Saturday August 31, 2019-Nakuru County Senator, Susan Kihika, has called on Kenyans to reject a referendum that will increase the already bloated wage bill.
Speaking during an Inua Mama rally in Kamukunji on Friday, Kihika said the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was a cynical attempt to create more political positions to reward individuals.
BBI is an initiative spearheaded by President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga.
“We don't want a referendum that will add more burden. Is that what you want? If it comes here you will reject it? (Hatutaki referendum yenye itaongeza mzigo. Mnataka hiyo wananchi? Ikikuja hapa matafanya nini, si mtaikataa kabisa?) Kihika said.
Kihika, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, seems to have endorsed Third Way Alliance‘s Punguza Mzigo Initiative which seeks reduction of high wage bill by reducing number of MPs from initial 416 to 147.
