Kisii County women  representative Janet Ong’era  has said there is much need for  a referendum which will see  necessary  electoral laws  and help the country to have harmony.

Mama county  who was speaking on Sunday at her officer in Kisii town after disbursing Ksh 15 million  to 51 groups  who benefited  from National affirmative action fund,  hailed  Deputy President William Ruto for softening his stance on a referendum .

He added that  the push  by  former prime Minister Raila Odinga will help the country change clauses in the constitution and enhance a level playing ground during elections.

“Let’s know that Raila  means well for this country since we all want justice and fairness for all Kenyans. So when he talks about the Referendum  he knows what he is doing” said Janet

She added that changes will help to have laws which will curb rigging of elections  and conflicts after presidential elections.

The Mp, who was a Director during the ‘No’ and ‘Yes’ campaigns said some clauses in the constitution were unfair, saying amending the clauses  will improve the constitution and remove disparities being witnessed.

This comes after DP Ruto said he is not against the referendum but wants proponents to explain what they want to amend, why and when  it will be done, stunning foes after he initially hesitated in embracing it.

At the same time she  appealed to the beneficiaries of the funds to invest in viable projects, adding officers will visit the groups to monitor the projects and assess their progress to ensure the funds are not wasted.

“I call upon those who have received the funds to make use of them and invest in viable projects”she said
