Nakuru Majority Leader affirms their support for referendum

11 August 2014, 15:33 Wilshere

Nakuru - Leader of Majority in the Nakuru Assembly, Simon Wanyoike has said that they are fully supporting the governors' push for a referendum in bid to increase county funds.

Wanyoike said that county governments deserve to get the 45 percent funding so as to help devolution take place in the country.

“We are fully supporting our governors in their push for referendum because county governments need money to run projects,” he said.

Speaking to the media at county assembly chambers Monday morning, Wanyoike added that county governments need to be fully funded to help realise the agenda of Jubilee government.

He said that the push for referendum should not in anyway be viewed by Kenyans as MCAs' support for CORD's call for the same.

“Members of County Assemblies should not be thought as supporting CORD in their push for referendum because we have our own different agenda,” he said.

However, Wanyoike said that should President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto agree to the demands of the governors, they will not be pushing for the referendum.

He said that it was high time that the national government started working closely with the county governments to help avert any crises that might arise on the issue of funds.

“President Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto should listen to the demands of our governors because all we want is money to propel projects at the grassroots level,” he said.  

At the same time, Wanyoike urged Kenyans to remain united amidst the calls for referendum.
