KANU's Gideon Moi Okay's Extending Uhuru's Term as ODM Reveals When The Referendum Will be Conducted

The Kenya African National Union which is led by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has okayed President Uhuru Kenyatta's term extension after 2022 as the Orange Democratic Movement reveals when Kenyans should expect a referendum.

KANU Party Secretary Nick Salat has informed that they fully support the move to have the life of Parliament extended adding that the country cannot afford to go to the next general election whereas there are national matters that need to be resolved.

“The country cannot afford to go to the next election before underlying issues that lead to violence during each election cycle are resolved,” Mr. Salat said.

The KANU Secretary-General has said that if the BBI will bring a lasting solution that will resolve the perennial election chaos in the country, “so be it”, he added.

“We cannot avoid the postponement of the election if that will bring lasting peace.”

ODM Party has also responded to the claims through the National Assembly Minority leader Junet Mohammed informing that the Building Bridges Initiative has nothing to do with the 2022 general elections.

Junet has hinted when Kenyans should expect a referendum informing that“If the court clears this matter, Kenyans must prepare for a referendum even if it’s three days to the elections. The referendum must take place before 2022" adding that "there is no law barring the IEBC from conducting a referendum any time."
