CORD heads to court Monday to challenge Security laws

22 December 2014, 10:06 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The CORD coalition will file a case at the High Court Monday to have the controversial security laws revoked.

The coalition had promised last week, soon after the then Security Bill 2914 was passed by the Jubilee coalition, that it would go to court to challenge its admission.

And with president Uhuru Kenyatta signing it into law Friday, the coalition now has the go ahead to head to court to contest the move.

A source within the higher ranks of the party told News24 that there was already a team of lawyers and officials set up to look at the matter and represent the coalition in court.

" The matter will be filed in court today (Monday) once the laws are officially gazetted in the Kenya Gazette which will be done Monday morning," the source that did not want to be named said.

" There is a team that has already been engaged to deal with the matter and they feel they have a basis to prove the new laws are unconstitutional, the source added.

Last week, CORD Senators led by Kakamega's Bonny Khalwale had promised to move to court to challenge the new laws.

" We will challenge them in court. That is for sure," a displeased Khalwale said.

" The government has done what it wants and within its right so what we will do is challenge it also through a constitutional process, which means going to court," he added.

It is understood that Siaya Senator James Orengo is at the centre of plans to have the matter legally addressed in court.
