Tanga Tanga Movement MP puts Uhuru on the spot in front of other leaders

Declare your stance- Uhuru told by MP

President Kenyatta with DP William Ruto and Opposition leader Raila Odinga in Kisii

Kitutu Chache lawmaker Richard Onyonka put President Uhuru Kenyatta on the spot over where he stands in the calls for a Constitution referendum.

Speaking on Wednesday in Kisii, during President Kenyatta's visit, Onyonka told Uhuru to give a straight directive because he and his deputy William Ruto have been sending different signals.

"Your Excellency I am the chairman of the Tanga Tanga movement here in Kisii. Today I want you to tell us what you want," Onyanka stated.

"Do you want a referendum or not? We don't want this confusion where the DP is saying this and you saying that. Tell us," he added.

Referendum calls

Speculation has been rife that President Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga could be on one camp and DP Ruto on the opposing side if the referendum is held in Kenya.

On Tuesday Mr Odinga agreed with DP Ruto that Cabinet Secretaries should also sit in Parliament as part of constitutional reforms to enhance governance and accountability.

The current Constitution depoliticizes the Executive arm of government by barring the President from having politicians in his Cabinet.

Health projects

The thinking stems from a feeling that, as currently constituted, ministers, being direct appointees of the President, rarely interact with Parliament.

President Kenyatta is in the region to launch health projects and he was accompanied by DP Ruto, Opposition leader Raila Odinga among other top government officials.

Kisii governor James Ongwae welcomed the Head of State where he presided over the ground-breaking ceremony of the Sh2.25 billion Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Centre.
