CORD maintains hard line on call for referendum

16 July 2014, 16:50

Busia - Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula Tuesday said the Cord coalition will soon tell Kenyans the main reason as to why they are pushing for a national referendum.

Speaking in Trans Nzoia County during the homecoming ceremony of the area MCA Emmanuel Waswa, he said that the call for referendum is paramount in ensuring that Kenyans are served better and enjoy the fruits of devolution.

He said that the country was facing serious governance challenges that can only be solved through a referendum, which politicians allied to Jubilee government have been dismissing.

“We have completed the issues and it will only take one week for us to get 1 million signatures,” he said.

He reiterated that they will not again sit with the government for talks after the dismissal of their demand.

He said that sovereign power belongs to Kenyans saying that leaders are just trustees, and thus they should not be hindered from exercising their constitutional rights.

"Counties need more funds and therefore budget allocation to the counties should be increased for more projects to be rolled out at grassroot level," he said.

According to Wetang'ula, the national government remains with a huge amount of money which could be channeled to counties.

“We want an inclusive government that will serve all people,” he said.
