President urged to solve stalemate between Judiciary, legislature

26 February 2014, 08:02 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Tetu MP, Ndung'u Gethenji has called on the President to solve the current stalemate between the Judiciary and the Legislature through dialogue.

Gethenji said President Uhuru should facilitate a meeting with the heads of the two arms of government to determine future working relationships and avoid situations where the legal actions of any of the arms are in collision with each other.

He was referring to the war of words between the Senate and Judiciary over the impeachment of Embu governor, Martin Nyaga Wambora, who was summoned by the Senate in spite of court orders stopping the Embu County Assembly from debating an impeachment motion.

Gethenji however defended Parliament's right to oversee the operations of any state organ stating that the duty is bestowed upon them by the Constitution.

"It is therefore perplexing to see another arm of the government try to hinder parliament in its execution of duties," he said.

The MP spoke at Kigogoini village in his constituency during the launch of the Nyumba Kumi security initiative.

He said families brought together under the ten-household clusters should go beyond looking at security matters but instead expand their mandate to looking after the general welfare of each other so that no single family is left behind.

He noted that families should know who among them were going through hardships and assist where they could.

"We can only move forward if we are all moving together," he added.
