Kalembe, Too oppose calls for referendum

14 September 2014, 10:23 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Two former MPs, Kalembe Ndile and Mark Too have opposed calls for a referendum.

The two dismissed referendum push by governors and the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) stating that the proposers were not genuine.

Speaking in Nyeri, Kalembe said there was no need for plebiscite because it would put the country back to the electioneering mood and derail development.

Kalembe lashed out at governors saying that they were not genuine while asking for more money into the counties.

He claimed that in the last financial year most county governments returned huge amounts of money to the treasury which was unutilized.

“Referendum pushers should know that people are not fools. Makueni County returned KES 1.3 billion to the treasury while Kilifi governor built his house at a cost of KES 150 million,” claimed the former Kibwezi MP.

He however urged the governors to first work with the amounts they have to justify that more money was needed at counties.

His colleague, Mark Too said referendum would be waste of time and the campaigners should realize that the constituents are economically busy.

While echoing Kalembe’s sentiments, Too said governors must be accountable of every coin managed by their governments.

“If they do not want to be accountable they should then go to jail and stop blackmailing people,” said Too.
