Wetangula wants Uhuru, Ruto to resign

13 April 2015, 11:45 Mwangi Karanja

Kitale - The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) co-principal, Moses Wetangula has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to resign alleging that the Jubilee administration has failed to protect Kenyans and their property.

Speaking in Kiminini Trans Nzoia County during the burial of one of the victims of Garissa terror attack, Wetangula said that Kenyans regret having a government that does not give their security the attention it deserves.

“We have a government that is like a PR firm and is not protecting Kenyans against terror attacks even after receiving intelligence reports. They need to resign and allow people who are ready to work for Kenyans to take over the management of the country,” said Wetangula.

He cited confusion in the process of police recruitment as signs of failure by the government.

At the same time, the Bungoma Senator slammed the government for purported slow response to the Garissa attack that left 147 students dead.

He claimed that more than 70 percent of students who perished could have been saved.

He observed that the intelligence department was not working in sync with other security agents as he wondered why security officers had to be deployed from Nairobi to the scene of terror attack in Garissa yet there is a military base nearby.

Wetang’ula also revealed that the Senate had passed a law that will see each County receive KES 100 million for emergency response.

He called for an inquiry into the conduct of the military officers in the North Eastern region citing that they failed to respond to the terror attack.

He said a probe should be done on the person commanding the force to establish why he did not direct the military to respond to the attack.

He said that corruption in the government has a part in the surging insecurity in the country, calling upon the president to pull up his socks to ensure that corrupt officers at Kenyan entry points have been prosecuted.

More than seven families of the Garissa terror attack victims in Trans Nzoia buried their lost kins at the weekend.
