DP Rigathi To Be Blocked From Becoming President As A Million Signature Drive Begins

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua's dreams to ascend to presidency in 2032 just like his boss, Dr. William Ruto are now in a brink to be shattered as lobby group now starts a move to amend the 2010 constitution, to bar Deputy Presidents from vying.

Driving their interest from the current Head of State who became the Deputy President for nine years before being elected to Presidency office, the lobby group led by lawyer, Fred Ogola wants DPs to stay out of government for one term before being allowed to vie again.

"We want the deputy president to serve the president and wait for five years outside government before they return to vie for presidency just like US President Joe Biden did. He served Barack Obama until 2016 and then contested for the top seat in 2020," Ogola said.
