Moses Kuria hits out at Raila for calling for introduction of rotational Presidency

11 July 2016, 14:35 Samuel Arap Yego

Nairobi - Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria has sharply criticized Coalition of reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader, Raila Odinga for calling for the introduction of a rotational presidency system in the country.

The lawmaker hit out at the former premier noting that the move will be undemocratic as it will see a person who doesn't have majority support become President.

"It is shocking that Raila is now making a U-turn by calling for a rotational presidency, when his coalition purports to be anchored on democratic ideals, " said Kuria.

On Friday during the homecoming party of Suna East Junet Mohamed, the ODM leader made a proposal that presidency should be rotational, saying that would bring peace and cohesion.

"Kenya will be a much better country if the presidency would be rotated among the different communities. It will also give other ethnic groups a chance to lead instead of the position being held by people from central and rift valley," said Raila during the rally.

But the legislator who spoke to journalists in Nairobi Monday faulted the suggestion, noting that a community does not make one a head of state.

"Democracy is letting the will of the majority prevail. Unless the meaning of the term has changed. Raila's suggestion should be ignored with the contempt it deserves," said the MP.
