, NAIROBI, Kenya, May 3 – The United States Government strongly supports the constitutional review process, which is the centerpiece of the reform agenda. Ambassador Ranneberger has made the U.S. position clear on many occasions.
In order to support a transparent, credible, and inclusive review process the U.S. Government is providing extensive support for civic education, community dialogue, and domestic monitoring of the referendum.
We have noted reports of alleged funding coming from non-governmental groups in the U.S. in support of the “No” campaign. We wish to clarify that these activities are not supported or encouraged by the U.S. Government. Non-governmental groups in the United States are independent of the U.S. Government.
