URP will not punish pro referendum leaders

19 September 2014, 14:14 William Korir

Nairobi - The United Republican Party URP will not punish those that are for a proposed referendum against party policy.

The party has had the highest number of dissenters on the planned referendum from the ruling coalition, with the Council of Governors chairman Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto leading the planned charge n a referendum.

Other key leaders have also supported the charge, which is against party leader DP William Ruto's wishes.

There have been calls for the leaders to resign from their positions as well as others saying they should be punished for the move but the party says that at the moment, such proceedings have not been instituted.

Secretary General Fred Muteti says that the party was not planning to punish those pushing for the planned referendum and added that there would not be any action taken.

" There is no action planned. That is the current party stand, he said.

" Look, we are a democratic party and at times there will be different views on many matters. That does not mean that action will be taken on those with differing opinions, he added.

With DP Ruto set to tour the North Rift this weekend to deal with the referendum matter with a series of meetings and rallies, dialogue will be taken as a mode of solving the issue at hand.

" Dialogue will be the way. If we want to agree on such a matter, we have to talk to each other and that is what the DP will initiate, a source at the party said on the visit.

Bomet Governor Ruto has already said that he will not relent on the chase for a referendum which will seek to see funds allocated to devolution raised to 45% of national spending up from 15%.

" This is a chase for the people by the people. We have to understand that and respect it," he said.
