CORD told to stop policizing Media Bill

05 December 2013, 17:08 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The Parliamentary Information and Communication Committee (PICC) has cautioned the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) against politicizing the controversial Media Bill.

Hon. Jamleck Kamau, the PICC Chairman said that CORD members are hypocritically politicizing the Media Bill claiming it was Jubilee Government's plan to gag the media yet they too supported the Bill when it was tabled in Parliament.

"CORD members should not deceive the public that they are defendants of the media yet none of them rejected it when presented on the floor," said Jamleck.

"It is also clear that this Bill was not a pro-Jubilee plan to gag the media because it did not garner the required two-third votes after being referred back to Parliament by the President upon making changes to some of its clauses," he added.

Kamau said the Wednesday's MP's vote to reject of the Bill was not achieved by the CORD members since their counterparts in Jubilee were the majority in the House, thus contributed a lot in voting against it.

He added that the Jubilee coalition did not mobilize its members to vote for the Bill because every member has his rightful decision to make without being persuaded.

"The Bill is now in the President's hands to make the decision on it within seven days; failure to do so in the stipulated period means it automatically becomes law," noted Kamau.

He said this would then be reversed through the court's ruling.

Kamau urged media stakeholders to be holding discussions with the lawmakers to consult with one another in formulating policies pertaining the media.
