Monday October 1, 2018 - National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga’s calls for a referendum seem to be gaining momentum even as Deputy President William Ruto joins the camp of opposing it.
On Sunday, a good number of Jubilee MPs supported the referendum saying they want the constitution amended to reduce the number of elected seats.
Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, said.
Other Jubilee MPs who have thrown their weight behind calls for a referendum are; Michael Muchira (Ol-Joro Orok), Subukia’s Kinuthia Gachobe, Kimani Kuria of Molo, Faith Gitau (Nyandarua Women Rep), Patrick Mariru of Laikipia West, Mr Patrick Munene (Chuka-Igamba-Ng’ombe), Mathioya’s Peter Kimari and nominated MP Maina Kamanda.
Despite Kuria supporting Odinga’s move, he has gone ahead to warn Mr. Odinga against taking advantage of the referendum to create the Prime Minister’s position and introducing a parliamentary system of governance.
