Kenya’s National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has refuted claims that unnamed influential individuals have fronted him to vie for the presidency.
According to him, he is eyeing the top seat like any other candidate noting that he does not to be pushed by anybody to vie for the presidency.
He has also laughed at familiar narratives that only some individuals should be on the ballot for the country’s top seat.
“We cannot have certain dominant names every election year, especially in the race for the presidency. This seat is for every Kenyan. That is why I made an announcement that I will be vying for president,” said Muturi.
The speaker noted that he would only engage those who want to serve Kenyans and have high integrity in forming political alliances.
“It is not just enough to say you are coalescing, the coalitions should be people-driven. It is good for politicians and political parties to meet and form a coalition, but you must have the interest of people at heart,” he added.
Muturi has revealed that he would soon begin touring across the country to sell his manifesto to the electorates.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
