"I Do Not Support That Nonsense" Herman Manyora Dismisses Proposal by an ODM MP

Countable days after Budalangi Member of Parliament Raphael Wanjala said that the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp was thinking of coming up with an amendment to the constitution to ensure rotational presidency, Political Observer Herman Manyora has dismissed such a proposal.

According to Wanjala, the country has more than 40 tribes, and it cannot be that the Kenyans will be ruled by only the Kalenjins and Kikuyus since independence, and that the best way to solve another round of the leadership by the two communities was to bring on board rotational presidency.

The idea was first proposed in January 2021 by the Former President Uhuru Kenyatta who had then given all signs that he was not going to support the now President William Ruto in the August 9th 2022 polls.

Through his You Tube on Tuesday, Manyora said that the presidents of Kenya did not get elected because they come from the two communities, but because of how they played their politics, terming rotational presidency as 'nonsense.'

"I do not support that rotational nonsense. I just support a clean election, that produces a clear winner be it a Kikuyu or a Kalenjin, and Kenyans do not gang up against tribal lines."

"We need an election where people do not have question on foreigners allegedly interfering with our elections. However, the idea of Kikuyu and Kalenjins is something that we cannot run away from."

Listen to Manyora, from minute 13.
