Aukot vows to soldier on despite Punguza Mizigo rejection


Thirdway Alliance leader Ekuru Aukot has vowed to present his Punguza Mizigo Bill before the remaining county assemblies despite its rejection by 12 counties.
Aukot said the party will announce the next move, adding that Kenyans must now come out and drum up support for the Bill.
“We shall be announcing our next steps very soon. This is like a football tournament. It does not end with one match,” said Aukot.
Aukot accused top politicians opposed to the bill of bribing MCAs to vote against it
“The Bill’s rejection is financed by the same political class that has been benefiting from the sweat and blood of the ordinary citizen,” said Aukot.
Aukot said amending articles 73, 79, 157 and 229 of the Constitution will end impunity as well as ending the culture of stealing public resources.
Nakuru, Machakos and Nairobi counties debated and rejected the bill on Tuesday.
Other counties that have rejected Aukot’s Bill include Kirinyaga, Kiambu, Nyeri, Kisii, Nyamira, Narok, West Pokot, Murang’a and Siaya.
Uasin Gishu county still stands as the only county that has passed the bill so far.
