Muturi to blame as Court suspends Security Laws

02 January 2015, 12:58 William Korir

Nairobi - The High Court has condemned the actions of parliamentary Speaker Justin Muturi for allowing the Security Laws to be passed in a state of discord.

There was chaos in the house when the Security Bill 2014 amendments were passed in the house last month, with the Speaker eventually reading the bill and Jubilee coalition members passing it with members standing and general madness in the house.

In delivering his ruling suspending certain clauses of the now enacted laws Friday. Justice George Odunga said that the chaotic scenes in the house were unacceptable and that thew speaker was wrong to allow a law be passed in the manner it did, terming it unconstitutional.

" The manner in which the bill was passed was regrettable and unconstitutional as members were seen standing while the clauses were being read," he stated.

" It is expected that the house speaker ensures there is decorum and that laws are passed in the right order," he added.

Muturi has already been criticized by many for the manner in which the bill was passed, with the chaotic scenes in the house written on and reported the world over for the scenes witnessed by Kenyans on national television.

President Uhuru Kenyatta himself castigated MPs for the manner in which the passing of the laws was handled, terming it unfortunate and a bad example.
