“Referendum will act to cement the unity brought by the handshake by ensuring that all communities are equal. You have seen how governors are stealing public money in the counties, theft is also in the national government. This is what we want to stop. We want to make it hard for them to steal public funds” said Kamanda.

What angered most Kenyans, is Kamanda’s stern remarks on those supporting Thirdway Alliance party leader Ekuru Aukot’s Punguza Migizo initiative.

Kamanda warned them saying that BBI’s recommendations will only give directions to Kenyans terming the initiative as a people-driven process.
