125 Jubilee MPs want referendum

19 November 2015, 17:07 William Korir

Nairobi - 125 Jubilee legislators have backed the need for a referendum to take place together with the 2017 General Elections.

The legislators say that they want funds at County Government level raised to 46% of national revenue, as well as introduce measures to ensure that corruption is dealt with at God speed.

Led by Tiaty MP Asman Kamama, the MPs said that the 20% flaw in the current Constitution must be taken care of and that if it means going the referendum way, then so be it.

He said that the referendum would be referred to as the 'Boresha Katiba' initiative.

They also stated that they would seek 3 million signatures to ensure that it is a popular referendum.

" We want to change the Constitution and ensure it is full proof for Kenyans and we will do it and are determined," Kamama said Thursday.

He also stated that there would be consultations with CORD MPs to have the referendum a national move and not political.

" This is a national document and so the efforts will reflect that. We want MPs to have their input without the interference of national leaders," he added.

Kamama also stated that there would likely be no need to have President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy William Ruto take part in the referendum plans.

" This is not an executive issue. We are doing this as MPs," he added.

CORD has its own Okoa Kenya initiative which is similar to the Jubilee one. CORD has already collected 1.4 million signatures in the initiative.
