Controversial lawyer Donald Kipkorir has weighed in on the Punguza Mzigo initiative that has caught the country by storm after garnering over 1.2 million votes.
According to Kipkorir, the initiative is a sideshow that will not see the light of the day.
He further adds that the only referendum Kenyans will see is one orchestrated by the handshake principals, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The lawyer also implied that because Uhuru and Raila control the country’s ‘political chessboard’, Aukot’s push for a referendum will not go far.
His sentiments come only a day after IEBC led by the Chairman Wafula Chebukati gave Punguza Mzigo the green light to push for their agenda in the counties.
The initiative, which seeks to significantly reduce the financial burden afflicting Kenyans, managed to collect over 1.2 million signatures and now only needs half of the 47 county assemblies to side with them to proceed.
