TITLE: MP Gabriel Kagombe submits a motion to parliament to stop Uhuru Kenyatta's retirement benefits

In a significant development in African politics, Gabriel Kagombe, a Member of Parliament representing Gatundu South, has presented a motion to the National Assembly to reject the retirement benefits of former Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta.

As per Section 6(1) of the Presidential Retirement Benefits Act, a former president is not authorized to hold any elective office for a period exceeding six months after their tenure in office has ended. Uhuru Kenyatta, who is the head of the Jubilee Party, has been given until March 13, 2023, to step down from office, according to the Azimio La Umoja, a partner party of the One Kenya Coalition Party.

It should be noted that Uhuru Kenyatta is receiving a monthly pension and other perks for continuing in politics after his retirement. However, the National Assembly would require a supermajority to take away his benefits
