Legislative Work

As an MP in the 10th Parliament, rated 4th best and 1st among the first time MPs in my first year as MP, by the Federation of Women Lawyers in their audit of performance of the 10th Parliament in 2009. I ranked among the most popular Kenyans by a research carried out by the Star Newspaper and as among the movers and shakers in 2010 by the weekly Financial Post issue of 10th January 2011.

I have been involved in the legislation of various Bills and Acts.

Alcoholic Drinks Control Act, 2010
The Sugar (Amendment) Bill
Nurses (Amendment) Bill 2010
Labour Institutions (Amendment) Bill 2011
Traffic (amendment) Bill (proposed)
Senior Citizens Bill (proposed)
Veterans Motion

I moved the Veterans Motion which was unanimously passed by Parliament on the 8th October 2008. It sought to have all independence war veterans dating back to colonial time compensated with at least 2.5 acres of arable Land. This motion and the resolution by Parliament formed part of the case in which the Mau Mau veterans took to Britain leading to the payment of the first over 5,000 freedom fighters.

On 16th July 2008, I gave notice to move a motion to establish social and economic assistance for senior citizens to cushion them against the high cost of living. This idea was quickly taken up by the government and led to the monthly stipend for the elderly that today benefits over half a million people.
