Senate minority leader James Orengo and Gem Member of Parliament Elisha Ochieng Odhiambo have sharply differed with deputy president William Ruto over the issue of a proposed referendum to amend certain laws.
They claim that it is only through a referendum that the country can be able to implement the agreement reach on by opposition leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The duo explains that with the current constitution, some of the laws do not allow the changes in the agreement to be implemented, hence the need for their amendment through a referendum.
Orengo noted that the changes to be made in Kenya’s constitution through referendum are aimed to improving the livelihood of Kenyans and not to great job opportunities for politicians as insinuated by hon. William Ruto.
The Senator has therefore told off a section of Jubilee leaders led by deputy president William Ruto to stop the 2022 campaigns and concentrate on ways of determining how this country is going to move forward by according Odinga and Kenyatta all the necessary help.
They were speaking during a fund drive in aid of Kaudha secondary school in south Gem ward, an occasion which was also graced by Ugenya MP Chris Karan, Siaya County Women Representative Dr. Christine Ombaka among other guests.
