Governors open to dialogue but ready for referendum

24 October 2014, 11:17 William Korir

Nairobi - Governors are open to dialogue but ready to go the referendum way to push for more funds for devolution.

Council of Governors chairman Isaac Ruto says that they are approaching other ways of having funds for devolution increased but are also ready to go for a referendum if need be.

He says that they are on the way to having a bill in parliament presented that will help increase funds for devolution as well as still pushing for talks with government to avoid a referendum.

But if need be, they will go the referendum route.

" We are ready for anything. We are looking at other means but ready for a referendum," he said Friday.

" The bill will help the government in the sense that it can negotiate and also we can avoid the sticking point of a referendum, but it must not be seen as a surrender tactic," he added.

The bill is expected to be presented in parliament next week and will amend the threshold given by law on funds required for devolution.

A referendum by Governors will see funds increased to 45% of national revenue, a move that government is looking to avoid at all costs.

Other Governors for the negotiation route are Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and his Machakos counterpart Alfred Mutua who both feel that a referendum is the last resort.

" Let us look at other means including parliament and the executive before we decide on a referendum," Kidero has said severally despite being a part of the CORD coalition which also supports a referendum vote.
