30/ 11/2020 – A human rights group dubbed Linda Katiba led by former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga, has said the intended constitution amendments will not help in the fight against corruption in the country.
The group which also includes Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua and activist Boniface Mwangi, has criticized the Building Bridges Initiative and called on Kenyans to reject the changes, by not appending their signatures to endorse the document.
Mutunga says, the young people should be at the center of decision making, but have been ignored in the process, and are still under-represented in the document.
“This is my address for young people, because my generation really has failed in terms of that aspect. You have to realise that in 10 years you might not have a country,” said Mutunga.
Activist Boniface Mwangi tore into the BBI document, terming it a ploy by President Uhuru Kenyatta to remain in power and help ODM leader Raila Odinga into government.
“The president has defied the courts, the president has defied the will of the Kenyan people,” said Mwangi.
This comes even as more leaders proposing the document launch the signature drive in different counties.
