Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei have today said he is ready to send a letter to the senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka asking him to convene a special discussion on the issue of National security.
This happens after the General Service Unit (GSU) officers guarding Deputy President William Ruto's official residence in Karen, Nairobi were removed and replaced by Administration Police officers.
Speaking today in Nandi County Cherargei wants the senate to quickly summon, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, The Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua and Head of GSU Commandant Douglas Kanji and Head of Presidential Escort Unit to actually shed more light on why they downgraded Ruto’s security.
“Article 238P states that the national security must be accountable to Parliament and therefore as per the standing orders of senate and having the required quorum, I will be noting to the speaker tomorrow morning (Monday, August 30) to summon relevant leaders of agencies,” Cherargei said.
