The bill by Tiaty Member of Parliament William Kamket to change the constitution to adopt a parliamentary system might be dead on arrival for discussion by parliament after Jubilee top brass opposed it.
The bill seeks to create the position of a powerful prime minister and clip the presidential powers.
Speaking in Bomet on Saturday during the commissioning of Teganda- Ndaraweta – Leldaret road, DP William Ruto dismissed the proposed bill terming it a waste of time.
Ruto called on leaders to focus on service delivery and not on a referendum that would misuse funds meant for development activities.
The DP further said that Kenyans have been tolerant enough with politicians who have subjected them to a prolonged electioneering period that not only has a negative effect on the economy but also divides the country along tribal lines.
“Wananchi walifanya sehemu yao kwa mwaka karibu moja. Wamehangaika na campaign,wametupigia kura mpaka wakarudia wakatupigia kura.
Sasa, nafasi ambayo ipo sio ya kuzunguka na mijadala na mambo ya kurekebisha katiba ndio viongozi wapate mamlaka sijui, nafasi iliyopo sasa ni ya kushughulikia Wakenya.” said The DP.
