Nairobi - Bungoma Governor Ken Lusaka is unwilling to state where he stands on the planned referendum by Governors.
Lusaka, who has often sided with the Jubilee coalition in many matters, was unwilling to state his stand on the referendum.
Most Governors under the Jubilee umbrella have dropped their interest in the referendum, saying they will seek other ways to improve funding to Counties.
Lusaka says that his main mission is to ensure that funding to Counties increases.
" My mission is to ensure that Counties get more cash. That is what we all want at the end of the day, he said.
" We may not agree in the method but as long as we have a situation where Counties get the added money then I will be happy, he added.
CORD principal Moses Wetangula hails from Bungoma and Lusaka said that he knows they have started referendum campaigns in the County.
" I know that they (CORD) are campaigning in Bungoma, which is their right, as long as they do not mis-inform the public.
So far, close to 18 Governors have stated they will not support the referendum and will seek legislative means to clamour for more funds.
