MP to table censure motion against Kimaiyo

25 November 2014, 17:24 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP, Kanini Kega has hinted plans to table a motion in Parliament seeking the ouster of Inspector General (IG) of Police, David Kimaiyo alongside his two deputies.

Kanini said the three should be held responsible for the increasing cases of insecurity in the country, citing the Saturday mass murder of 28 passengers in Mandera County.

He said Kimaiyo should admit that his docket has failed because Kenyans are tired of security threats.

“If Kimaiyo and his deputies care about the security situation in the country, they should have resigned,” said Kanini.

Speaking at his office in Mweiga town, the MP added that the constitution should be amended to bestow the powers of hiring and firing the police boss upon the President.

“We should revert to the old security system of policing which had a police commissioner in charge of Regular Police and a police commandant in charge of the Administration Police. The constitution should be amended because we have realised the errors,” Kanini explained.

The legislator accused Kimaiyo of incompetence saying his record speaks for itself.

“Kimayo has failed and no question on that because it is clearly visible. He should resign and leave the office someone else who is competent enough,” he stated.

In regard to Mandera killings, Kanini asked the Muslim community leaders to take stern measures against the perpetrators saying that two of the victims were sisters from his constituency at Njoguini village.
