Ignore referendum calls, MP urges residents

18 August 2014, 12:49 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The referendum push by governors and the opposition should be ignored because it is meant to distract government from its development agenda, Tetu MP Ndung’u Gethenji has said.

Gethenji urged his constituents not to sign for the calls saying it would be of no benefit to the residents.

Speaking on Sunday at his Constituency, the MP added that the quest for more money by governors did not hold water as Parliament has already approved more money than they were pushing for.

“The fact of the matter is that money meant for the counties is lying in the National Treasury either because the County governments have been unable to absorb the money or cannot account for what had been released earlier,” said Gethenji.

While the governors were calling for the referendum to demand 40 percent county revenue,yet Parliament voted for counties was already 43 percent.

“The real agenda in the referendum push is a power game by the governors following the enactment of laws that appear to reduce their control of devolved funds,” he said.
