Opposition: Insecurity is a national disaster

02 April 2014, 10:14

Nairobi - A section of legislators drawn from the opposition have called on the government to declare insecurity in the country as a national disaster.

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) legislators, led by Florence Mutua, the Woman Representative for Busia County, said that the country was facing a security crisis.

“A crisis where mothers worry about their daughters walking home from school, where the faithful worry about their worship in church/ mosque, and honest, hard working Kenyan fathers worry about keeping their families and property safe,” said Mutua.

Junet Mohamed, the MP for Suna East and Opiyo Wandayi, the MP for Ugunja, said that it was disheartening to see that nobody had been convicted for the murder of Kenyans in the terror attack that was carried out on the Westgate Mall.

The legislators decried the state of insecurity in the country saying that if police had thoroughly investigated the Sunday explosion in Eastleigh, the recurrence on Monday would have been avoided.

Mutua said that the government seemed not to be taking the insecurity issue seriously.

The legislator said the President should have postponed his trip to Brussels after the Eastleigh explosion in order to give it the attention it deserved.

Monday’s twin explosions in Eastleigh claimed six lives while injuring eight others.

The neighborhood has been prone to multiple explosions since Kenyan troops were sent to Somalia to pursue Al Shabaab militants.
