'Governors should be allowed to serve for two uninterrupted terms'

03 June 2015, 17:29 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Subukia MP, Nelson Gaichuhie wants parliament and the senate to amend the constitution and fix the maximum number of terms that a Governor can serve to two terms only.

Gaichuhie said that just like the President who is to serve for only two five-year terms, Governors should also serve for two terms.

Speaking Tuesday evening in Nakuru town, Gaichuhie said that having a fixed term for the Governors will make them deliver on their promises as opposed to when they have an open time of service.

“Some governors have already created a notion that they will rule and be in charge of their counties forever and this can only be addressed by amending the constitution to have a fixed two-term period for them,” said Gaichuhie.

He added, “This will instill some discipline in the governors and make them deliver on their promises within that period and it will also stop the kind of endless politics we are witnessing in the counties.”

Gaichuhie said that governors should be allowed to serve for two consecutive uninterrupted terms so they can fully implement all the projects they initiate.

“If the President is allowed to serve for two terms then the governors who are presidents of the counties should also be allowed to go for two terms,” he said.
