Future deputy presidents are likely to suffer a huge blow of the current proposals by the Members of Parliament will finally be adopted by the August House.

In the proposals, the Members of the National Assembly deportmental committee on Legal Affairs recommends that the Head of State should have powers to hire and fire their principal assistants.

They have noted that this will help to the repetition of a situation like the one that Kenya is currently in where the deputy president William Ruto is not in good terms with his boss president Uhuru Kenyatta.

If the Constitutional Implementation Oversight Committee through their chairperson Ndaragwa Constituency Member of Parliament Honourable Jeremiah Kioni manages to convince Members of Parliament to adopt the recommended law, the current deputy president William Ruto will not be affected.

“The rationale of the amendments is to ensure stability in government by ensuring the deputy president supports the agenda of the President and realise the national values and principles of governance,” Kioni states.

However, they seem to try and save the president to be elected from a situation where they will not be in good terms with their deputies which jeopardises the smooth running of the government.
