Nakuru - Two legislators from Jubilee camp Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati) and David Gikaria (Nakuru East) have termed Adan Duale’s remarks in critiquing the government on curfew as reckless and insensitive to Kenyans.
The two lawmakers said that the leader of Majority at the National Assembly should not be misled by his own personal emotions on matters of security.
“Duale’s remarks are reckless and insensitive to Kenyans and especially to those people who have lost their loves in Lamu County,” said Ngunjiri.
Speaking during a press briefing on Monday in Nakuru town, Bahati MP Ngunjiri said that the work of Duale at the floor of the house is to support the government but not to object to the curfew imposed by Inspector General David Kimayo.
Ngunjiri said that it has been noted that the leader of Majority has been objecting every move the government’s takes whenever theirs is some attacks in the country saying that it is high time he came out and tell where his allegiance belongs.
The Bahati MP added that they fully support the new curfew imposed in Lamu County by Kimayo saying it will help curb the rising insecurity menace.
“We support the IG directive of curfew because it will help curb insecurity in Lamu county and the killings of the innocent Kenyans,” he said.
Nakuru East MP Gikaria said that said that the remarks made by Duale do not in anyway reflect the position of Jubilee government and its manifesto.
He said that Duale does not seat in the security committee neither is he in a position to give orders regarding the security of the Nation.
Gikaria said that if the leader of majority is tired with his position he should step down since he is getting “drunk with the power”.
“I would like to ask the honorable member to step down if the seat is too hot for him or if he’s getting drunk with the power because we have other capable leaders who can unite this nation,” he said.
Duale was recently quoted saying people of Lamu County should ignore the imposed curfew by the government and continue with their work uninterrupted.
