NCIC vs elders in Nakuru
10 September 2012, 11:38
The Rift Valley Council of elders has supported a former Nakuru councillor for filing a petition at the Nakuru high court seeking to have the commission disbanded for allegedly failing in its mandate and functions.
In a statement issued on a Monday morning by the council spokesman Gilbert Kabage, the council says that the decision by the councillor to file the petition was prudent since the peace accord was not all inclusive.
He said that members of the council had frequently criticized the manner in which the NCIC was conducting its business adding that the process locked out elected leaders.
He said that the council would support the councillor to ensure that justice is achieved.
Kabage who doubles as the council’s treasurer said that a meaningful peace accord can only be achieved through consultations among all stake holders and elected leaders.
He said that even all the 6 Nakuru county members of parliament had expressed doubt in the conduct of the NCIC activities right from the beginning.
Ndogo filed the petition through lawyer Njuguna Ndung’u on Monday last week where Justice Anyara Emukule certified the application as urgent and ordered that he serves the AG attorney general and the NCIC awaiting hiring on 20-09-2012.
The two have been named as 1st and 2nd respondents respectively with the AG being accused of failing to advise the government accordingly in view of the said misgivings which are in the public domain.
