Yesterday evening, the UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, paid a courtesy call on Speaker of the House, Ekwee Ethuro, at his office in Parliament.

Ekwee David Ethuro is a Kenyan politician who was born on 31 December 1963 and from 1998 to 2013 he served as a Turkana Central’s Member of Parliament.

Ethuro was first elected to Parliament in the 1997 General Election, and has been re-elected three times, consecutively. He served as the Assistant Minister for Planning and National Development from 1998 to 2002 under President Moi’s government, an appointment that came immediately after his first election to Parliament.

He was re-elected as Member of Parliament for Turkana Central in the 2007 general elections and steered the proceedings of the 10th Parliament in the position of acting Speaker of the House whenever the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker were absent.

He was elected as the first Speaker of the modern Kenyan Senate on 28 March 2013.
