REFERENDUM

Mr Kamanda praised the BBI as people-driven process.

"There is no turning back, the referendum should come faster so that we amend the Constitution. We are fully behind President Uhuru Kenyatta and the ODM leader Raila Odinga," said Mr Kamanda.

He was speaking during a church service at Oljororok Catholic Church in Nyahururu on Sunday where he was accompanied by a host of Jubilee Party politicians allied to team Kieleweke.

"You have seen how governors are stealing public money in the counties, theft is also in the national government. This is what we want to stop. We want to make it hard for them to steal public funds.

"We also want to cement the unity handshake has brought by ensuring that all communities are equal," he added.
