WEBSITE FOR KENYA'S BANANA CAMPAIGN FOR YES VOTE ON CONSTITUTION
The Yes team on the Kenyan constitutional changes launched its website, www.visionyes.com.The launch came two weeks after the No team started its campaign website, www.orangenocampaign.com .
Last week's new web site gives voters the chance to compare the proposed Constitution, the Bomas Draft and the current Constitution. "The website is designed to give Kenyans a 360 degree view of all the issues in the current and the proposed constitutions, and enables a candid, fair and equitable discussion of the issues therein," said Mr Kamau Mbugua, an official of the Vision Yes lobby group.
Banana team leaders, Information minister Raphael Tuju, assistant minister Danson Mungatana and MPs Njoki Ndung'u, Jayne Kihara and Kalembe Ndile attended the inauguration of the website at Serena Hotel in Nairobi.
Mr Tuju said the web site was the brainchild of youthful professionals and businesspeople who formed Vision Yes lobby last month."People will now be able to read and compare the (three sets of laws). They have been filled with lies by the Orange team," he said.On the home page of the website, is the question: "Where is the truth?"
The website also enables an e-mail debate between the public and the Yes secretariat to take place and posts analytical articles about the proposed law.
