Nyeri leaders oppose the amendment of elective laws

25 June 2012, 12:00 Joseph Mkubwa

Three Nyeri leaders have strongly opposed the move by MPs of amending laws which allows presidential candidates to vie for other seats.

Former cabinet minister Chris Murungaru, Nyeri town parliamentary aspirants Duncan Maina and Samuel Wamaathai said the move was ill advised saying the voter will still reject them if they vie for other seats after losing the earlier ones.

Murungaru who is the DP Secretary General said they will indeed move to court to ensure that such laws will not apply in the country since majority of Kenyans passed the constitution during the referendum.

Speaking during the burial of Caroline Nyambura Kiama, 22 at Kiamuiru village in Nyeri County, the leaders told the presidential candidates who know they are not capable should stay away from the elections.

They also opposed the move by MPs who amended the Political Parties Act.

“Majority of us wanted presidential system of governance and so the amendment is not good. We shall move to court to ensure the amendment is null and void,” said the former Kieni MP.

Similar sentiments were made by Maina and Wamathai who said the back will stop with the voters who will vote them out.

Maina said if the law is passed, Kenyans should vote out all the 210 MPs in the August House.
