Mwingi, 16TH FEBRUARY, 2017: Mwingi central MP Dr. Gideon Mulyungi has called upon the jubilee government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta to take the lead in obeying orders of the courts, instead of trying to take this country back to dictatorial rule.
Speaking following a meeting with local leaders from across his constituency at Mwingi town, Dr Mulyungi said that actions by the government to disobey orders given by Kenyan Courts after clamp down of four TV Stations and after deportation of Miguna Miguna which the high court later quashed, is setting the wrong precedence for the country.
The sentiments by the Mwingi central MP comes after the Chair of the Jubilee party Raphael Tuju wrote a letter to the judiciary protesting what he termed as a lot of biasness in its undertakings especially in its handling of cases affecting the opposition and the Jubilee government.
“Continued attempts by top government officials to undermine the rule of law by disobeying orders issued by Kenyan courts, is likely to set the wrong precedence in the country and in future Kenyans may imitate the behaviour. This might lead the nation into anarchy,” pointed out Dr. Mulyungi.
The legislator also added that top leadership in government ought to fully respect the rule of law, if they want the citizens to adhere to it.
Dr Mulyungi said the events which ensued swearing in of opposition leader Raila Odinga have left opposition leaders fearing for their lives, this is after their security details and firearms were withdrawn and some people who participated in the event arrested and charged.
