Ford-Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula has called on Kenyans to reject the presidential system in the coming referendum which gives power to a few individuals at the expense of the majority voters.
S p e a k i n g at Sirisia at the burial of Sarah Barasa, a Ford Kenya supporter, over the weekend We t a n g ’ u l a claimed that the current constitution is a catalyst of chaos since it centers power to a few individuals at the expense of majority voters.
“The 2010 c o n s t i t u t i o n brought a system where the winner takes it all and power is shared by only two communities,” said Wetang’ula.
The Bungoma senator clashed with Sirisia MP John Waluke when Waluke called on voters to reject the Building Bridges Initiative and suggested that Wetang’ula drops his presidential ambitions and supports William Ruto.
The Ford Kenya leader said that he will run for president in 2022 and will not support Ruto who according to the senator has been politically isolated and begging from the periphery of power as a result of the limitations of the constitution.
Wetang’ula said that unless the constitution is changed political power will continue revolving around two communities which he did not name and majority Kenyans will forever be isolated from the top leadership.
“Waluke should stop day dreaming that his boss is close to the top seat when he is begging for power from the sidelines as a result of the centralisation of power by a few people supported by this constitution,” he said.
