MPs New Bid To Reduce Ruto's Powers, Push Creation Of 73 Constituencies Leaks

The Constitutional Implementation Oversight Committee, chaired by Ndaragua Member of Parliament Jeremiah Kioni, is seeking amendments in the promulgated 2010 Constitution to; reduce Deputy President's powers, creat new 73 constituencies and introduce the position of Prime Minister.

According to the bill, the lawmakers want to cut Deputy President William Ruto to size by stripping his office of its constitutionally guaranteed security of tenure. The Kioni's proposed legislation now demands the creation of two positions of DP and have them serve at the will of the president. This according to the group aims at curing the current stand off where a Deputy President cannot see eye to eye with the President.

The proposed Bill also wants additional of 73 new Constituencies created before 2022 August Polls. Should this is passed, then the number of constituencies will jump from 290 to 363.

The Bill has also proposed creation of the positions of Prime Minister and two deputies in what appears to be an attempt to salvage the Building Bridges Initiative, BBI.
