Hassan Kaps Fungaroo, Obongi County MP, says the MPs want the ministers to also give their position on the brutal beating of police, which he says has become a frequent occurrence while dispersing crowds.
Officials from the Ministry of Internal Affairs have today been kicked out of a parliamentary committee.
The officials, led by the Undersecretary, Aggrey Wunyi had appeared before the Defence and Internal Affairs committee to discuss the role of the ministry in running affairs in the country.
Ministers Jeje Odong and his junior, Obiga Kania were absent. The ministers were expected to give a brief on the current affairs within the Police force
, in line with recent bashing over the brutal manner in which it handled opposition supporters last month.
Judith Nabakooba, committee chairperson says members wanted the ministers and permanent secretary, as the accounting officers, to give a brief on the current security situation within the country, as well as their challenges in their line of duty.
