Raila: Uhuru lying to Kenyans on devolution

08 September 2014, 16:40 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says that president Uhuru Kenyatta should not lie to Kenyans about the amount of money the government is handing out for devolution.

The CORD leader was reacting to president Kenyatta's threat to Jubilee supported Governors to quit if they are keen on following up referendum business.

Odinga said that reports that the government has allocated 46% of government budget to devolution are false and they should tell Kenyans the truth.

" They are saying 46 per cent has been sent there already but forty-six per cent of which budget? They are using figures of 2009 to lie to Kenyans. If you take the current budgetary allocation, it’s just 12 per cent of the budget,"  he said.

On the matter of threats to Governors, Raila said that Governors are elected by the people and that the president has no right to ask them to resign.

" Governors are elected by the people and it is out of order for the president to threaten them with resignation. They are representing the people and their wishes and the president must respect that", he added.

On referendum and the pace picked up, Raila says that it will be difficult to stop it.

" This is like a train or like El Nino. When it starts it is difficult to stop. No one will stop it. No one, he added.

CORD's Okoa Kenya referendum campaign is looking to collect 5 million signatures to help it rise to the occasion and make changes to the constitution.
