The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

Tetu MP Ndung’u Gethenji has wel­comed the cur­few im­posed in Man­dera af­ter last Mon­day’s ter­ror at­tack. The Na­tional Assem­bly De­fence and For­eign Re­la­tions Com­mit­tee chair­man said the night-to-dawn cur­few will help re­store or­der, as se­cu­rity teams will have enough op­por­tu­nity to nab crim­i­nals and en­sure jus­tice to vic­tims. Gethenji spoke on Sun­day in Mu­tathiIni vil­lage in his con­stituency af­ter con­dol­ing with the fam­ily of Fran­cis Makumi, 53, who was killed in the at­tack. Makumi had re­lo­cated from quar­ries in Ki­ganjo, Ny­eri county, where he pre­vi­ously worked, to Man­dera, where earn­ings are higher. Ny­eri county has lost more than 40 peo­ple in the past two years in ter­ror at­tacks in North­east­ern. Gethenji crit­i­cised Man­dera lead­ers and res­i­dents for reg­u­lar ter­ror at­tacks tar­get­ing non-res­i­dents. He called for thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tions. The lat­est at­tack left 12 peo­ple dead.
