Have a Non-Contested Referendum To Cut Costs, Mudavadi Tells Leaders
As the debate about the cost of referendum continues to intensify Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi is now pushing for a consensus to have a non contested referendum in order to lower the cost of the exercise.
In an interview this morning at Ghetto Radio 89.5 FM breakfast show Mudavadi stated that the proposed Ksh. 14 billion shillings should not be used in a single referendum and that consensus is the only way to save Kenyans from a huge referendum budget.
“Let us have a broad consensus and when we have non contested referendum.. we shall not have huge budget for this exercise so that rest of the cash can be used in other sectors,” he said.
He further slammed Deputy President William Ruto on the hustler narrative saying it is divisive.
“We do not want Kenyan youth to leave with long tokens. Deputy President should push for good policy to help our youths but not wheelbarrow and tokenism …the policy must must be sustainable,” he said.
