Tuesday October 23, 2018-Kakamega Senator, Cleophas Malala, has proposed for the creation of Office of the Chief Opposition leader through constitutional amendment, claiming the Deputy President, William Ruto, might need the position come 2022.
Speaking at a Church function in Kakamega, Malala argued the new office will come in hand for Ruto when NASA leader Raila Odinga beats him to become the 5th President of Kenya in 2022.
He told Senate Speaker, Kenneth Lusaka, to reach out to Ruto and Jubilee party leaders to support the referendum to create an office for him before it is too late.
“You never know, Ruto could just need the Official Opposition seat when that time comes.”
“He must support push for referendum for us to create that office for him in advance,” said Malala amid laughter from the congregation.
At the same time, Malala also supported the referendum to expand the Executive.
“We want to restructure the Government and expand the Executive so that all communities can be represented in Government.”
“This will be a good opportunity for any Kenya irrespective of where they come from to become President,” said Malala.
