MPs form 'Nakuru Defence Force'' to protect Jubilee government

03 June 2016, 13:47 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Three members of Parliament from Nakuru County have formed what they call the 'Nakuru Defence Force' to protect and defend President Uhuru Kenyatta and his government against attacks from the opposition coalition CORD.

MPs Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati), Samuel Arama (Nakuru west) and David Gikaria (Nakuru east) said they have been forced to form the defence force because of the persistent and dangerous attacks being directed towards the government by the opposition leaders.

Speaking on Thursday during the re-launch of the NYS Kazi kwa Vijana program, the three MPs said that the force will counter CORD's attacks on the president and also counter CORD street protests head on.

The MPs said that they have taken enough from CORD leaders and their supporters and its time Jubilee also defended itself.

"These people have crossed the red line and even gone ahead to giving the President ultimatums and we are not taking it anymore," said Ngunjiri.

"We also have the Nakuru defence force led by my colleagues (Arama and Gikaria) and I, and we shall defend the President and his government against CORD and if they go to the streets on Monday they will meet us there," he added.

On his part, Gikaria asked the police to stay away during CORD protests and allow the Nakuru defence force to deal with them.

"We want the police not to be troubled but stay away and just allow us to deal with CORD protesters one on one so that we can teach them a lesson," said Gikaria.

Arama called on Nakuru residents to come out on Monday and teach CORD protesters a lesson.

"When they come out, we will also come out and I want you to come out and help me teach those hooligans a lesson. I will be personally leading the defence force," said Arama.

The MPS called on president Kenyatta not to be moved by CORD demands and attacks because they are ready to deal with CORD and defend him.
