Monday August 26, 2019 - Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has become the latest Jubilee Party politician to endorse the Punguza Mzigo Initiative.
Taking to social media on Sunday, Kuria said he will use all his resources to ensure that the initiative that is being pushed by Third Way Alliance party leader, Dr Ekuru Aukot, succeeds.
Kuria also lauded Aukot's initiative to reduce the wage bill, a project he revealed he fronted in 2015.
"In 2015, I launched Punguza Mzigo movement with a view to reducing the size (And cost) of our representation and as a critical moral pillar in a national consciousness towards public service reform and reducing our unacceptably high recurrent expenditure," reads Kuria’s post.
Kuria, while lamenting about a section of leaders who are opposing the bill, noted that Aukot's Punguza Mizigo bill only lacks some things that can be incorporated by having a discussion.
"Dr Aukot and myself have agreed to put a team together with a view to harmonizing our Punguza Mzigo visions and reflect the consensus through a refined and enhanced Bill.”
“I have further encouraged Dr Aukot to welcome other Kenyans in that endeavour as long as it is in the spirit of Punguza Mzigo," Kuria stated.
Punguza Mizigo bill being fronted by Aukot seeks to reduce the ballooning wage bill by scrapping the number of elective members in various legislative assemblies.
