Bungoma MPs condemn murder of Kombo's advocate

18 September 2013, 17:07 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - A group of more than seven MPs from Bungoma County have condemned the killing of Peter Wanyonyi, an advocate representing Musikari Kombo in a petition challenging the election of Moses Wetang'ula as the county's senator in the March 2013 General Elections.

The group led by Hon. Wafula Wamunyinyi, the Kanduyi constituency MP called on the government to speed up investigations into the incident to bring the responsible culprits to book. He was speaking in a press conference at the Parliament Buildings on Wednesday.

"We have noted that Bungoma County has been experiencing attacks leaving residents suffering from serious injuries and some killed yet no explanations have been given by the government in its investigations despite our persistent inquiries," said Hon. Wamunyinyi.

"We therefore call upon the government to speed up the investigation in the murder of the advocate for the culprits linked to his death to be brought to justice," added Wamunyinyi.

Wamunyinyi urged Bungoma residents to remain calm as the police carry out investigations and called on the public to provide the officers with information relating to the murder suspects to facilitate their arrest.

He also cautioned the public, politicians in the County and other leaders to desist from unhealthy and irresponsible utterances regarding the advocate's killing which might cause security threats and political skirmishes.

Wamunyinyi assured the residents that the County MPs will tirelessly inquire from the government to give reasons behind the May-June Bungoma killings and the responsible attackers judged accordingly.
