The Members of Parliament in Kenya take the power to levy laws “after the approval of Parliament” and nobody else.

Kenya Parliament

There are the questions in this day and age where the power of men is unstoppable. Where the Men and Woman in Parliaments use their opportunity to take shortcuts and ways to generate more power if possible! This is what has happen today in the Kenyan Parliament as they want to secure their power and their will to make laws with their approval and nobody else.

The initial act of the amendment is setting the precedence for the approval rating and the grander gesture of the Parliament as they will have deciding effect of the lawful assembly. Not anybody else, as the Parliament can act on their own and the chambers of the Parliament decide the laws and levy them.

Here is the original text from the 2010 Constitution:

“(6) Any treaty or convention ratified by Kenya shall form part of the law of Kenya under this Constitution” (Constitution 2010 Kenya).

The Purpose:

“The Bill proposes to amend Article 2(6) of the Constitution in order to ensure that both Houses of Parliament are involved in the treaty and convention making process, so that all treaties and conventions would only become law after approval by both Houses of Parliament” (Constitution Amendment Bill 2015).

The Actual Amendment:

“Amendment of Article 2 of the Constitution: Article 2 of the Constitution is amended in clause (6) by inserting the words ―”after the approval of Parliament” at the end of the clause” (Constitution Amendment Bill 2015).

So after the vote in Parliament the Constitution will say something else, which gives certain powers to the people, the representative and so on; that is why the Constitution is set the standard of what country should have as a national level of law and justice. That is what a constitution does. So today there become a law into action made by the Representative, Members of Parliament decide to give themselves more power. As this simple added sentence into the constitution. As with the amendment will say this:

“(6) Any treaty or convention ratified by Kenya shall form part of the law of Kenya under this Constitution after the approval of Parliament”.

So there you have it. What the Parliament wants to succeed doing in own powers and nobody else. They can approve laws without anybody else through Parliament. That gives the Members of Parliament the rights to carte blanche to approve the bills into law. So the Modus Operandi will be that the MPs can through approval get it ratified into law. That is really securing POWER of the MPs and nobody else, as the approval is given them power over the judiciary and the Parliament can therefore override the “experts” on laws as they can make it on their own behest. Seems like something CS Nkaissery who likes all the power in his hands. Though has not the imprint on this as the Committee that was set-up fixed this one and other change to the law; this is one added sentence, but the law entitled lots of more as the amendments is 65 pages long. So if you want to study the changes you should. Peace.

Besigye comments on on Atiak skirmishes with police (Youtube-Clip)

Atiak 23.12.15

Atiak in Amuru was a war zone yesterday evening. Some of the lethal apparatus used can be seen here. Defiance all the way. Besigye has revisited this place today morning to check on the victims of state brutality.

The spirit of Defiance has led Besigye back to Atiak in Amuru district this morning where he was teargased along his supporters who had gathered to see him as he drove to Adjumani. Time check 8:00am (as many of u still enjoyed your beds) and Besigye was already addressing the victims of state repression! He is now on the way back to Adjumani. True commander never leaves the injured unattended to.

Besigye said “Don’t fear those police and their guns. Those guns will never defeat people power. If you are determined, you can even overrun that police station and force them to surrender”.

On Social media a witness said this about yesterdays actions in Atiak:

Heavily armed Police lawlessly dispursed hundreds of KB suporters in Atiak, who where standing by the road side junction waving at KB as his convoy were heading to Adjumani. A big shame to Amuru DPC, Ahimbisime whom I saw firing dozens of live bullets at civilians and several cannistars of tear gas that spreaded at a square of over 1KM.

Peace

Press Release: (RSA) Parliament Rejects Recent Reports About Precautionary Suspensions (07.09.2015)

ZADeraildImage

Parliament, Monday, 07 September 2015 – Parliament notes and strongly rejects various newspaper reports related to the precautionary suspension of the senior managers in Parliamentary Protection Services, as a desperate attempt to sensationalise and dramatize a management and labour process that is aimed at stabilising security arrangements in Parliament.

Parliament notes that these actions are aimed at damaging the image of the institution, its management and the Parliament Protection Services by way of engaging in unbecoming ‘politiking,’ against the integrity of the institution. Parliament will not be drawn into this type of engagement because it lacks integrity.

Parliament stands by its previous statement that the precautionary suspension is without prejudice, it is put in place to allow for an independent investigation to take place without any negative influence.

Parliament wishes to reiterate that it is precisely for such reasons as demonstrated by the unprofessional behaviour of some staff members that it wishes to protect the integrity of the process from those who seek to influence and direct the outcomes of this process in a manner that is not consistent with our policies and general professional conduct. Through such utterances in the media, any official is in direct violation of the terms of Parliament policies regarding the Code of Ethics and Conduct for Employees and the Media policy of Parliament, which are very clear on the rules of staff engagement with the media. Parliament notes the brazen disregard for organisation processes, authority and policies in regards to speaking with the media.

Parliament urges all involved to allow the due process of Parliament to take place without interference and attempts to influence the process or its outcomes. To this end, Parliament has engaged with the suspended employees to take the process forward as quickly and smoothly as possible and has not received cooperation in this regard.

Parliament will not respond to each and every utterance as covered by recent media reports.

Parliament notes that its security environment has progressed positively towards stabilisation and it is working hard to ensure a more sustainable solution.
