Thursday August 15, 2019 - Former Attorney General, Prof Githu Muigai, has endorsed the Punguza Mzigo initiative saying the current Government is too big to manage.
Speaking on Thursday at the ongoing annual conference of the Law Society of Kenya being held in Mombasa, Prof Muigai said the country is running a Government that is too large in size and numbers, hence the need for a referendum to reduce elective seats.
"We are running a Government that we cannot manage, it is too large.. thinking in size and numbers.”
“We need to revisit Chapter 6 of the Constitution," Muigai said.
Muigai added that the Government should be small and functional.
He said the positions of Commissioners should be abolished and their duties be returned to the Ministries.
“We must go back to logic.”
“The Government must be lean, small and functional.”
“Abolish the Commissions and return their mandates to the Ministries," Muigai said.
The former AG seems to endorse the Punguza Mzigo initiative by Dr Ekuru Aukot which seeks to reduce Parliamentary seats from 416 to 147 and abolish Deputy Governor’s position.
