Wednesday August 27, 2014 - As the push for a referendum gains momentum, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s strategy to beat President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, in the plebiscite has leaked out.
Also leaked is how Raila Odinga plans to ensure all tribes in Kenya, apart from the Kikuyu and Kalenjin, get jobs in the Jubilee Government and get recognized as equal stakeholders in this great Republic.
According to some sources, Raila Odinga has plans to sway and win over small tribes and marginalized groups to his referendum by including proposals to end tribalism and nepotism in the civil service, that way they will all vote for the referendum.
The plans also include a proposal to overhaul employment policies to pave way for the quota system of employment which will ensure all tribes have equal chances in employment.
Raila wants minority groups and other small tribes to get 30% of all public appointments while no single community, including Kikuyu and Kalenjin, would occupy more than 10% of positions in public service and institutions.
CORD has already identified 40 communities that meet the criteria of being declared ethnic and racial minorities and who qualify for the quotas.
The 40 communities that Raila Odinga’s CORD has identified exclude Kalenjin and Kikuyu who dominate public service and parastatals.
