National Security Failure: Saitoti, Iteere and Gichangi Must take Responsibility and Resign

May 28th, 2012/….We call upon President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga to relieve the Internal Security Minister Prof George Saitoti, Police Commission Mathew Iteere and Director-General National Intelligence Service Michael Gichangi off their public duties as officers in charge of national security. They have proved unpardonably ineffective and inefficient in detecting and preventing consistent attacks directed at Kenyan people by militant and other opportunistic groups.

It is only reasonable that these three people bestowed with public duty of protecting and guaranteeing public of security take responsibility and resign for the horrendous performance of security organs under their command. We are urging the Kenya Parliament to hold a special session and review the status of the national security including discussing the performance of the officers responsible and whether they can be trusted adequately guarantee Kenyan people their security outside usual assurances.  

There is no doubt the three cannot manage with due diligence and efficacy the enormous security challenges facing the country in the days ahead. They are more known to reactionary responses rather than detection and prevention of crimes from happening.

 In any responsible and civilized society, those in power are held accountable whenever security lapses and death of citizens happen due to negligence or incompetence of security institutions.  Unfortunately, several Kenyans have lost their dear lives and yet no one has stepped down in the face of rising lawlessness and unrelenting attacks directed at civilian. It is time that those at the top take their moral responsibilities and step down.
