The High Court in Nairobi has ordered the government to reinstate MPs gun and their security.

The court issued temporary orders pending hearing and determination of the suit the MPs filed.

The security detail was withdrawn on January 30 when 141 NASA MPs went to swear in Raila Odinga as People President of Kenya.

Despite warning that this was an illegal and treasonous act, the NASA legislators went ahead in utter defiance of the state directive and as such their security was withdrawn.

Critics argue that the legislators swore to recognise Mr Odinga as their “validly elected president” and as such confusion rages on who then should provide them with security.

Justice Roselyne Aburili also certified the matter as urgent and directed the MPs to serve the suit to all respondents.

They were also directed to appear before court in two week’s time for inter-parties hearing.

On January 30, police officers attached to the legislators’ detail received oral communication requiring them to return to their respective stations.
