Blow to RAILA as entire Gusii region dump him for RUTO-We will never support referendum to create jobs for him

Friday October 19, 2018-Deputy President William Ruto has received a big boost in his opposition to the looming referendum being pushed by his political nemesis and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

This is after MPs from Gusiiland threw their weight behind him, accusing Raila of selfish interest in his referendum push.

Speaking in Suneka Catholic Church, Kisii County, the MPs said the current Constitution had already burdened Kenyans with a huge wage bill and amending the supreme law to create other offices was illogical.

Led by Kitutu Chache MP Richard Onyonka, the MPs said  it would be wise for Kenyans to be told exactly what was the motive for amending the Constitution was before any leader could begin to campaign for the plebiscite.

 “We have heard some people calling for change of the Constitution but sadly they have not told us what is wrong with the current one.”

 “That urgent problem which demands for such an urgent amendment," Onyonka said.

On his part, South Mugirango MP, Silvanus Osoro, questioned the logic of amending the current supreme law which was promulgated in 2010 before it was even fully implemented, saying amendment calls were ill advised.

 “We must stop this debate about referendum and focus our energies on development.”

 “Looking at the state of affairs, some people are calling for change of Constitution to create positions for some individuals. We are not ready for that,” said Osoro.
