Opposition to Sue Gov’t Over Construction of Security Wall

CORD Senators Moses Wetangula of Bungoma, James Orengo of Siaya and Hassan Omar of Mombasa said that they will have no option than to move to court should the government fail to rescind its decisions.

CORD argues that the move by the government is unconstitutional and will not resolve the security crisis.

“The Jubilee government has been busy making roadside declarations from everywhere. We are reminding them that this is not the solution to insecurity,” said Wetangula.

 

Wall a result of corruption

The CORD team accused the government of failing to address the insecurity challenge saying that the construction of the security wall is just a waste of public funds.

The team further alleged that the security wall construction is a result of corruption in the government.

They further accused the government of being insensitive to the refugees by threatening to shut down the Daadab refugee Camp.

CORD pointed out that the closure of the camp will have far-reaching consequences on Kenya’s future and relationship with other nations.

It further called on the government to work with the relevant agencies like the United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) to screen the refugees.
