Monday July 22, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto has become the first senior politician to indirectly endorse the Punguza Mzigo Initiative fronted by Thirdway Alliance party leader, Dr Ekuru Aukot.
In an interview with K24 on Sunday evening, Ruto said Kenyans should support the referendum that will reduce high wage bill and also that will address small issues facing common mwananchi.
"A referendum that addresses the needs of wananchi and eases their burden is the way to go. The two sides that are fronting issues for a public vote ought to sit, deliberate and prosecute key matters that will be put to Kenyans," Ruto said.
Ruto also cautioned against some of the proposals being made such as having the loser of the election become a prime minister.
He added that Kenya is a multi-party democracy and any legislation that negates this constitutional ideal is untenable and will set us on the path of a dictatorship.
Ruto also dismissed claims that he was not in a good working relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
"We have a working relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta. Our rapport goes back a long time. We share a vision of unity, prosperity and common good for all Kenyans," he said.
