You Dreaming! Aden Duale Warns Raila Odinga On Referendum

The leader of the majority in the National Assembly has dismissed the referendum calls made by former prime minister Rt Hon Raila Odinga saying the said referendum is not tenable with the prevailing conditions.
Raila Odinga, on Thursday, hinted that the country could be headed for a referendum sooner than we all thing. The African Union special envoy said that the Building Bridges Initiative team will finalize its work in May and thereafter the country will be ready for a vote.
Aden Duale disagreed with the sentiments of the former prime minister saying it is not logistically possible to hold a referendum this year.
The Garissa Town member of parliament said that the process of collecting a million signatures, presenting them to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission for verification and then the process of introducing the motion to parliament and county assemblies will take a lot of time.
Referendum is a process, given all the steps required for the Constitution to be changed, there are clear timelines and from where I sit, I do not see this thing practical.
Aden Duale is a very close ally of William Ruto who was perceived to be against constitutional changes proposed by Raila Odinga.
