    MP Salah Yakub Defends Proposal to Extend Presidency Term Limit

    Published on

    Salah Yakub, a member of parliament from Fafi, has said that presidents with track records of growth should not be limited to two terms because of the positive economic influence they might have on their nation.

    The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) lawmaker who spoke in favor of a second term for President William Ruto in an NTV interview on November 8 stood firm in his belief that doing so would be in the country’s best interest.

    Although Mwai Kibaki’s 10-year administration was marked by several economic achievements, Yakub said he was stopped from remaining in government.

    He continued by saying that several of his UDA colleagues, who share similar ideals, felt Kibaki should have been allowed to run for a third term.

    But he stressed again that they were still In the early stages of brainstorming, and that they would reach a more developed level when the moment was perfect for debate.

    Yakub responded to rumors of disciplinary action from UDA by saying he had not been disciplined and that there were no plans to de-whip him.

    The UDA party and Ruto’s supporters publicly disavowed the notion, claiming instead that it was the lawmaker’s distinctive and original idea.
