Uhuru Kenyatta declines offer of plum job

President Kenyatta declines offer by Jubilee MPs

Earlier this week a section of Jubilee MPs led by Tiaty MP William Kamket had proposed a constitutional amendment to create the position of Prime minister.

Endebess MP Robert Pukose led MPs allied to Jubilee party in declaring that they would have no problem with Kenyatta serving in the position and fronted him for the same.

Speaking in Machakos on Saturday, the president made it clear that he is not interested I serving in any plum post once his current term ends in 2022.

Kenyatta stated that the “time of politics is over, now what remains is to implement development projects in every corner of the country. Those interested in 2022 seats will battle it out among themselves, I will be at home”.

The proposal by Kamket sought met resistance from different quarters including from his own Jubilee party leaders who outrightly dismissed it.

Jubilee party leaders have expressed a desire to keep Uhuru active in politics beyond 2022 with different ideas and posts being fronted.

The party’s Vice Chairman David Murathe disclosed in Gatanga that Kenyatta will stay on as the party chairman even after his second term ends in 2022.
