MP says Parliament won't pass referendum motion

12 July 2014, 11:23 James Kabotia

Laikipia - Laikipia East MP Anthony Mutahi has said if the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) tables a national referendum motion in Parliament, it will be rejected.

Speaking at Withare primary school Mutahi condemned the opposition for calling for a referendum just one year after the elections noting that the country can not be subjected to election mood all the time.

“Time for elections is  long gone and Kenyans who pay taxes want the country to be peaceful so that they can continue running their businesses as usual,” he said.

He urged CORD leaders to be ready for a better referendum in 2017 elections instead of wasting time calling for changes in the Constitution.  

The legislator noted that Kenyans are enlightened and they do not want to be plunged in political circus as they build the nation.

He cited that the Constitution allows a referendum to be passed through Parliament and they are ready to reject it.

Mutahi also lashed out at lawyers in the CORD coalition for misleading the coalition leader in interpreting the constitution.
