MP Makes Important Proposal a Day After Kabando's Big Prediction About Next President

Kenyans have once again been bashed for appearing to have developed the habit of picking bad leaders, resulting in the sorry state the country is currently in.

On Sunday, former Mukurweini MP Kabando Wa Kabando said that this will remain the situation and will be seen repeating itself next year.

He said that next year's presidential elections will be a repeat of the same, and the next president will be one of those implicated in land grabbing sagas.

"Selective WarOnGraft + #bbiDeceit worsened matters. 5th Rais most likely from ones "mentioned" in financial or land scams. Ones inspiring HOPE rank outsiders. Issue thus ain't of 'clean' past but courage to be DIFFERENT moving forward, be a 'Damascus Moment," said the former Assistant Minister.

The same was confirmed by ODM Secretary of Political Affairs Opiyo Wandayi, who says that Kenyans have are the ones behind the graft situation.

In a presser on Monday, he expressed concern that Kenyans are electing corrupt leaders and expecting them to fight the vice, saying that it is time to act.

"Am concerned that as a country we have tended to believe that people of low integrity and the corrupt can implement integrity and anti-corruption laws if elected to office," he said.

The Ugunja Member of Parliament added that he has initiated a push to amend article 6 of the constitution and the election law to ensure that people facing graft charges are not elected to office.

He stated that those whose cases are in court will be barred from being nominated by political parties, until cleared by the courts. Those implicated while in office, he said, will have to relinquish their positions.

"Persons facing graft charges in court will be barred from being nominated as candidates for elective positions," said the ODM party member.
