Monday 13th. March 2023 marked six months since President William Ruto's inauguration as the president of the Republic of Kenya and also the ultimatum lawfully given to former President Uhuru Kenyatta to disengage in any political parties in order to receive his retirement package.
However details have emerged on why the former head of State may still find it hard to receive his retirement package. His political activeness as the Azimio La Umoja chairman is a key factor that may block President Uhuru Kenyatta but is still limited due to the finance Act 2022 that was passed while he was still the President.
According to the sources it has been established that Uhuru can lawfully resign from any party politics but still has a right to associate politically and even give political orders.
However, the MPs can pass a bill in parliament to block him from his package should they table a motion and obtain 233 of majority of memebrship inorder to pass the bill.
Other way is also if the President is convicted of any criminal offence and jail term of more than three years without fine or ceasing to hold office due to gross misconduct or violation of the Constitution.
Uhuru however seems unbothered with packages that the constitution in Section 6(1) allows him to be entitled to as the retired President.
