Secession talk has dominated and excited Kenyans- especially pro-Opposition supporters-thanks to economist Dr David Ndii who called for the creation of the People Republic of Kenya.
According to a draft bill by Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma, 40 counties will form the People Republic of Kenya (PRK) with the other seven counties to constitute the Central Republic of Kenya.
The 40 counties that will make up PRK are:
Rift: Turkana, West Pokot, Samburu, Trans Nzoia, Uasin Gishu, Elgeyo-Marakwet, Nandi, Baringo, Laikipia, Nakuru, Narok, Kajiado, Kericho, and Bomet.
Coast: Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi, Tana River, Lamu, and Taita Taveta
North Eastern: Garissa, Wajir, and Mandera
Eastern: Marsabit, Isiolo, Meru, Kitui, Machakos, and Makueni
Nyanza-Siaya, Kisumu, Homa Bay, Migori, Kisii, Nyamira, with Nairobi City
Western-Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, and Busia
To avoid a situation where the country is ruled by populous tribes only, the PRK leadership is planning to have rotational presidency. This system will ensure every region will at one point in time head the government.
The 40 counties will be collapsed into seven Federal States. These States will produce a candidate on rotational basis to run for presidency. This will ensure that every region in the People Republic of Kenya produces a President.
Here is the list of the States:
Upper Eastern State
Lower Eastern State
It is expected the first President will be from Nyanza, Eastern and the other Federal States will follow suit.
