Thika Town MP Alice Wambui Ng'ang'a has supported President Uhuru Kenyatta's decision to deploy the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) to troubled North Rift parts of Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet, Pokot, Turkana and Laikipia counties arguing that the move was long overdue.

Speaking after attending a Prize Giving Day at Chania Boys High School on Friday, Hon. Alice said that those perpetrating the violence in Baringo had now gone overboard by targeting women and children.

“It is quite sad that we are losing so many lives and property yet the perpetrators have continually ignored the government’s call for a ceasefire. Recently they killed a parliamentary aspirant and a sitting MCA. We cannot have this in a democratic country. They need now to be taught a lesson,” said Alice angrily.

She hoped that law and order will have been restored in the next few days adding that the authorities should arrest and convict anyone who would be found culpable regardless of their status in the society.

“People holding illegal arms have continued to threaten the lives of Kenyans. This deployment will assist in disarmament and surrender of illegally held arms,” she said.

Furthermore, Hon. Alice supported the call to review downwards the salaries of elected leaders as this would set some good precedence to the other sectors of the Kenyan workforce. She also reckoned that time was ripe for Kenyans to re-look at the 2010 Constitution for necessary amendments to rectify various anomalies and hiccups that were hindering proper governance and implementation of our new laws.

“It is only a fool who doesn’t reconsider their decisions. The next parliament should prioritise constitutional amendments to rectify some of the impediments that are affecting proper governance.  

After August 8, we need to ask ‘Wanjiku’ if this constitution is serving her right. If it calls for a referendum, so be it,” said the MP.

Otherwise, the legislator said she was ready for the polls and was very confident of re-election for a second term. She called on all Thika residents to turn up in numbers for the Jubilee nominations next month saying that it was their only avenue to exercise their democratic right of choosing their leaders.

During her tour of Chania Boys’ High School, Hon. Alice commissioned the foundation stone for the construction of the school’s new Library Complex and administration block which has been jointly funded by the parents and the Thika CDF.
