Nyeri - Gichugu MP, Njogu Barua has asked his fellow legislators to remain firm in fighting all sorts of impunity including corruption.
Barua said MPs should not be intimidated and whenever they raise issues regarding their security, police should secure them adequately.
“Recently we lost Muchai, the MP for Kabete. We are not going to speculate on who were involved in his murder or what happened, but I would like to ask the law enforcement agents to enhance security of legislators,” said Barua.
He added that those with information should be called to give evidence ‘but no one was allowed to tell them to shut up’.

Barua said parliament was an independent institution which operated exclusively and therefore any attempts to gag its members would be resisted.
“I want to condemn the threats by certain people against two MPs; Alice Ng’ang’a and Moses Kuria over the comments they made cornering the death of Muchai,” he said.
“The fears by MPs are genuine and should be left to ventilate and give proposals on how their security should be improved,” he said.
