    Azimio and Kenya Kwanza collaborate to amend the constitution regarding CDF.

    Published on

    In an effort to permanently establish the constituency development fund (CDF), President William Ruto and Raila Odinga’s loyalists joined forces to propose a constitutional amendment.

    This happened when eight legislators voted in favor of serving on a joint committee to start the process of amending the constitution.

    On Thursday, November 24, representatives from Kenya Kwanza and Azimio la Umoja came to an accord proposing that the modification be made via a legislative proposal, as allowed for in Article 256 of the Constitution.

    It was stated that a referendum would not be necessary if the issue were resolved via the parliamentary amendment process.

    MPs Samuel Chepkonga of Ainabkoi, nominated MP John Mbadi, MP Otiende Amollo of Rarieda, and MP Eckomas Mutuse of Kibwezi East were all mentioned as potential leaders of the constitutional amendment movement.
    Edward Muriu (Gatanga), Catherine Wambilianga (Bungoma Woman Rep), David Mboni (Kitui Rural), and Kakai Bisau (Kiminini) were among the others.

    As part of the committee’s work, senators were also tasked with selecting nine members.

    In addition to the CDF, lawmakers are pushing to constitutionally establish the National Government Affirmative Action Fund, the Senate Oversight Fund, and the Economic Stimulus and Empowerment Fund.

    The representatives said that the money was necessary so that they could help those in need in the community.

    Moses Wetangula and Amason Kingi, the respective speakers of the House and Senate, will issue directives after the presentation of their respective chambers’ proposals.
    Since the Supreme Court ruled that the CDF was illegal, members of parliament have been battling to restore its funding.
