Nairobi - The National Movement for Democracy Advancement (NMDA) is seeking a constitutional ammendment to all the heads of the three arms of government namely the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary to retire at the age of 70.
The Standard reports that the lobby group has launched a change-the-constitution campaign to block former Prime Minister Raila Odinga from contesting in the next presidential elections in 2017.
The NMDA Convener, Njiru Kimaru said that it was unfair to have only the head of the Judiciary retiring at the age of 70 and exclude the President and the Speaker, and if their push if their move is successful, then Raila will not be eligible to vie as he will be 72 years old.
