Raila warned against intimidating courts, police

18 June 2016, 15:37 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The Chairman Parliamentary Committee on Defence and Foreign Relations Ndung’u Gethenji has said that CORD leader Raila Odinga is intimidating the Judiciary and police.

Gethenji accused Odinga of spreading unconstitutionalism in the Country and causing alarm.

In reference to Odinga’s statement on Thursday urging police to release opposition MPs with 24 hours, Gethenji accused the former premier of being disrespectful to the rule of law.

“The lawmakers were lawfully in police custody following a court order. Odinga should stop interfering with court processes,” noted Gethenji.

The MPs were released on bond terms on Friday evening.

Gethenji urged police to remain firm and independent and work without influence or intimidation.

“Intimidation will not be allowed in this country. Government institutions should be allowed to work and execute their duties effectively,” said Gethenji.

Speaking at Kahigaini village in his Tetu constituency, Gethenji noted that the opposition leader ‘cannot choose which court orders to comply with and which ones to defy’.

He further condemned the opposition leader for defending hate speech suspects.

He stated that by the CORD leader's call for the unconditional release of the 8 MPs accused of causing danger to the public through their utterances, he showed that he himself lacks leadership qualities.
