He argues that the President and the DP have served a joint term and should, therefore, retire together.

“These are things we need to start discussing now. Is it possible, for instance, for the President now, after serving two terms, to then go back and say he wants to be elected as deputy president?” Mr Murathe asked.

POLITICAL FORMATION

The legal questions aside, central in Mr Murathe’s plan is a political answer — a monumental party, or coalition, that he says will have all the big political actors in Kenya.

He named ODM leader Raila Odinga, Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Kanu chairman Gideon Moi as possible members of the “formation.”

“If Raila or Kalonzo wants to team up with Uhuru in a political formation, and they are not comfortable to hook up as long as so and so are part of it, then you are looking at maybe an entirely different formation,” Mr Murathe said.

Meanwhile, Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui has called for a stop to the 2022 debate. “This is not the path we should take as a nation,” Governor Kinyanjui said.
