MPs oppose KDF in Samburu

15 November 2012, 13:59

Samburu - Daily Nation reports that, three MPs from Turkana County on Thursday criticised the deployment of Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) personnel to Suguta, Samburu County warning that it was illegal and likely to disrupt the planned voter registration expected to start next Monday.

The MPs led by Labour Minister John Munyes, Wildlife Assistant Minister Josephat Nanok and Turkana Central MP Ekwe Ethuro claimed that residents were fleeing the area over fears the military had been deployed to intimidate and harm them.

They said President Kibaki’s decision to order military deployment following the killing of over 40 officers in the area was done without approval of the National Assembly as required by the Constitution.
