CORD turn to Senate to block Security laws

30 December 2014, 15:52 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition will turn to the Senate to try shelve the controversial Security Laws 2014.

In a special sitting Tuesday at the Senate, the CORD coalition team is expected to push for resolutions that will declare the already in effect laws null and void.

Their reasoning is that the laws were passed without direct input from the Senate as required by law and that they are thus illegal.

Led by minority leader Moses Wetangula, who asked for the special sitting, they will rally support from pro Jubilee coalition Senators to have the bill revoked, a move that might cause a few headaches for the ruling coalition.

If the motion is not passed, then Wetangula and CORD plan to head to the Supreme Court for interpretation of the law.

" There are serious questions from the Senate as to why the law was passed in the manner it was in the first place and why the Senate was not consulted on the matter," Wetangula said of the special sitting.

If there is opposition from Jubilee Senators, which is likely as they do not want to be seen to go against coalition protocol, then CORD will try push for Supreme Court intervention.

CORD already has a case at the High Court which seeks to have the already enacted laws declared unconstitutional.

That case will be decided Friday, after both sides were given time to state their pleas and submissions.
