BY JOHN WERU/PSCU,NAIROBI,30TH APRIL 2017-State House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu says  the National Super Alliance (NASA) proposal to change the constitution within 90 days if it comes into power and create the office of Chief Cabinet Secretary and two deputies was  unattainable.

Esipisu said the move is likely to backfire given that the electorate is already burdened with other elective positions.

While on the political front, Esipisu set straight the record saying that making constitutional changes that require a referendum will simply not take three months. It will take years.

 “You know, people have agreed to take jobs that don’t exist, so, one of the opposition leaders was saying in a media interview that the first job for the team will be to use billions of shillings to change the constitution so the three phantom jobs can be legitimised,” he said.

Esipisu in his briefing also said that the opposition instead of creating wealth, their plan is to abuse existing wealth so three people can get jobs.

This statement comes after NASA named their flag bearer and created new positions to accommodate the party’s manifesto.

Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga was named as the flag bearer while his counterpart Wiper Democratic Party leader Stephen Kalonzo was named as his running mate.

Musalia Mudavadi of ANC was named as the Premier Cabinet Secretary in charge of Cabinet Coordination, Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula the Deputy Premier Cabinet Secretary Economic Sector and Chama Cha Mashinani leader Isaac Ruto Deputy Premier Cabinet Secretary for Governance.

The opposition alliance termed their quest for power as a third and final liberation of Kenya.
