UDA CEO Now Reveals What Ruto Plans to do Once His Second Term Ends in 2032

Another top UDA official has confirmed that President William Ruto doesn't intend to stay in power for longer than required by the law.

This comes on the heels of an alleged plot to go against this this by altering the constitution to do away with the ten-year ruling requirement.

But UDA CEO Nahashon Odanga has denied these allegations, noting that the party has not discussed anything of the sort and is more than willing to work with the current constitutional demands.

He has said that Ruto is a law abiding man who is ready to retire and go home once he completes his term, in the event he secures a re-election in 2027.

“What the MP said is not the position of the party. Our president is a law-abiding citizen. UDA party NEC has not had sittings for a while, a matter of that nature would come up at such a meeting,” he told Citizen Digital in an exclusive interview on Wednesday.

He added that UDA will lead the way in seeing to it that Ruto serves for only ten years.

“I can confirm that as a party we have not had such a conversation to extend the term limit of a sitting president. Our constitution foresees a situation in which a sitting president can only serve for two terms, then leave office,” he added.

The said plan to hand Ruto more years at the helm has been condemned by opposition politicians, who claim that he is trying to initiate life presidency.
