The Only Way Ruto Can Be Removed From The Statehouse

To oust President William Ruto from office, Azimio leader Raila Odinga has started a petition that must receive 10 million signatures by next week.

He argued that Kenyans have to constitutionally reclaim their right to self-government from the Kwanza regime.

He cited the Constitution’s Article 1 clauses 1 and 2.

All sovereign authority belongs to the Kenyan people, and it may only be used in line with this Constitution, the document declares. The people’s right to self-government may be used either directly or through democratically chosen representatives.

If at least two-thirds of all the members of the Senate vote to uphold any impeachment charge, the President shall cease to hold office.
