A heated debate was watched in the country barely a week ago after Kenya Kwanza allied Fafi member of parliament Yakub Salah lifted lid on the need to lengthen president's term limit in office.
According to the one term legislator who said that this is an issue he has discussed with a number of lawmakers, there was need to do away with two term limit and replace it with maximum age limit of 75 years.
So according to the controversial lawmaker, a president should be in the office provided he has not attained the age of 75. Yakub's proposal was met with greater opposition while some people also welcomed the idea.
While speaking to TV 47 this morning, Azimio allied Kacheliba member of parliament Titus Lotee now says that it is Kenyans who are pushing politicians representing them to make such changes in the constitution.
"If politicians are starting to talk about term limits, there are Kenyans pushing politicians to do that. Politicians will not do anything not driven by the people who elected them."- MP Titus Lotee (Kacheliba)
