Fafi MP Salah Yakub has revealed plans by a section of the United Democratic Alliance Party (UDA) lawmakers to amend the constitution to scrap the two-ter presidential limit.
Daily Nation's report reveals that some UDA lawmakers are already working on a constitutional amendment Bill to replace the two-term limit with an age limit of 75 years.
According to the plan, the legislators allied to President William Ruto-led party want the presidential limit capped on age, not the service period.

If the controversial plan succeeds, Ruto would have a chance to rule for 20 years, bearing in mind that he is just 55.
The amendment would make it possible for Ruto to contest in 2027, 2032 and 2037 elections if the term limits are replaced with the age limit.
However, the plan has angered Kenyans who feel the lawmakers are not concerned with the country's problems.
Regarding the controversial plan, outspoken lawyer Miguna Miguna warned that it would easily make Ruto a one-term president if he supports the amendment.

Known for his sharp criticism against the UDA leader, Mutua had claimed Ruto, who was then seeking to succeed former president Uhuru Kenyatta, would abolish term limits should he ascends to power.
Taking to Twitter, the US-based political analyst claimed Ruto would create a deeply corrupt one-man dictatorship and one-party ethnostate, a sovereign state in which citizenship is restricted to members of a particular racial or ethnic group.
