Third Way Alliance Party leader Ekuru Aukot is in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County as he continues with his push for a meaner government.
The Party has gathered 600 thousand signatures, – 400 thousand shy of the 1 million needed to pass through the first stage of the planned referendum.
Speaking in Eldoret Town, Aukot said the campaign was proceeding well especially in terms of reach, so far having managed to cover 9 counties collecting signatures.
“We have so far managed to reach 9 counties but by next week we hope to have gotten to 12 counties,” he said.
“The campaign is being received very well on the ground including the political class which is very happy with what we are doing. – The only problem is that they are a bit reluctant to come out in the open,” he added.
Aukot said they were taking time to educate Kenyans on the need to amend the constitution, – over-representation and the cost implications, why it is important to use the ward as a unit of development, addressing the issue of corruption and so on.
The team will proceed to Sugoi – The home village of Deputy President William Ruto, Turbo, and Kipkaren among other areas.
