Mbadi Compares Ruto & Uhuru in Terms of Ammending the Constitution as He Alleges What Ruto Might Do

LSK has criticized President Ruto's push to amend the Constitution, terming the move unconstitutional. LSK has also claimed that Ruto wants to revive the rejected BBI route.

Speaking yesterday in Nairobi, the Law Society of Kenya president Eric Theuri called on the National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula and Members of Parliament to block the proposal made by William Ruto. Theuri said that changing the Constitution isn't a priority for the citizens considering that they are battling the high cost of living.

Eric Theuri further accused President William Ruto of re-introducing BBI that Supreme Court had already declared unconstitutional.

"The amendments are being initiated by the President contrary to the decision in the BBI case and therefore they should not see the light of day in Parliament." Eric Theuri said.

The LSK's criticism on the constitutional amendment process comes days after Raila Odinga called out President Ruto for allegedly appropriating proposals from BBI as his own.

The Nominated Member of Parliament John Mbadi has also alleged that William Ruto's efforts to amend the constitution are strange as compared to that of the former president Uhuru Kenyatta. Uhuru had pushed for constitutional amendment at the end of his second term. Mbadi further alleged that Ruto could be testing the water before coming up with a more serious proposal.

"Ruto is barely six months in office and is starting to initiate a constitutional amendment. Maybe he is testing the water. Tomorrow he may come up with something else that he wants to amend the Constitution and remove the term limit of the President," John Mbadi alleged.
