Parliament on high alert over terror threats

29 April 2015, 08:17 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Security has been heightened at Parliament following the arrest of an alleged under-cover Al Shabaab operative in the building.

According to detectives, the suspect was allegedly working with Al-Shabaab terrorists to plant bombs in Parliament.

National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi asked the MPs to adhere to various security checks installed within the Parliament’s precincts and cooperate with security enforcing agencies.

“From now on, the Speaker’s rules on admittance of strangers will be strictly enforced, including the requirement that an MP will not be allowed to have more than two visitors at any one time,” said Muturi.

He directed that visitors will not be allowed to access Parliament without duly authorized visitor’s cards and warned that no visitor aboard the MP’s vehicle will be allowed in, except the legislator’s driver and official bodyguards.

“All other passengers will be required to alight from the vehicle at the gate for screening and scrutiny of the invitation cards,” said Muturi.

Muturi who also chairs the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) reiterated that the commission is keenly following up on the case of the arrested Senate staff, Ali Abdulmajid Ahmed, believed to be an under-cover Al-Shabaab operative within parliament.

However, the Speaker assured the MPs and all Parliamentary staff that the adopted stringent security measures will ensure that everyone is secure while discharging their duties.
