In Summary

  • According to Ouda, the title of President and Deputy President is one and the same.
  • He urged his fellow legislators to keenly study the Constitution before vilifying him.
  • Ouda further noted that he would table the motion again before Parliament after the required 60-day lapse.

Kisumu Central MP Fred Ouda has said he will seek the court’s interpretation of a flopped motion he presented in Parliament to have DP William Ruto barred from running for president.

In his motion, Ouda had called for the amendment to the Constitution to bar Mr. Ruto from vying for the presidency in the next general election.

” I will not be intimidated by the comments that were made by Parliamentarians when the motion was rejected,” a defiant Ouda said.

Speaking to the Press in Kisumu on Monday, Ouda insisted that the motion was not targeting anybody in particular.

Uhuru, Ruto one and the same

According to him, the title of President and Deputy President is one and the same so when the duo vies for election and their 10-year tenure ends, they should both not run for reelection.

He urged his fellow legislators to keenly study the Constitution before vilifying him.

Ouda further noted that he would table the motion again before Parliament after the required 60-day lapse but with amendments.
