The Service Party leader Mwangi Kiunjuri now says that Kenya will not be at a loss whether the Constitution Amendment Bill (2020) sails through or not.
Speaking during the burial of Susan Wanjiku Wanjuki who was wife to former Laikipia West MP Dr. Wachira Karani at their Kinamba farm in Laikipia, Kiunjuri said that as much as there are good proposals in the draft bill, the referendum should not be a matter of life and death.
“whether the amendments pass or not, we will still have a constitution. Kenya has a constitution in place”
Kiunjuri further said that it would save the country time and money if the referendum is conducted earlier than scheduled, a situation he says will also prevent politicians from dragging the country into unnecessary political noise.
“why don’t we do the referendum in March or April, we are not opposing. so wacha iletwe tupige kura mapema, na hiyo pesa wangetumia kufanya campaigns isaidie wananchi na njia zingine”
The Service Party had drafted a raft of proposals it wanted included in the draft bill, which according to the party leader, about 90% have been factored in.
“sisi watu wa Laikipia tumeongezewa constituency moja, mambo ya one man one shilling imewekwa. sasa tutapinga aje na tunataka watu wetu wasaidike..”
Other leaders present during the burial ceremony included Laikipia MP Catherine Waruguru, Laikipia Senator John Kinyua, Laikipia West PM Patrick Mariru among other leaders.
