Why David Murathe is Uhuru Kenyatta’s ‘cow-dung’

David Murathe

Speaking on Saturday during the burial of Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju’s brother, Kefa, in Rarieda, Murathe maintained that Ruto should retire together with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“And we are not joking, we will go to the supreme court. All I can tell you is that, at least now people have started to sober up. We have heard them say they don’t mind nominations. There is no chest-thumping,”declared Murathe.

Murathe reiterated his stance that the presidency is a pair and under the Constitution, the DP cannot seek a new term in 2022 as he will have already served the maximum two terms together with President Kenyatta.

“Section 148 of the Constitution sub-section 5 says nobody can run for deputy president for more than two terms,” he said.

The Jubilee vice chair added that section 145 equally prohibits the President from vying for more than two terms.

“Can the President sack his deputy? No. So, if he (DP) automatically becomes the President (in case the president is incapacitated), without going for the mandate of the people, what mandate does he have? It is the one he was elected with the President.”
