Kalonzo says Kenyans will get new constitution


By Job Weru

Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka has reiterated the Government commitment to realise a new constitution.

Kalonzo said the Parliament, which is expected to resume tomorrow was ready to discuss and pass the revised draft constitution, which is at the hands of the Committee of Experts.

"It is my hope that Parliament would not allow individuals with selfish interests to contort what was prepared in Naivasha by the Parliamentary Select Committee on constitution," said Kalonzo.

Speaking at Kimathi University grounds in Nyeri during the Scouts Movement founders’ day celebrations, the Mwingi North MP said he was ready to rally MPs to resist attempts to scuttle the review.

"This is a process which we started many years ago, and for the sake of Kenyan generations, we would not allow pessimists to derail our dreams of having a new law," he said.

His views came after Mukurweini MP and Youth and Sports Assistant Minister Kabando wa Kabando said he hoped MPs would resume parliamentary session with the aim of passing the proposed constitution.

"We look forward to a renewed relationship between coalition partners for the sake of giving Kenyans their worthy due," said Kabando.
