Kenya’s President Dr William Samoei Ruto has broken ranks with Uganda’s peer, Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s gospel to the effect that presidential term limits lock away good leaders, The Investigator reports.
Dr Ruto doesn’t mince words by dismissing as selfish, such clamor by one of the MPs subscribing to his own Party. “Do not spend your time pushing for selfish and self-serving proposals like the removal of term limits. My focus is service to the people,” Ruto unambiguously responds to the calls by one of the legislators subscribing to the ruling Party to scrap the presidential term limits.
Yakub Salah, an MP for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), had opportunistically started the clamor for the removal of the presidential term limits from the Kenyan Republic Constitution, perhaps, hoping Ruto will welcome the same and reward him. In the characteristic opportunistically blackmail style, Yakub had gone ahead to claim how a good number of party members are in favor of his proposal.
He didn’t disclose, however, who is in favor of the proposal among the ruling party members and for exactly what reason. All he said is that the presidential terms limits deny the country the opportunity to be led by an able and beloved president. But now that the main beneficiary of the plot has rejected the same, we wait to see how Yakub is going to proceed from there.
