ACK Archbishop Eliud Wabukala calls for a referendum

By: MARTIN MWAURA

Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) Archbishop Eliud Wabukala has called for a referendum “to liberate the country from politicians’ appetite for money and power”.

Speaking at Murang’a ACK Cathedral on Saturday, Archbishop Wabukala said that the only way to stop greed and corruption was for Christians and other religious people to sponsor a motion of referendum that would be drafted for the next General Election.

Archbishop Wabukala, who chairs the National Anti-Corruption Campaign Steering Committee, urged Kenyans to start a strong movement to tame the politicians ahead of 2017.

“I call upon Kenyans to rescue our country from politics as there is a lot of appetite for money and power,” he said. “We have given a lot of premium to politics.”

“I think there should be a third force, a third revolution or a third reformation in this country. My suggestion would be another reform to liberate this country from appetite of money and power,” the cleric said.

His call comes at a time MPs have come up with more extravagant proposals that will afford them and their spouses preferential treatment at the expense of taxpayers.
