Dozens of Opposition MPs have declared that they will not stop the push for the proposed amendments to the Constitution to alter the governance structure.

They said the amendments would provide solutions to present-day democratic, economic and social challenges.

Led by Senate Minority Leader James Orengo, the leaders said Kenyans must be allowed to decide how best they want to be governed.

"This will help to lay the groundwork for more inclusive economic and social policies that leave no one behind, so that each Kenyans have the sense of belonging," said Mr Orengo during a homecoming party for Migori Woman Representative Pamela Odhiambo in Piny Oyie village, Migori County.
