Jeremiah Kioni Introduces Bill That Will See Uhuru Have Powers to Hire and Fire His Deputy

Legislator Jeremiah Kioni has shocked the republic by gaining momentum on a bill that will seek to have the President's powers increased by a great margin. The bill, will see the president given the mandate to hire and fire his Deputy as he so wishes should the bill sail through Parliament.

The bill is said to be gaining momentum in closed circles of Parliament according to a report published by one blogger allied to Deputy President William Ruto. The Constitutional Implementation Oversight Committee has allegedly written to Speaker Justin Muturi of its intent to bring to the house the bill.

It's understood that the bill will also see the President nominate two Vice Presidents if it passes through the house. At the moment, the Jubilee allied Member of Parliament's control the numbers in the August House but it takes more than that to amend the constitution.

The Deputy President William Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta have been at loggerheads over the past one week. The President had dared his Deputy to quit which he reluctantly said he would not as he had also been duly elected by Kenyans.

It will be interesting to see how this bill progresses and what the Deputy President thinks about it.
