Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto has urged Kenyans to shun the referendum plea by CORD leader Raila Odinga, saying he is causing distraction.
Speaking Sunday during a church service in Kasarani, Ruto labelled Raila a distraction and called on Kenyans to not fall for his bluff.
" The constitution is new and was propagated by the same persons who are now calling for its destruction. They are the same ones who have now decided it is no longer good enough, he said.
He urged Kenyans to shun is advances, calling on the calls for a referendum as a personal project that would only benefit the former Prime Minister.
" The referendum is about remaining relevant. It is purely about personal gain. Do not fall for it, he added.
The Okoa Kenya referendum initiative has already reached the 1 million signature mark according to the CORD team as it seeks to make changes to the constitution to make amendments to certain aspects deemed not good enough for Kenyans.
