Nakuru - The opposition has been accused of seeking political gain from the insecurity being witnessed in the country.
Two Jubilee MPs allege that the opposition is not sincere in their support for the fight against insecurity.
Speaking in Naivasha on Tuesday, Naivasha MP John Kihagi and his Kinangop colleague, Stephen Kinyanjui said that Cord want to use lack of security in the country to discredit the government come 2017.
“The opposition wants to use insecurity as a ploy in 2017 elections. They are not sincere in supporting the government to fight terrorism because they know failure to contain insecurity will be to their advantage,” said Kihagi.

The legislators said all Kenyans should rally behind the government in the fight against attacks in Kenya irrespective of their political affiliation.
On his part, Kinyanjui said that government’s decision to close down Garissa-based Dadaab refugee camp was prudent as it had turned out to be a threat to homeland security.
“Dadaab (refugee camp) should be closed to stop terrorists from disguising as refugees,” said the Kinangop MP.
The two MPs promised to support the Jubilee government fully in its efforts to curb the runaway insecurity.
