STORMING OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY.

We believe that sovereign power belongs to the people, and only donated to elected leaders as enshrined in Article 1 of the Constitution of Kenya which states as follows:

(1) All sovereign power belongs to the people of Kenya and shall be exercised only in accordance with this Constitution.

(2) The people may exercise their sovereign power either directly or through their democratically elected representatives.

I do hereby seek for historic support from members of the public, civil society, comrades and religious leaders in storming the National Assembly if Aden Duale does not withdraw the proposed salary and allowances increment at the expense of taxpayers within the next 14 days.

We shall comply with all the due constitutional and legal requirements to ensure the success of this demonstration and protect the rights of the people of Kenya.

The Jubilee majority leader Aden Duale is leading MPs who are pushing for a salary increment.

Earlier last week, Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo had said He’s has never been bankrupt like this before while on her part Suba MP, Millie Odhiambo, blamed her constituents for making her go broke.

Member of Parliament are alleging that their salaries are stretched to the limit because of contributions and handouts.

Which, on my opinion, is a total bluff from what we elected expecting to be our leaders and protectors.

Most of our MPs have fixed their lives in an extremely flashy superstar lifestyle that exceeds their pay.

Sonko rants and angry attack on Duale are over the delayed funds supposed to be allocated to counties by the National Assembly.

Sonko while speaking at Alladina Grounds in Jomvu, Mombasa County on Sunday attacked Duale and his plot to undermine devolution.

In a video doing rounds on the internet,that was shared by Sonko, Nairobi Governor is heard ranting to Duale “I want to tell Aden Duale that hii pesa ya devolution si pesa ya mama yako.”

Sonko’s rants are coming at a time when Governors, led by Council of Governors Chairperson, Wycliffe Oparanya,
forced their way into the Supreme Court buildings to submit a petition seeking to compel parliament to pass the Division of Revenue Allocation Bill 2019.

The Division of Revenue Allocation Bill stipulates how money should be disbursed to counties.
