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.
The same Constitution, however, states that the sole way to remove a president is through the Parliament.
A Head of State can be removed on one of two grounds.
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.
A member of the National Assembly, supported by at least a quarter of all the members, may move a motion for the investigation of the President’s physical or mental capacity to perform the functions of the office of the presidency.
