Nakuru lobby group to counter M4M

30 August 2013, 16:06 Wilshere

Nakuru - A lobby group in Nakuru town has launched a campaign in the county for collecting 1milion signatures to counter March 4 Movement from amending article 138 of constitution.

The CEO for Foundation for Peace and Development (FPD) Simon Mbugua said that M4M calls for referendum is untimely and that Kenyans are not ready for another polls.

“We want to act under public interest because M4M push for a new referendum is not right ands that’s we are going to collect one million signatures to stop them” he said

Speaking during a press briefing in Nakuru on Friday, Mbugua said that the constitution was still on the implementation stages and that M4M should give the new administration time to do its work.

He also said that, calling for a new referendum will plunge the country into unnecessary political mood which is not right at the moment.

“Kenyans just elected the new government a few months ago and they are just implementing the new constitution…we should give the government time,” he said.

Mbugua said that section 258 of the constitution has outlined that any group or an individual can institute proceedings if the constitution is threatened.

The head of the lobby group took issues with CORD saying the 2010 constitution was voted in by the majority and that it is pointless to start mobilizing the public against the constitution.

“We are mobilizing the public because we feel our constitution might be under threat and that is why we have to protect it,” he said.

The Foundation for Peace Development CEO said that they are also going to be working closely with other NGOs in the country.

The lobby group is expected to tour all the 11 sub-counties in Nakuru before proceeding to other counties in the country.
