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
