  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Deputy Speaker, for giving me this opportunity to contribute. I want to start by congratulating Hon. Kimunya on his appointment as the Leader of the Majority Party. He is very experienced. I am sure that he will use his experience to further the interest of Kenyans. view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Deputy Speaker. I would also like to congratulate Hon. Duale for the good job that he has done for this Parliament. He has been consistent on the independence of the National Assembly. He has done a very good job. The only thing that all of us agree with is that Hon. Duale was removed because of politics; but not because of under-performance. He did not read the politics of the future very fast. When we said that the country needs to come together, he stayed behind. view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: We need to thank Hon. Duale for putting up the fight, especially on the welfare of the Members of Parliament. If there is anyone who believes in the Members of Parliament in this House, it is Hon. Duale. There is a big difference between Hon. Duale on the microphone and as a person. I related very well with him on the matters of his House. He does not care which political party you belong to. Such a leader is very rare to come by. When Hon.

  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you. I just wanted to agree with the Chairman and say that this amendment is very important for institutionalization of PPPs. You realise that the Government is borrowing much to fund infrastructure. We have been saying here that some of these debts are very expensive. So, this amendment will ensure that we can fund some of these projects without using our resources. I thank you. view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposesonly. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor. view
  • 18 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker for giving me this opportunity to make my contributions to this year’s Finance Bill. I want to start by saying that I support the Bill as presented by the Committee. view
  • 18 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: The Finance Bill is literally how the economy is going to raise the resources that will be used to fund the Budget. So, throughout my life in this Parliament, this is the first time we have a simpler and clear Finance Bill. I want to make a few remarks on three areas. view
  • 18 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: On Income Tax, I support the proposal to introduce minimum tax. There are very many businesses in this economy that run each year, but do not pay taxes because they make losses. While doing those businesses, they use the infrastructure that has been set up and funded by taxpayers. Therefore, it is very important that we normalize everybody in tax payment, especially on this line. So, the introduction of 1 per cent tax of turnover of each and every business is going to ensure that all businesses enjoying Government infrastructure pay for it. view
