The National Assembly has bowed to public pressure and is considering radical changes which include reconstituting the Committee on National Security and Administration.
Majority Leader Aden Duale said Kamama was a stumbling block in Jubilee quest to provide security and it was time for him to pack and go.
“Jubilee is committed to dealing with insecurity in affected parts of this country. That is why we want Kamama to step aside for a reshuffle in the Security committee in the next two weeks. We also know there have been two attempts to have him step aside but it failed.” The vocal leader said.
Duale’s remarks come shortly after President Uhuru state of the Nation address where he declared his administration will no longer tolerate blatant violation of people’s rights caused by insecurity and violence in the form of banditry in parts of the North Rift region and Laikipia.
“This administration will use all means at its disposal to pursue and bring to justice all those involved in causing this mayhem. I warn politicians in the affected areas to stop incitement and any form of violence. You will be held to account,” Uhuru said.
President Uhuru first radical changes come yesterday after he announced the deployment of the Kenya Defence Force (KDF) soldiers in the volatile North Rift region to restore security.
The soldiers will be deployed in Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet, West Pokot and Laikipia all which have been declared disturbed regions to flush out bandits who have been attacking residents in the area.
“Today we held a session as the National Security Council and agreed to authorize the Kenya Defence Forces to immediately get in and lend support to the National Police in terms of manpower and equipment so as to restore security and deal with those who continue to threaten the lives of Kenyans,” Kenyatta stated.
North Rift lawmakers, including Baringo Senator Gideon Moi have been calling for Kamama to step aside led for allegedly using his powers to interfere with the police operation in the volatile region.
Kamama is suspected to have had a hand in the killing of his rival, parliamentary aspirant Simon Kitambaa commonly known as pepe who was shot dead alongside Loyamorok Member of County Assembly, Frederick Kibet Cheretei on February at Alfa bar and restaurant in Marigat town.
Suspicion against Kamama may have arisen since Pepea was going to face off with him in the Jubilee Party primaries furthermore according friends of the deceased, Pepee had just returned from Nairobi where JP had summoned him over a complaint lodged by Kamama regarding distribution of party cards.
