Jubilee MP condemns Duale for failing to name terror financiers

Nairobi - Tetu MP Ndung’u Gethenji has castigated leaders from Northern Kenya for refusing to name financiers, collaborators and sympathizers of the Al-Shabaab terror group as they had promised.
The MP, who is also chairman of Security Committee in parliament, said their sudden change of heart was equivalent to aiding terrorism in the country.
He asked the national Criminal Investigations Department Director, Ndegwa Muhoro to investigate the political leaders to find out the truth.
Gethenji who was speaking to the media in his constituency said the leaders needed to take the high moral ground and name the culprits since they offered to do so voluntarily.
The legislator took issue with National Assembly leader of majority, Aden Duale’s comment that he owed no one any apology or any list regarding Al-Shabaab sympathizers.
He said the leaders must be forced to release the names as they promised following the killing of 148 students by the terror gang at the Garissa University College in April, this year.
“It is very disturbing to see leaders playing politics with lives when the country has lost such a huge number of souls,” said Gethenji.
Speaking recently in Garissa, a section of North Eastern leaders called for deployment of more security forces, allocation of more funds, vetting of businesses and registration of hotel guests in the area and also banning importation of vehicles through Somalia.
