New twist in law proposing to extend Uhuru’s term by 2 years

2022 politics at play?

The proposal was introduced by Tiaty MP William Kamket, a Jubilee-allied MP elected on a KANU ticket.

National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale stated that Kamket’s bill had nothing to do with the Jubilee Party and urged the media to desist from linking the ruling party on the matter.

“The media should stop using the Jubilee Party in sensationalising their reporting for the purposes of capturing their market. They should desist from misreporting on such matters,” Duale stated.

Kamket’s proposal has elicited heated discussions on social media, with many fearing that the new law will allow President Uhuru Kenyatta to continue serving until 2024.

The controversial bill further proposes the creation of the position of a powerful prime minister while doing away with the office of the Deputy President.

The Budget and Appropriations Committee of the National Assembly will on Thursday scrutinise the Bill and determine whether its financial implications are sustainable.
