It is on a beautiful Monday morning and the 2027 politics seems to have just kickstarted on a higher gear.
A proposal by Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei to amend presidential term limit seems to have drawn sharp reactions.
This was after the MP presented a memorandum to the National Dialogue Committee at the Bomas of Kenya seeking to amend the Constitution to extend the presidential term limit in Kenya from five to seven years before the next election.
However, his proposal has faced sharp criticism, with critics saying it could be a ploy to introduce “presidents for life” in the near future.
A section of UDA leaders however say the party or State House has nothing to do with the senator’s proposals and that it was Cherargei’s own proposal.
Do you think the presidency could be behind this sinister move? Will you support a seven-year presidential term?
