Raila canes Uhuru over Mandera killings

23 November 2014, 18:36 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says that the Jubilee government must up its game or risk being demonized by Kenyans over the state of insecurity in the country.

Raila was reacting to the latest attack on innocent Kenyans, where a bus attacked by al- Shabaab militants left 28 people dead in Mandera early Saturday.

The CORD leader insists that if the government does not step up, Kenyans will be forced to take charge of the situation themselves.

" This latest occurrence is sickening and the government has once again let down Kenyans in a serious way, he said.

" We remind Jubilee that it is dragging our resilient nation into the ditch and we shall neither forgive nor forget. We shall never accept this and move on. When can we expect an end to this desperate state of affairs? Where is the bottom? We ask the government to give us answers. For this cannot go on forever," he added.

Raila also criticized the heads of security and national police service for sleeping on the job.

" It is saddening to see nothing done about the state of the country's security machinery and especially seeing police officers getting promotions while innocent people are dying, he added.

He also wondered why to this day there have been no changes to the country's top security organs.

" After every attack, no single strong action is taken to resurrect people’s confidence. Only warnings flow, then the military are sent to the scene. Each security failure is being used to move Kenya from being a longed-for democracy into a military State," he added.

Deputy President William Ruto has since said that there are serious questions being asked of the top security officers in the country and that there will be action taken to stem the current tide.

Interior security CS Joseph Ole Lenku and Police boss David Kimaiyo have on several occasions been asked to resign as well as been told off by members of parliament and other leaders but the president has yet to take any action on them.
