Thirdway Alliance to Unveil Revamped Punguza Mizigo Bill
Thirdway Alliance Party was Monday set to launch a revamped Punguza Mizigo constitutional amendment Bill, months after a similar initiative failed to win the approval of county assemblies as required in law.
Only Uasin Gishu and Turkana counties approved the Bill, falling short of the required 24 county assemblies.
In a letter inviting President Uhuru Kenyatta to the unveiling of the revamped Bill, Party Leader Ekuru Aukot disclosed that the second phase of the Bill.
The proponents of the Bill which made it through the signature validation stage with the support of 1.2 million registered voters said it would reduce the burden of the blotted legislative assemblies in the country.
The Bill was however dismissed by politicians pushing for a constitutional amendment under the Building Bridges Initiative championed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
