Senator threatens legal action over new security laws

15 December 2014, 10:39 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Mombasa Senator, Hassan Omar has threatened to seek legal redress over the new security amendment Bill if it is assented into law by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Speaking in Mombasa during the launch of Pwani Youth challenge at Makadara grounds, Omar said the law is unconstitutional and has been passed by people who want to topple democracy in Kenya.

He termed the bill fascist and said it was targeting people of the North eastern and coastal regions.

“The government should bring policies that unite Kenyans not those that are meant to spread disunity and hatred among Kenyans," said Omar.

The Senator also cautioned the government against the continued killings and attacks in mosques saying it encourages radicalisation of youth in Mombasa.

He also argued that the bill was targeting the freedom of speech and preventing the media from carrying out their mandate.

“If you don’t want that picture to appear on the press, make sure there is security for that picture not to appear,” said Omar.

He however urged the youth to embrace education and pledged to use the constitution and the liberal minded leaders to safeguard the rights of Kenyans.

Mvita MP, Abdulswamad Sherrif Nassir also condemned the Bill saying that the community was not involved in making the bill.

“The new security bill has broken the law. Nothing on that 90-page document talks about the involvement of the society and community,” said Nassir.

He also revealed that the government is drafting a new bill that will enlist the ports and ferry services as properties of the national government.
