Legislators warn Joseph Nkaissery over new security laws

By Erick Abuga | Feb 2nd 2015 | 1 min read

Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery has been cautioned against implementing the new security laws until the case in court is determined.

Led by Kitutu Masaba MP Timothy Bosire and his Borabu counterpart Ben Momanyi, the leaders said the recent arrest of five leaders from Narok was a clear indication of bad things to come.

Nkaissery had warned that those who were behind the Narok violence, targeting law enforcement officers, would face the wrath of the law.

Narok County Police Commander Paul Leting and a General Service Unit officer were among those injured in the Narok demonstration early last week.

Defied directive

Nkaissery had earlier on warned against any form of protests in the county, advising that leadership issues should be resolved through dialogue. He later ordered the leaders behind the protests be questioned after they defied the directive.

However, speaking on Friday in Borabu, Nyamira County, Bosire warned that the implementation of the new security laws was against the will of Kenyans and in contradiction of the spirit of the new Constitution that Kenyans fought for.

"This is a retrogressive act and an attempt to undermine the Bill of Rights as enshrined in the Constitution. There is a court case on a section of these laws which Nkaissery has to respect. Nkaissery has changed too fast," said Bosire.
