Rarieda Mp Otiende Amollo, Nominated MP Godfrey, ODM chairman John Mbadi, ODM Secretary general Edward Sifuna and Ford Kenya secretary general Eseli Simiyu responded to remarks made by Ruto over the referendum when he delivered his speech in London.

Mbadi stated that the cost that would be used to facilitate the referendum would not disunite the country.

“Matters of inclusivity are more important than the cost of a referendum.

“What the DP needs to do is join other Kenyans in fighting graft so that we have enough money for a referendum. We will have enough money by reducing wastage and pilferage of public funds,” remarked Mbadi.

The ODM chairman who is also the Suba South MP, further remarked that the DP was not concentrating on the current problems facing the country.

“I don’t think the question of a referendum is a matter of debate now.

 “Whoever is still raising issues on whether we should have a referendum is living in his own world.

“The DP is completely out of touch with reality in the country,” stated the ODM chairman.

Ruto's suggestion on the referendum

Last Friday during a public lecture at Chatham House, London, Ruto appeared to offer his support for a referendum that seeks to make changes to the constitution.

The DP had proposed for a parliamentary system of government that would contain an executive President, a prime minister, and an official leader of opposition.

Ruto suggested that the President would be chosen by the voters, the Prime Minister would be granted to the person with majority in parliament while the Presidential candidate who came in second, would be the opposition leader.
