In Summary
  • Dr Aukot said the new bill will be people-driven and will outline radical measures in the fight against corruption and over representation.
  • His first proposal to amend the Constitution hit a dead end after it was rejected by more than 24 counties.
  • Only Uasin Gishu and West Pokot county assemblies approved the proposal.

Thirdway Alliance party leader Ekuru Aukot has announced that he is going back to the drawing board in his fight to amend the Constitution after his Punguza Mizigo bill was rejected by many counties.

Dr Aukot said Friday that he will launch a redrafted proposal, which he hopes will attract the support of county assemblies.

Many counties dismissed his initial proposal saying it recommended impractical methods in governance and the fight against corruption.

PEOPLE-DRIVEN

In an interview with the Nation, Mr Aukot said the new bill will incorporate the views of the county assemblies.

Dr Aukot said the bill will be people-driven and will outline radical measures in the fight against corruption and over representation.

“Our mission and vision to amend the current Constitution will finally bear fruits to address the overrepresentation, massive corruption in the country and strengthen devolution,” he said.
