Allies of Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader, Raila Odinga to return to the coffers funds utilised in the flopped constitutional change bid.
The group want the Auditor-General, Nancy Gathungu to establish how much taxpayers’ money was used in the illegal Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) before the two proponents and their agents are surcharged.
Speaking over the weekend, Amani National Congress (ANC) boss, Musalia Mudavadi also said promoters of the constitutional review should be held responsible for wasting public funds.
Initially conceived as a political truce between President Kenyatta and Odinga through the March 9, 2018 handshake, the amendment process has been tedious and sometimes divisive, pitting the political class against one another, and against the electorate.
The Deputy President had expressed his reservations on a proposal to have parliamentary political parties participate in the appointment of the electoral commissioners, expansion of the executive, establishment of the National Police Council and creation of the Office of the Judiciary Ombudsman.
After Friday’s judgment, Ruto’s group have continued to fault the promoters of the process for applying intimidation and threats instead of listening to contrary views.
