Nyeri - A motion seeking to compel security agencies to investigate the rising cases of insecurity in the country will soon be tabled in parliament.
The Parliamentary Committee of Defense and Foreign Relations chair, Ndung'u Githinji has said his committee will table a motion asking the security select committee to investigate the high rates of insecurity in the country.
He said the committee was concerned with the increasing levels of insecurity in various parts of the country and parliament should address the issue urgently.
Speaking at his Tetu constituency in Nyeri, Ndung’u stated that if the motion is passed, the select committee will carry out investigations on the causes of insecurity and how security agencies have been responding to the cases.
He explained that the committee will also interrogate the security personnel on why they have allowed organized groups to be a threat to national security.
Once the interrogations are over, those found guilty of neglecting their duties should be sacked and replaced at once, according to Ndung’u.
