Dadaab camp a haven for terrorists, says MP

30 September 2013, 13:48 Wilshere

Nakuru - The chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Security, Asman Kamama, has called on the government to shut down the Dadaab refugee camp.

Kamama, who is also the Tiaty MP, said that the refugee camp has become a haven for terrorists who are bringing unrest in the country and that it should be closed and the refugees taken back to their homeland in Somalia.

The MP said the government should re-think about the status of the refugees and also called for the scrutiny of the Immigration and Registration of Persons and punishment of the officials who allow illegal aliens into the country.

“It's beyond believe that terrorists can launch three simultaneous attacks in the country without the knowledge of the security personnel," he said.

The legislator, who was speaking during the burial of the late Steve Chumo over the weekend, said that the Kenyan government should not allow illegal aliens to move into the country pointing that terrorists acts should not be condoned.

He further said that it was a shame that it took the security personnel too long to rescue the hostages from the Westgate mall.  

“The government needs to set up measures that will curb cases of terror attack on our citizens,” he said.  

The MP further urged the public to emulate the late Chumo whom he described as a steadfast person who strived to bring development in the society.     

The Baringo County Senator, Gideon Moi, who conveyed condolences from former President Daniel Moi to the family, said the late Chumo was a leader who will be remembered for being a shrewd businessperson in Nakuru County.
