Sharks Taste Blood. Governors Planning A Referendum To Allow Them Rule To For Life


Governors Planning A Referendum To Allow Them Rule For Life

Running out of options as most of them near the end of their second terms, governors want to remove the clause of the Constitution that limits their rule to two terms hence allow them to seek re-election as many times as they wish.

A draft document that has been prepared by a special committee on behalf of the Council of Governors seeks to pose the question on whether the county bosses should be allowed to contest for election in the same position beyond their ten year limit or not.

According to the governors, it is unfair to limit their terms while Members of County Assemblies, senators and members of parliament do not have any limits on their terms.

The special committee being co-chaired by Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana and his Meru County counterpart Kiraitu Murungi has met once since its establishment in October last year. They are expected to meet in two weeks time to firm up their proposals.

The chairman of the Council of Governors and the governor of Kakamega County Wycliffe Oparanya has said he has not seen the draft document but once he sees it he will present it to all governors during an organized retreat so that they can adopt a common position on the matter.

The eleven member team intends to also present its proposals to the Building Bridges Committee. Other members of the team are Joyce Laboso, Professor Anyang Nyong'o, Francis Kimemia, Captain Ali Roba, Cornell Rasanga, Paul Chepkwony, Wycliffe Oparanya, Amason Kingi and Charity Ngilu.

The governors are also seeking to significantly reduce the power of MCAs and their ability to impeach governors. The governors plan to use the referendum to clip the wings of MCAs they have referred to as rogue in numerous occasions.
