CORD told to support government in fighting insecurity

04 December 2014, 13:03 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) should offer solutions to the insecurity menace that has hit the country instead of condemning the government, Kieni MP Kanini Kega has said.

Kega said CORD is not justified to criticize the government, stating that terrorism is a global problem.

“Other countries are mourning with Kenya over the attacks by Al Shabbab but the opposition is just giving the government ultimatums which is not the solution,” said Kega.

While addressing his constituents at Chaka township, the MP said the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) should not be withdrawn from Somalia because by doing so, the government will be giving in to Al Shabaab demands.

The opposition coalition has been asking the government to withdraw KDF from Somalia.

“Kenya is under attack and the enemies must be fought from within and without. It is sad the opposition is supporting some of the Al Shabaab demands. The government should intensify border patrols to ensure the country is secure,” said Kega.

The MP mourned that among the 36 people killed in a Mandera quarry on Tuesday, about 18 were his constituents from Chaka Township.

He called for calmness and urged the residents to avoid any retaliatory plans stating that the government is in full control of security.

His sentiment was echoed by Nyeri County commissioner, Micheal Ole Tialal who said Al Shabaab is aimed at provoking Kenyans through the attacks.

“It is the appropriate time we unite and show the enemy that we cannot be divided. We should continue living in harmony as usual,” said the commissioner.

He urged the religious leaders to engage into the mission of preaching peace, love and unity.

“Religious leaders across all faiths should support government interventions in seeking lasting solutions in security sector,” said the commissioner.
