Jubilee governors dismiss push for referendum

29 August 2013, 10:12 Wilshere

Nakuru - Six governors from Rift Valley on Wednesday evening met in Nakuru County where they said they are not supporting the referendum push by CORD leaders.

The six from Uasin Gishu, Elgeyo, Narok, West Pokot, Baringo and Nakuru county said that the CORD governors have an ill motive over the referendum calls.

In a meeting which was convened by the Nakuru governor Kinuthia Mbugua, the governors said leaders allied to CORD were misleading the public over the referendum saying they only want to destabilize the country.

Uasin Gishu county governor Jackson Mandago said that CORD leaders have added their own agenda to the one they had agreed on when they were calling the referendum.

“At the beginning we had agreed both Jubilee governors and CORD governors that we were only pushing for three issues but so far they have hijacked the entire process,” he said

He added that leaders allied to CORD have started politicizing the process and thus should be ignored by Kenyans.

The governors maintained that they will continue engaging the central government in talks for the increase of county funds to more than 40 percent but they will not be push for referendum.

“Referendum issue has been become partisan and that’s why we felt it will be good if we suspend at the moment the push for referendum,” said Mandago.

At the same time the governors said that Jubilee governors are not divided over the matter and that they remain focus in developing the counties.

They further said that the political season was over and that it will be wise if Kenyans are not plunged into another polls.
