MP calls for constitutional amendment to strip Governors of their title

03 January 2016, 08:09 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Gichugu MP, Njogu Barua has embarked on a crusade to strip governors of their title by proposing they be referred to as County Administrators.

Barua claimed that the title ‘Governor’ was creating confusion and another center of power among the public.

“Some governors behave as though they are equals to the Head of State and to avoid this confusion, I am proposing we do away with their titles and simply address them as County Administrators,” said Barua.

Barua also said only economic devolution should take place and leave alone political and security devolution due to the sensitivity of the two sectors.

Speaking Saturday at Kianyaga market during The National Alliance (TNA) leaders meeting, Barua said Parliament was not opposed to a referendum to address faults in the constitution.

He however noted that some sections could be easily amended through Parliament thereby saving the tax payers money.

“In case we have a referendum to address the contentious parts of the constitution, the vote should be taken simultaneously with the forthcoming general elections so as to cut on costs since the contentious sections do not pose any crisis in the country,’’ Barua said.
