Marende refuses to rule on Baragoi military role

14 December 2012, 11:10

Nairobi - House Speaker Kenneth Marende on Thursday declined to give a ruling on the legality of President Kibaki’s move to send the military to quell violence in Baragoi and Garissa — the two towns where bandits had killed police officers and soldiers.

According to Daily Nation,the Speaker dismissed the plea by ODM Chief Whip Jakoyo Midiwo, saying he appeared to have lost confidence in the House when he sought a constitutional declaration on the legality of the deployment of the troops within the country from the High Court.

Marende told Midiwo to conduct his business in the house if he believes in it. Because the prayers at the High Court are similar to those in the House, Marende said Midiwo would just have to wait for the court’s ruling.
