Your Excellency the Governor, Hon. Members of the Second Assembly, Political Party Representatives, Press, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen.

In the first place I thank the Almighty God for the great favour He has reposed in me. I thank the entire leadership of my party including the Party Leader and MCAs for their support. I also have to thank the staff for guiding the House up to this time. Their priceless guidance will be valued in future.

It is a great honour to be elected as Speaker of this Honourable House. I see my presence here as a home coming albeit with a greater responsibility. I am grateful to all who reposed resounding trust in me to make this possible. I pray to the Almighty God that I shall successfully travel the path pursued by men and women of goodwill in this Great County of Kisumu.

I wish to congratulate Hon. Members for winning your seats. It is a unique opportunity to serve our Dear County.
