Some Jubilee leaders have promised to block a proposed referendum. The proposed vote is aimed at amending the Constitution to create the post of prime minister, a matter that seems to auger well with the Orange Democratic Movement. 

The Jubilee leaders allied to DP William Ruto say the push for constitutional amendments are ill-conceived and ill-timed. They said the process of coming up with a referendum question should be consultative and geared at addressing the challenges facing the country, but not to create positions to satisfy sectarian interests. 

The leaders spoke yesterday at Moi Kapsowar Girls in Elgeyo Marakwet County during a funds drive graced by Mr Ruto. “We formed the Jubilee government with a sole aim of uniting the country and to remove tribes-based politics. We are now focused at delivering on the Big Four agenda. But we shall not entertain debates on creating positions for individuals,” said Ruto.
