09 February 2015, 11:38
Nyeri - Tetu MP, Ndung'u Gethenji has lashed out at the opposition for filing a case against the new security laws.
Gethenji, who is also the Chairman of parliamentary committee of Defence and Foreign Relations, said the new laws were meant to give the country's security forces powers to fight insecurity including terrorism.
He accused the Coalition of Reforms and Democracy (CORD) for the daled implementation of the laws, saying they had a sinister motive by challenging the laws in court.

CORD filed the case against the new laws arguing that some sections of the law were infringing on basic human rights.
“It is like some people prefer it when the country is affected by terrorism as they will then turn around and accuse the government of being unable to protect its people,” Gethenji asserted.
The MP made the remarks while addressing the media at Wamagana shopping centre after touring development projects in his constituency.
