'We can't trust govt leaders with TJRC'

30 May 2013, 12:29 Mwangi Karanja

Both houses of parliament should move quickly to make the government have an independent commission to implement the findings of TJRC, Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula has said.

Speaking at Kitale Club in Kitale Wednesday, Wetangula said if formed, the commission would ensure the recommendations by the TJRC will not get to shelves and gather dust.

“The findings should be put into action by the government without waste of time and both houses should ensure that the government forms an independent commission to handle the report,” he said.

He observed that top leaders of the country have been mentioned in various ways and it is unlikely that they will implement the report adding that the formation of an independent organ was indisputable.

“The government top leaders have been mentioned and you don’t expect them to nail themselves. Like the commission of implementation of the constitution that is autonomous, we need such a commission to implement the report,” said Wetangula.

He added, “Leaders will most likely work in a manner that makes them comfortable, thus we cannot allow them to handle the report on their own.”

He further pointed out that the government has been poor in handling outcome of such investigations and they never implement anything as they have decided to put aside vital reports from Kenyans at the expense of the public.

“The commission has recommended people to be investigated and is good that they clear their names,” the Ford Kenya Party leader further added.

Wetangula further said that his party would conduct grassroots elections nationally soon in a bid to strengthen the party.

Present at the press briefing were Ford Kenya Leaders from the County and the party Secretary General Dr. Eseli Simiyu.
