UDA distances itself from Senator Cherargei's proposal to increase presidential term limit
In a statement by its Secretary General Cleophas Malala, the party said it respects the Senator's personal views but does not reflect the position of UDA.
"The UDA Party respects and upholds the Senator's personal views but particularly on the referenced subject, those views do not reflect the perspectives of the UDA Party and/or its Party Leader, H.E. President William Ruto. The President solemnly swore to respect, uphold and defend the Constitution which is abundantly clear and categorial on the Presidential term limit," Malala said.
He termed Cherargei's views as superfluous and peripheral.
"The Ruling Party is presently focused on delivering on itspromises to the People of Kenya, mindful that it shall in due course submit its scorecard for the people to evaluate. In doing so, we are guided by the timeline to the next general election," Malala added.
Cherargei had submitted a memorandum to the bipartisan talks team led by Azimio's Kalonzo Musyoka and Kenya Kwanza's Kimani Ichung'wah, proposing the increase in the term limit to allow the president have enough time to deliver on his pledges.
The proposal has been vehemently opposed across the political divide.
