Five Permanent Secretaries have pitched tent in Western Province to educate people on the Proposed Constitution. PSs Beatrice Kituyi (Labour), Kenneth Lusaka (Livestock), Dorothy Angote (Lands) Andrew Mondoh (Special Programme) and David Stower (Water) met leaders from four districts and also urged the people to support the proposed laws, saying it has many gains. The leaders were from Emuhaya, Sabatia, Hamisi and Vihiga districts. The chapter on land dominated the session. The PSs said they were not on a campaign trail. "In 2006, we went round the country educating the public on Vision 2030 and how it is anchored on the three pillars which is political, social and economical," said Mr Lusaka. Angote said the ‘No’ camp was polluting the public’s mind by confusing them with the land issues. "I am a lawyer and the PS in the Ministry of Lands. The proposed law is the best for this country. It will bring order in the ministry," she explained. The PSs assured the public the Provincial Administration will not be scrapped. "Contrary to what you have been told, the Provincial Administration will not be done away with," said Kituyi. The PSs, said they would not deceive people to support a bad draft. They were speaking at Vihiga High School yesterday. Former President Moi has said the active participation of Permanent Secretaries in the referendum campaign is a breach of the Public Officers’ Ethics Act. He said the Act prohibits public officers from engaging in politics. Speaking in Molo and Kuresoi constituencies, Moi said civil servants are expected to be impartial. The former Head of State said he was committed to opposing the draft constitution and urged Kenyans to reject it, saying it has clauses that had potential to ignite ethnic confrontation. Some PSs have been traversing the region to drum up support for the Proposed Constitution. He emphasised that a constitution is not for an individual, political party, or a section.
