Do you support MPs idea of extending their term beyond 2012?

11 Nov


A move by Kenya’s members of parliament to extend their term to February 2013 has elicited widespread condemnation.

Some MPs have argued that the new constitution has mandated them to extend their stay in parliament.
Is that a genuine argument?

Should they extend their term beyond August 2012?

    Its like many Kenyans never read the constitution they voted for; each one of us should ask this question; in the new constitution when should the next election be held? We could be complaining about 2013 but it might go beyond that, be warned!!!; remember this is a new constitution at work not the old one, its like starting a fresh you know!!! It is not either supporting or not nowadays we ague constitutionally, does the constitution allow the election to be held in 2013? Next time Kenyans we are called to vote for anything, think twice, read it thrice before you jump!!!. Brace yourselves well, no more lounging no mass action or opinion polls, its Is IT Constitutionally right or wrong full-stop.

    Its not morally right for these people in the parliament to be doing what favors them regardless of the repercussion which is to be felt by the common mwananchi, let them wait up to 2012 and leave the parliament honorary for another election, Let them keep aside their greed for money.

    First, this news in itself is not only disturbing but disgusting as well. I hope for a better Kenya, I really do. Since time immemorial, Kenya has been left to the dogs; from colonialism to neocolonialism. The common mwananchi has never been able to enjoy independence. Shame on these greedy persons who call themselves “leaders”.
    ‘Leaders’ as from our traditional stories and tales were unselfish, selfless people who solved real issues in the community and were considered to be heroes; not so for the Kenyan leaders we have had since independence.
    Our hope is in God alone and should never be on mortal man.
    God does not forget his people and he is never deaf to their cries.
