Lugari MP Ayub Savula has supported the move by NASA calling for the formation of a People’s Assembly. Speaking in his constituency, Savula said the assembly would give

Savula said the Constitution allows Kenyans to unswervingly determine how the country is being governed if the elected leaders fail to perform their mandate.

“I think, it is necessary to have the People’s Assembly. Regardless of the current political situation, the 2010 constitution clearly indicates that each and every Kenyan citizen has an equal stake in the country,” said Savula.
The Lugari MP said it was disappointing that Jubilee government was treating some communities in the country as second-class citizens, yet they are part and parcel of the country and needed to be treated with the respect they deserve.
Savula called on counties assemblies who have not discussed the bill to forge ahead and adopt the formation of people’s assemblies in their regions in a bid to transform the country.
