Nairobi - The Parliamentary Departmental Committee on National Security and Administration (DCNSA) has vowed to lawfully punish security officers who will be found guilty of looting the Westgate mall during the recent attack by Al Shabaab.

Addressing the press at Parliament after meeting with members, Hon. Asman Kamama, the Chairman Departmental Committee on National Security and Administration, cautioned the public against stereotyping security officers as looters until investigation is over and those involved brought to book.

"We know well that there was looting at Westgate but we are yet to establish the responsible looters despite allegations by the public that they were the security officers at the mall," said Kamama.
