Former Taita-Taveta Woman Representative Joyce Lay is under fire from Kenyans online after she declared she will push for the extension of President Kenyatta’s term.
In a tweet, Ms. Lay indicated that she would push for the amendment of the law to allow Kenyatta to lead the nation as president for a third term. Kenya is safer with Kenyatta as president than anyone else, according to her.
