Jubilee senator tells Moses Kuria to back off

Nakuru - Nakuru Senator James Mwangi has told Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria to stop interfering with the business of the Senate.
Speaking in Nakuru town Sunday, Mwangi told Kuria he had no mandate whatsoever to tell Jubilee senators not to honour summons by the Senate speaker Ekwe Ethuro recalling them to a special sitting on Tuesday to debate the recently enacted security laws.
Mwangi said that Senate is an independent institution, which has its own laws and does not need direction from an outsider.
“I want to urge my friend Kuria to concentrate on Parliament matters and leave the Senate alone. We are independent people with independent minds and he does not have to order us or give us directions. Going back for a special sitting does not mean we are going to oppose the laws and after all, the president signed the bill into law and as the Senate there is little we can do about it,” said Mwangi.
