As president, William Ruto has proposed constitutional amendments to "enrich Kenya's democratic experience," but this goal has been met with widespread opposition.
Roselyn Akombe, a former commissioner of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, has voiced her disagreement with Ruto's proposed Constitutional amendment. Rumor has it that the President personally requested his Kenya Kwanza supporters to back a bill that would establish an office for Raila Odinga, the head of the opposition party. It has come to light that the motion has already been accepted and is ready for debate in the parliament by Moses Wetangula, the Speaker of the National Assembly.
Roselyn took to Twitter to express her disapproval of the President's recent actions. She claimed that he would prioritize easing economic stress if it became clear that people in Kenya were struggling to put food on the table. Roselyn argued that constitutional changes should not be made in order to appease a political elite. What about an office space for Raila?
