Third way Alliance to re-launch the Punguza Mizigo Bill

The Thirdway Alliance Party will today launch the second phase of the Punguza Mizigo constitutional amendment Bill, just a few months after an earlier initiative failed to win the approval of county assemblies as required in law.

Only Uasin Gishu and Turkana counties approved the Bill, falling short of the required 24 county assemblies.

Party leader Ekuru Aukot in a letter addressed to President Uhuru Kenyatta said that the Bill will be based on feedback collected from the initial initiative during the party’s visit to the counties.

Mr. Aukot argues that the Bill seeks to reduce the burden on the citizens by reducing the number of Members of the National Assembly from the current 349 to 147.

Thirdway had also proposed a 7-year single-term presidency.
