Is President Kenyatta Ready To Sack His DP President William Ruto After Details Emerge?

A new bill aimed at giving president Uhuru Kenyatta powers to sack his Deputy has finally reached the floor of the house.

According to the bill tabled by the Parliamentary Constitution, Implementation and oversight committee(CIOC), the head of state will have the power to send off his deputy at his own will.

However, for the bill to be passed into action, one-third of all members of the National Assembly and Senate have to support the motion during the parliamentary session. This is in contrary to the usual requirement for approval of a bill that normally rely on the two-third rule approval.

This power existed some periods back before it was scrapped after the promulgation of the 2010 constitution. However, before it was scrapped, the president had all the powers to send away his deputy from the office at any time. This is the reason why the late former president Daniel Moi had several vice presidents during his reign.

Suppose the bill is passed, do you think his excellency president Uhuru Mwigai Kenyatta can send off his Deputy with this remaining few months to the next general elections?
