CORD leaders lambast government on insecurity

10 June 2014, 18:03 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leaders Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka have called on the government to seek redress over the state of lawlessness in the country.

The leaders were reacting to the killing of muslim cleric Sheik Mohamed Idris, the chairman of the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya, who was shot as he left a mosque early Tuesday morning.

They said that the government has to step up its efforts to stem the tide of insecurity, even if it means them asking for help.

" The levels of insecurity in the country have reached alarming levels, Raila said.

" Sheikh Idris is among 21 clerics who have mysteriously been killed in this country without anyone been apprehended. Who is responsible for these killings? We have the best intelligence unit, police service, and the criminal investigation department but it beats logic that we are unable to get to the root cause of these killings, he said in Mombasa.

On his part, Kalonzo was of the opinion that something is seriously wrong in government at the moment, as regards the state of the nation.

" There is something seriously wrong in the country and the government has to address it soon.

" The tragic death of Sheikh Idris a mark of rising insecurity. If leaders can't survive what chance do ordinary citizens have?, he added.

Police have said that they are yet to determine the persons behind the killings, which are the seventh of their kind this year alone.

Human rights activists allege that the government is behind a long string of killings of Muslim leaders. Sheik Aboud Rogo Mohammed was killed in August 2012. Sheik Ibrahim Ismael was killed in October 2013. In April gunmen shot and killed Abubakar Shariff Ahmed, known as Makaburi, near a mosque.
