Jubilee MPs want Duale to step aside
16 April 2015, 15:13
Nairobi – MPs allied to the Jubilee coalition have asked National Assembly Majority Leader, Adan Duale to step aside and bring names of terrorism sympathizers and financiers he had promised to provide together with other North Eastern leaders.
The more than 10 MPs led by TNA party chair Johnstone Sakaja and Mukureini MP Kabando wa Kabando, said it is taking long for Duale and his team to bring to limelight the list of terror suspects.
“North Eastern leaders are taking too long to mention names of those linked to terrorism and we are soon going to take action against them. Duale could have stepped aside and he could even have mentioned terrorism sympathizers and financiers before the Garissa University attack,” said Sakaja.
He affirmed that the Jubilee MPs are in full support of the government’s crackdown on terrorism, drug trafficking and graft, and warned culprits to desist from hiding behind politics, tribe and social status to evade accountability.

“We demand that the state confiscates all property of terrorism supporters, sympathizers and facilitators and adequately compensate families of terror victims, and sufficiently cover surviving Garissa University College students,” said Kabando.
The Mukureini MP also warned North Eastern leaders that any delay or failure to bring names of terrorism sympathizers will compel them to initiate parliamentary processes of removing all of them from House proceedings.
The MPs called on the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Bionett to immediately fire the Kenya Police Airwing Commandant, Rogers Mbithi for misusing public property by allowing the plane to carry his daughter-in-law from Mombasa at the expense of butchered Garissa University students.
“Time has come when the President should deal with incompetent public officers. Photos showing how the Recce squad plane was used by Mbithi’s daughter-in-law are in public domain and there is no need of launching investigations into the matter. The Inspector General of Police should act immediately by firing the commandant,” said Sakaja.
The MPs said that Parliament would stand in defense of public interest and that they will no longer be used as a rubberstamp in favor of few selfish individuals.
