    Ruto Warns MPs Trying to Extend His Office Term

    Published on

    On Wednesday, November 16, President William Ruto downplayed efforts by certain United Democratic Alliance (UDA) legislators to overturn the two-term limit established by the Constitution.

    At a meeting of the UDA’s Parliamentary Group at Nairobi’s State House, the president urged the lawmakers to put their energy into passing legislation that would really help the people rather than trying to undermine the authority of the Executive.

    “Do not waste your time on self-serving legislative initiatives, such as eliminating term limits from the Constitution. Service to the people is my first priority,” Ruto continued by stating.

    He said it was a bad idea and that his priority was keeping his campaign promises.

    The President emphasized the need of passing legislation that would help implement Kenya Kwanza’s agenda.
    Salah Yakub, a member of Parliament for Fafi, backed proposals to prolong Ruto’s rule to 2042 a week before Ruto’s remarks.

    According to Yakub, a group of lawmakers associated with Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza party was set on instituting an age restriction of 75 as a replacement for the current two-term limit. Thus, the concept advocated for Ruto to remain in power for a full two decades.

    But UDA dissociated itself from Yakub’s views, saying that his ambitions and positions were his own as an individual MP.
