MP Yakub explains why he proposed the presidential limit extended.
Fafi constituency MP Yakub explains why he proposed the presidential limit extended during a food drive at Garissa.
His remarks sparked a huge uproar on social media, the better part of november 8.
Speaking during an interview at NTV, Salah Yakub maintained that he wanted the Kenyan presidential limit extended.
He stated that the presidential limit should be extended for the well good of Kenyans.
He said,”If you have a cook in your home and he or she works well, you can’t just wake up one morning and decide to change them.
“We looked at Kibaki who did a very good job for the 10 years but the Constitution capped him. Some of us were for the idea that should he have served for another term, we could have gone on another level,” he added.
He added that it is not a matter of who runs the government, It is how they serve Kenyans.
He said, It is happening in Europe, like Denmark and Germany. It’s not an issue of changing the personnel but the delivery of goods.”
However, yesterday the United Democratic Alliance party and Kenya kwanza allies, distanced themselves from the remarks by Yakub.
They stated that the utterances were his own personal sentiments.
UDA stated,”Remarks by Fafi MP Salah Yakub that there are plans to extend term limits for the President are a product of a fertile imagination by the legislator.UDA distances itself from the utterances by the MP.”
