"Punguza Mizigo is not dead," - Ekuru Aukot

Thirdway Alliance party leader Ekuru Aukot has criticised the Punguza Mizigo Initiative opponents led by Deputy President William Ruto.

Aukot said the latest debate by politicians that the Bill has been rejected by Kenyans is pure malice.

“It is outright lies that the Bill has hit a dead end as claimed recently by the Deputy President,” Aukot said.

Aukot said the bill has only been discussed in seven out of the 47 county assemblies.

“We are shocked that a small group of insensitive leaders are out there lying in brought daylight and pouring out cold water on this pro-people initiative,” Aukot said.

He added that some of the nominated MCAs said that they have been threatened to be rendered jobless if they support the bill seeking to amend the Constitution.

Aukot said the intention of the bill is to bring development close to the local Kenyans which he said is contrary to the current constitution.
