MP accuses Judiciary of slowing down development

29 September 2014, 10:31 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP, Kanini Kega has accused the Judiciary of obstructing the country’s growth and development by issuing injunctions and orders stopping implementation of some of the government’s development projects.

Kega stated that the national government may not be able to execute its mandate due to the numerous cases pending in court.

“There have been so many cases pitting implementation of development projects initiated by Jubilee government. Judiciary should allow the government to perform its duties,” said Kega.

While speaking at his constituency on Saturday, the MP faulted a court order that cancelled tender for free laptop projects.

“Kids are still demanding their laptops from the government and they do not understand that the tender was canceled by court,” he added while urging the government to expedite the process.

He further lashed at the Judiciary over reinstatement of Embu Governor Martin Wambora who was impeached by a Senate committee on Public Accounts.

“Judiciary is hampering operations of other arms of government. Constitution is clear over impeachment of a Governor and Judiciary had no role in Wambora’s issues because the Senate had already determined his fate,” noted Kega.

He explained that courts should interpret the constitution ‘but not overstepping on other institution’s duties’.

Kega made the remarks at Mureru Primary School after a ground breaking ceremony for construction of new classrooms at the school.

He said the school would benefit from new classrooms funded by are CDF kitty since the current structures were condemned by government in year 2011 after they were found unfit to house pupils.
