Duale move that could make Raila odinga president

There has been debate on locking out older leaders from presidency.
A law which is currently in Parliament wants to limit the age limit for presidential candidates to 72.
This means that NASA leader and main opposition leader Raila odinga will be locked out of presidency come 2022.
National Assembly Leader of Majority Aden Duale on Tuesday opposed the age limit petition on the presidency.
The Garissa Township MP termed the petition unconstitutional and asserted that the petition would be thrown out as soon as it is presented in parliament.
He exclaimed: "What is before the House is a petition, and the Justice and Legal Affairs committee will throw it out for being unconstitutional."

Duale opposed the move saying anybody by law can vie for presidency despite their age.
If passed Raila odinga will have is fifth stab on presidency having lost 4 in a row.

Odinga has never accepted defeat despite always losing by a great margin.
He will face deputy president William Ruto who is equally a shrewd politician.
