MP reveals Jubilee’s plan to counter referendum push
19 August 2014, 11:48
Nyeri - A Jubilee MP has hinted that the ruling coalition will include own questions in the referendum with a view of frustrating the entire process.
Kieni Member of Parliament, Kanini Kega has disclosed that if governors and the opposition continue pressing for a referendum, then Jubilee will have to include its questions that would frustrate both the opposition and governors.
One of the questions Jubilee plans to front is whether Kenyans want devolved funds send directly to the wards instead of channeling them to the county governments.
Kega explained that most governors had not properly accounted for the funds they received last year yet they are already asking for more.
Recently, the Council of Governors said they will demand for more county funds through a referendum.
Kega added that Jubilee will also seek to set the maximum age of a presidential candidate as 65 years.
The third way of countering the quest, Kega said, would be by asking whether the country really needs Senators at national representation.
According to Kega, the Senate is a House with fewer duties and that was the reason most of them were being spotted in political rallies.
