Wetang'ula asks Uhuru to dialogue with CORD to stem insecurity

02 December 2014, 12:46 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetang’ula has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to consider having a dialogue with the opposition leaders on the rising insecurity situation in the country.

Wetang'ula, who is one of the Cord Principals, said the President should not work in isolation when it comes to the matters of security, urging the President and his Jubilee administration to join hands with other leaders to end the insecurity menace.

''When we say we want dialogue with the President, we are not after snatching him the leadership but what we want is to address the security situation in the country,” said the Senate Minority Leader.

Speaking over the weekend at Marofu village in Kimilili Constutiency during the burial of Timothy Wafula, one of the teachers who was killed by Al Shaabab in the Mandera bus attack, the Senator took issue with the government for telling Kenyans to protect themselves.

''How can the President tell Kenyans that security starts with them when they are always unarmed and innocent?'' wondered Wetang'ula.

The Senate Minority Leader said it was the responsibility of the government to protect its citizens and asked the President to involve other leaders in security matters.

''We are not going to sit and watch as innocent Kenyans are killed all over the country. We must be involved so that we can give our input,'' said Wetang'ula.

Bungoma north Kenya National Union of Teachers [KNUT] branch executive secretary, Seme Sunguti, asked the government to  start employing teachers immediately after graduating from college.

He said delay in employing teachers was making most of those who complete colleges to risk their lives by going to insecurity prone areas in search of employment.

''Our teachers met their deaths because they had gone to Mandera to look for employment. We are demanding that the government start employing all teachers immediately they graduate from their respective institutions," said Sunguti.
