NAIROBI, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday signed into law the new Security Amendment Act 2014 that is expected to enhance the fight against terrorists in the East African nation.
In a televised address to the nation Cheap Tottenham Hotspur Jersey , Kenyatta called on Kenyans to read the controversial law and familiarize with it to know their rights in securing the country, which faces increased terror attacks from Al-Shabaab militants.
Kenyatta expressed confidence that the new security law which will empower security networks did not violate the Bill of Rights in the Constitution as claimed by its critics.
"I am confident that you will find that there is nothing in this law that goes against the Bill of Rights or any provision of the constitution. Its intent is one: to protect the lives and property of all citizens," he said.
"All concerns raised by different stakeholders have been addressed by the relevant parliamentary committees," Kenyatta said after signing the Security Amendments Bill into law in Nairobi.
He emphasized that the new law, which was passed by Parliament amid commotion on Thursday Cheap Sevilla Jersey , will not infringe on the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, and dismissed critics to it, saying that enough consultation and public participation took place before the Bill was presented to Parliament.
The Kenyan leader said the anti-terror law does not violate any other chapter of the constitution, but was intended to secure Kenyans against terrorism and other forms of crime.
He said the counter-terrorism law also gives security actors a firm institutional framework and synergy to fight terrorism and other emerging crimes such as radicalization of the youth, poaching and trafficking Cheap Real Madrid Jersey , which he says calls for improved capacity by the government.
The President said the new law improves the capacity of the security agencies to detect, deter and disrupt threats to national security.
"For the first time, we now have a law that focuses on prevention and disruption of threats. Further, the law allows for the use of technology in processing and advancing the ability for successful prosecution of suspects," he said.
The president urged Kenyans to remain vigilant and cooperate with authorities by liaising with the security apparatus in securing the nation.
He said Kenyans should support the government's efforts in addressing insecurity through the implementation of the law Cheap Paris Saint-Germain Jersey , noting that the country is still vulnerable to terror attacks.
"This synergy is cascaded from the highest level to the lowest level through the national government security structures," he said.
The President said the law also raises the threshold for public and state officers who are charged with the responsibility of protecting Kenya and its people, as it provides for heavy penalties for any transgression
"The raised threshold was necessary because of the lack of integrity and its role in compromising national security," he added.
Kenyatta defended the new legislation, which Cheap Manchester United Jersey , he said, will address the administrative loopholes that have furthered terror activities, adding that security organs are being restructured and penalties for those who contribute to terrorism stipulated.
"Its intent is one, just one, to protect the lives and property of all the citizens of this republic Cheap Manchester City Jersey ," he said, adding that the new anti-terror law will also improve the operational effectiveness of the new security law.
