Kuto called out the Mp and urged called for security aparatus to act with speed and take action.

” We wish to condemn the careless, precambrian and pedestrian action by Salasya in the strongest terms possible. He is a disgrace to this Nation. He has lowered the value of the office that he occupies. It’s in the public domain that a report has since been made and the DCI is investigating the same. Given the public interest involved, we call upon the relevant agencies to speed up the investigations,” said Kuto.

He added, “The said gentleman should be arrested forthwith to face the full force of the law. Such entities are not good for the society.The Kenya Magistrates and Judges Association has since appointed an advocate of repute to represent it. He has instructions for the culprit to be put behind bars and be prosecuted with diligence, ” Kuto said.

The KMJA president added that some its officials have been injured and killed in previous incidents hence the need to stop the vice.

” This is not an isolated incident. Many of our members have been harmed and killed in line of duty while others have had to resign. Therefore, an attack on anyone of us is an attack on all of us. We call upon every Kenyan to frown upon such incidences.We hope that the Government of Kenya, through its agencies, including the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, will understand our daily cries for provision of security to our members, ” he said
