Nyeri - The scuffle witnessed in Parliament during debate on Security Bill 2014was shameful and unfortunate, Kieni MP Kanini Kega has said.
“I wish to apologize to Kenyans on behalf of Jubilee MPs and other parliamentarians over the issue. It was the first time MPs engaged in brawls and to some extent exchanged punches. The reputation of the house was lowered but we are very remorseful,” said Kega.
Speaking at a press conference in a Nyeri hotel, Kega reported that female MPs who kept on shouting at the Deputy Speaker accelerated the scuffle.
“We saw a female MP pour water on the Deputy Speaker during the session while another one shouted and insulted her. That was unacceptable,” said Kega.
Kega asked the ethics commission to probe the matter and punish those found culpable of causing violence in the house.
He said the opposition members had made a plot to cause chaos in Parliament in efforts of ensuring that the bill does not sail through.
He however lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta for signing the bill into law stating that the new laws will assist security apparatus to counter insecurity in the country.
