We will not curse you, Poghisio told
There are no plans to curse Cabinet Minister Samuel Poghisio and Permanent Secretary Prof John Lonyangapuo over accusations that they misled the Pokot community to reject the new constitution at the referendum.
Members of the Pokot and Sengwer communities led by James Ngirangole and Moses Rop denied media reports that they there were plans by the Pokot and Sengwer communities to undertake the ceremony against them.
Poghisio and Lonyangpuo teamed up with Higher Education Minister William Ruto to push for a No vote at the August 4 referendum.
Flanked by thirty civic leaders from the region, the residents said media reports on the alleged plans for a curse was a plot to blackmail the two leaders from the area and have them removed from Government.
The councillors led by Benson Longit held a peaceful demonstration at Talau in support of the minister and the PS and accused some politicians of hatching a plot to discredit the two.
Former Kapenguria Mayor Jacob Samuli said the referendum was not about a political contest between leaders and that there were no losers in the poll.
At the same time the leaders denied that the residents were killings dogs and cats to evade paying taxes.
Cabinet Ministers Dr Sally Kosgei, Henry Kosgey, Franklin Bett and Hellen Sambili were among those who campaigned for a Yes vote
