Cherangany Member of Parliament (MP) Joshua Kuttuny has revealed that he is preparing to present a question to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to pave way for a referendum.

Kuttuny also said he will appear before the building bridges team to present a memorandum and opinion for an inclusive government.

The MP says he wants a constitutional review to do away with the presidential system of governance in Kenya which he claims is a risky model.

The MP was accompanied by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati who said his commission is ready for a referendum.

He said that up to now the commission has not received any referendum question to process.

The IEBC Chairperson said the referendum question can be submitted through a popular initiative where people collect signatures on various issues and present one million signatures with a referendum bill or through the parliamentary process.
