– NASA has said it will call for reforms which will see the constitution changed
Devolution Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has hinted at plans by the Jubilee administration to enact changes to the constitution to create more positions in government.
Speaking on Monday, November 13, Kiunjuri said President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration knows there are changes that should be made to the constitution.
He dismissed the National Super Alliance (NASA) for demanding the changes, instead saying what NASA is saying is what Jubilee has been planning to do.
“What the opposition is asking is what we know. That we have to go back to the constitution and make some changes. We also want to expand the government properly to accommodate many of us,” Kiunjuri said.
He further warned that Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto are not willing to hold any discussions with NASA led by Raila Odinga until he is sworn in as president.
As reported by TUKO.co.ke, Raila recently called for a caretaker government for six months to allow for fresh election to be conducted.
NASA has threatened to swear in Raila as president if Uhuru is sworn in.
But Kiunjuri argues that NASA lost in the two elections and should accept that they cannot be in government. He said Uhuru is not ready to share his government with Raila.
