executive department, term limit, constitutional amendment, Kenyan government, executive branch

The executive branch is the most influential branch of the Kenyan government. Kenya’s president serves as both head of state and head of government. The president is elected by the people for a five-year term, and a 1991 constitutional amendment established a two-term limit for the presidency. To become president, a candidate must simultaneously run for president and for a seat in parliament and must win both elections. The president appoints a cabinet of ministers, each of whom heads an executive department of the government, and a vice president, who is also a member of the cabinet.
