Muthama: Uhuru, Raila want to create powerful posts for themselves

I will carefully gauge the proposed law and I will be proud to make history as having rejected an amendment to the Constitution which was of no help to Kenyans,” he said. Muthama alleged that it was the persistent clamour and crusade for such a constitutional amendment which had led to the split in the ruling party with Tangatanga and Kieleweke factions emerging. “The country is now split down the middle with Tangatanga and Kieleweke factions emerging. Kenyans have linked Tangatanga to Deputy President William Ruto while Kieleweke has been associated with Uhuru and Raila and as Kenyans, we are saying we do not want to witness such divisions,” said Muthama. The debate on the possibility of a national referendum to amend sections of the Constitution intensified mid this week after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) said the popular initiative by Third Way Alliance leader, Ekuru Aukot had been supported by 1,222,541 registered voters.
