Uhuru with Raila. Former presidential aspirant Ekuru Aukot posted a video of Uhuru lashing back at how Raila and NASA wanted to change the constitution in 2017 so as to create more executive posts. FACEBOOK
Kenyans.co.ke landed on a video which showed how President Uhuru Kenyatta hit back at Orange Democratic leader, Raila Odinga’s plan to create extra executive posts in 2017, before the controversial general election.
“Some politicians have been lied to like little children in broad daylight that they will be Prime Ministers and Deputy Prime Ministers,” Uhuru revealed during a campaign rally in 2017 as seen in the video.
He further added that the positions were no longer existent.
“The constitution does not allow for the creation of such positions. They believe that they will later change the constitution.
“The Prime Minister post was scrapped off when the (Nusu Mkate) Grand-Coalition government went home,” Uhuru laughed at Raila and his colleagues
The video was posted by Punguza Mizigo Bill chief campaigner, Dr. Ekuru Aukot, on his Twitter as he recalled how Uhuru was against National Super Alliance’s plan to create positions of Premier Cabinet Secretary (PCS), who was to be a quasi-Prime Minister and Deputy Premier Cabinet Secretary.
Raila was to be President, Kalonzo Musyoka his deputy, Musalia Mudavadi: Premier Cabinet Secretary in charge of Government coordination. Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula: Deputy Premier CS responsible for economic sector coordination.
Chama cha Mashinani leader, Isaac Ruto, would have been Deputy Premier CS social works responsible for governance and social services sector coordination.
Aukot’s Punguza Mizigo Bill spells out a plan to reduce various positions in government. He, therefore, wondered why Uhuru and Raila are tarnishing Punguza Mizigo in favour of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), yet Uhuru was against adding more positions to the executive in 2017.
Aukot and BBI fanatics clashed on various moments.
On Thursday, August 29, Aukot lashed back at Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru, for blatantly lying through her teeth over his Punguza Mzigo campaign.
The governor had posted that Nyeri County Assembly MCAs had turned down the bill setting precedent for their colleagues from other counties to follow suit. She argued that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was a better alternative.
