Nairobi - An ODM MP has drafted a Bill that seeks to block Kikuyus and Kalenjins out of Presidency.
Nominated MP Zuleikha Hassan wants articles 137 and 142 of the Constitution amended in order to provide for rotational Presidency.
This, according to The Star, will lock out communities that have already served in the top office from vying and hence promote regional balance.

If approved, this amendment will prevent President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto from running in the 2017 and 2022 Presidential elections respectively.
Kenya has been ruled by the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities since independence.
