Kenya lawmakers opposed to the proposed Constitution have termed the move by the 'Yes' camp to utilise Sh541m of public money to fund its campaigns as "illegal". They said it was wrong for the government to take money from the public coffers without Parliament’s authority “We don’t remember as MPs approving a that a certain amount of money will be given to a group supporting the proposed Constitution irrespective of the flaws,” said Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo at a news conference at Parliament Buildings Thursday. “We’ll hold the government accountable for misuse of public funds.” MPs Kiema Kilonzo (Mutito, ODM-K), Julius Kones (Konoin, ODM), Charles Keter (Belgut, ODM) and Benjamin Langat (Ainamoi, ODM) also addressed the media. Answer for illegality Dr Kones and Mr Keter said if Treasury released the money to the 'Yes’ team, then the Finance minister Uhuru Kenyatta and his Justice counterpart Mutula Kilonzo “will have to answer for the illegality”. “Any amorphous body like the 'Yes’ secretariat is not legal; unless Parliament approves the funding, the minister of Finance should take note,” said Dr Kones. “The two sides should bring the funding proposals to Parliament and in any eventuality, the money has to be shared equally between the 'Yes’ and 'No’ sides.” The bulk of the blame fell on Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s declaration that the proposed Constitution was a government project under Agenda Four.
