Odinga said that this could cause a knock on effect of political coups.

Calling on citizens of the African continent he urged them not to encourage presidents to remove term limits.

“These quests for extensions are often couched in a language that portrays a leader’s desire for more time in office as a response to popular demands.

"It has already exploded in Burundi. Blaise Compaoré’s attempt to seek a third term in Burkina Faso was stopped by popular protests that forced him not just to back off, but to leave the country,” Odinga warned.

Meanwhile Nyeri Women Representative, Priscilla Nyokabi has asked Nyeri residents to vote out Governor Nderitu Gachagua next year, saying he has not performed.

Nyokabi said Nyeri needs a better Governor able to propel the county towards prosperity.
