MP Moses Kuria

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said he will only support efforts to change the constitution if the idea is to ease the burden on Kenyans.

In a Facebook post directed at Raila Odinga, the Kuria said he agrees with the Opposition leader’s calls to repeal the supreme law but “these changes are about reducing the burden for Wanjiku.”

“It’s about reducing elective and nominated positions not adding positions. It’s not about adding the position of a Prime Minister or creating a parliamentary system. I hope you get this clearly,” Kuria said.

Raila has been gunning for a constitutional amendment since the 2017 August polls saying there are very fundamental issues that need to be addressed for the country to rid itself of perennial problems.

Key among the issues the ODM leader has identified is the need to create an all-inclusive government.

His argument is that Kenya is always divided every election year as poll losers are left with nothing by a ‘winner-takes-it-all’ system of governance.

This he says, leaves the country divided as those not represented in government feel alienated.
