CORD leaders welcome Ruto referendum offer

06 October 2014, 13:29 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leaders have welcomed the statement by Council of Governors chairman Isaac Ruto that he might merge their respective referendum pledges.

Ruto said Sunday that he would not mind merging his 'Pesa Mashinani' referendum push with that of CORD's 'Okoa Kenya'.

He insisted that the two campaigns both sought to enhance the lives of Kenyans and that he would seek the support of the CORD team if his efforts to ensure government increased funds for devolution through dialogue failed.

CORD Senators James Orengo and Bonny Khalwale welcomed the impending move, saying it was about time Kenyans got what they truly deserve.

" We say that the referendum push is for the benefit of Kenyans and that is what we should tell those against it. At the end of the day, Kenyans will benefit, Orengo said.

Khalwale on his part says that Kenyans deserve the better than what they are currently getting.

" Kenyans deserve better. That is why the referendum is needed. We need assurance that devolution will not be frustrated and because there is none, we will push through with devolution, he said.

Ruto is under pressure from members of his parent URP party to drop the referendum plea.

He has agreed to dialogue with the government but has said that he will take up the referendum campaign again if he is frustrated.
