MPs will not be punished for Security Bill madness

10 February 2015, 18:12 William Korir

Nairobi - MPs will not be punished for the violence witnessed during the passing of  amendments to the controversial security bill in December.

Speaker Justin Muturi said Tuesday that no MP would be punished despite the shocking scenes in the house which saw MPs fight each other and proceedings disrupted by ill mannered parliamentarians.

The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC had earlier called on MPs to be prosecuted, a claim that had been criticized by political parties.

But Muturi ended any hopes of Kenyans seeing MPs who acted badly on that day, saying that the legislators were acting within their rights.

" No one will be punished. There is no reason to. MPs were acting within their rights. There is nothing much to talk about on that case," he said.

He also said that the Security Bill was passed within the law and that calls for it to be removed because it was irregularly enacted were out of order.

" Suspending the business of the house, especially when the house was back in from recess for a special session of the Committee was not something we would have considered.

" Yes, the behaviour was not good and was probably the worst I have ever seen, but the law had to be passed," he said.

The security law has since been suspended by the High Court, after the CORD coalition and human rights activists pleaded that the law was illegal and should be suspended.
