Blow to Ruto as MP Kuria Reveals the Radical Changes Set to Happen in 2022 poll

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has revealed that several changes will be witnessed in the 2022 general election.

He claims that the 2022 election will have an extra ballot paper to vote for a referendum,something that we all know Deputy President William Ruto and his allies have been strongly against.

The controversial legislator alludes that this extra ballot will be introduced in 2022 and that the introduction of the new ballot will commence in 2022 and that it would be practice in all subsequent elections.

He adds that the changes effected by the referendum in 2022 would take effect in 2027.

According to Kuria,the reason for this would be to save money from the public coffers as their would be no need to pay twice for a election and a referendum within the next 5 year period.

Here is what the Jubilee lawmaker shared on Facebook:

“In the 2022 General Elections there will be 7 ballot boxes- President, Governor, Senator, Women Rep, MP, MCA and Referendum. Any constitutional changes passed at that referendum will take effect in 2027. This will be the practice in all future General Elections. Donge?”

His remarks come hot on the heels of president Uhuru Kenyatta rejecting calls for a referendum that Opposition leader Raila Odinga has been pushing for after famous handshake.

Speaking on Friday at State House, Nairobi, during a follow-up meeting to last week’s 8th Presidential Round Table Forum that brought together stakeholders from government and the Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA),the president stated that he was not interested in making countrywide tours to advocate for the position, instead, he would focus.

“I have no time to run around telling people to change the Constitution. It won’t solve the problems we have. But engaging with the private sector on manufacturing like we are doing  right now,” Kenyatta stated.

He emphasized that the main job of the Government is to cultivate an enabling environment so that private sector can create jobs,something that endless politicking would not guarantee.

“That is why I wanted MPs to listen, and to hear what the concerns of the private sector are. I also want MPs to raise issues of what they feel needs to be done,” the president urged.

Calls for a referendum have,in the recent weeks, thrown the Jubilee party into turmoil with DP Ruto and his supporters rejecting the call saying that a referendum should not be a means to increasing positions in order  accommodate the former premier Raila Odinga.

But Uhuru’s position on the matter has since cooled-off issues in the ruling party.

According to political pundits,however,Moses Kuria’s sentiments are not to be taken lightly since he was the one who revealed the handshake deal between  President Uhuru and Mr Odinga ,a month before it took place.
