IEBC Releases the Schedule for Rotational Presidency

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has released the schedule of rotational presidency that will be used in Kenya from August 2022.

Responding to ‘public’ demand for a better system of sharing the national cake, the Commission said that it was going to organize a form of rotational presidency that will see each community enjoy the presidency for a period of ten years, instead of two communities running the country for 58 years.

In the schedule that our reporter was able to access, IEBC has a schedule that runs for 400 years and all the communities are represented. Here is the schedule.
