The Council of Governors (CoG) has decided not to merge with Opposition to push for a referendum to amend the constitution.
Peter Munya, CoG chairman, said the resolution was reached to avoid the council’s Pesa Mashinani initiative being viewed as partisan.
“The position of governors is that though the issues being canvassed by the two groups are similar, the objectives are not the same. We want a bi-partisan approach to these issues unlike CORD, who are partisan. We want to drive our own bid,” Munya quoted by The Standard.
His predecessor Isaac Ruto, the Bomet governor, had in several occasions hinted joining forces with Cord’s Okoa Kenya campaign due to the similar objectives of the two drives.
However, Munya maintained that he will not be silenced by his party (TNA) and will lead the governors in their push for more funds to be allocated to county governments.
