Referendum push ill-advised

16 September 2013, 15:31 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nominated members of the Nakuru County assembly have criticised those pushing for a referendum terming the move as ill-advised.

The MCAs said that it was high time that leaders in the political arena focus on how to grow the economy of the country.

Addressing the media in Nakuru on Monday, the MCAs said that it would be a waste of time and money to conduct a referendum at a time when Kenya’s leaders are facing trial at ICC.

Led by MCA, Janet Mucheru, they said that the Jubilee government has shown interest in increasing allocation to the County governments and it would be unfair for governors to demand more cash before exhausting what has been allocated to them.

“Why should we be asking for referendum when the Uhuru Kenyatta administration is doing its work? It's absolutely absurd,” Mucheru said. 

She also noted that they will support the government to ensure that services are rendered to the public in line with the Jubilee manifesto, adding that Kenyans expect all leaders to fulfill what they promised during the campaign and that it would be odd to start pushing for a referendum at this moment.

“This should be the time when leaders are fulfilling the promises we made to Kenyans but not politics," she said.
