, MACHAKOS, Kenya, Oct 4 – Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Joseph ole Sapit says the church supports constitutional amendments.

Speaking with journalists in Machakos Town after a meeting with other ACK leaders from lower Eastern province, the archbishop however noted that any amendments should be people-centred.

“We support any call for a referendum but it should not benefit a section of political leaders. Mwananchi is languishing as a result of the current constitution”, said Archbishop Sapit.

Sapit said that living in Kenya in this era is expensive as a result of too much money going to pay political leaders thus need for a referendum.

“A lot of money is going on wage bill. If there is anyway we can cut overspending through the referendum we need do it now and quickly,” he added.
