Martha Karua: Politicians do not Need Permission to Hold Meetings

Former Gichugu Legislator Martha Karua has on Tuesday disagreed with the latest orders by the Ministry of Interior that Politicians must notify the Police to seek authorization to hold meetings, issuing fresh details.

Martha Karua has informed that leaders should issue directives as per the 2010 constitution but not to verbally issue declarations and turning them to laws.

According to Karua, she has asserted that Politicians do not require permission to hold meetings and neither are they supposed to report to the police.

"We must tell the police & Uhuru administration that no Cabinet, Technical or Security Committee can amend the Constitution through declarations. Politicians do not need permission to hold meetings. They merely notify the police," Martha Karua has asserted.

The former Gichugu Member of Parliament has continued to add that even if laws are formulated then the police should ensure that they are applied to all quotas without prejudice.

Ex-MP Karua has continued to add that recently a double standard in the appliance of the law have been witnessed whereby section of politicians are being favoured terming the move as an abuse of the law.

"There are double standards in the application of the law where police are facilitating meetings by those aligned to the President & his BBI partner while disrupting those perceived to be against BBI arrangement. This is an abuse of the law," Martha Karua has added.
