We must fix IEBC before calling for a referendum, nothing has changed because the incompetency we saw still exists - MUDAVADI tells RAILA ODINGA

Tuesday October 9, 2018 - Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, has said the country needs to reform the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) before engaging in a debate about a referendum.

Speaking on Tuesday, Mudavadi also called on leaders pushing for the amendment of the Constitution to provide for genuine debate on what needs to be changed.

He said it is wrong for those opposed to the referendum to be labelled traitors, yet it has not been agreed what specifically needs to be amended.

“It is sheer malice.”

“I hold strong views against the referendum because there are many people with vested interests in the push,” Mudavadi said.

He said questions about electoral reforms were yet to be addressed and genuine national dialogue to arrive at a consensus has not taken place.

“There are preconditions for a referendum.”

“We have an IEBC that is in tatters yet we want it to preside over the vote,” he said.

He also urged Kenyans to reject the IEBC as currently constituted from carrying out a boundary review or overseeing a referendum saying it is a set-up for failure.

“The IEBC is an outfit that exists only in name.”

“It lost its credibility a long time ago,” he said.
