Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has maintained that he will be on the ballot on August 9 as a presidential candidate.
The Governor on Monday kicked off his campaigns in Gatanga, central Kenya, and he will be moving to other parts of the country to ask Kenyans to support his presidential bid.
The two-term governor at the same dismissed those asking him to step down because his community, Kikuyu, has produced three presidents in the history of Kenya.
He insisted that he has the right to run for any elective position and that Kenyans, not a few individuals, are the ones who decide through voting.
Wa Iria called on Kikuyu community to rally behind him the same way other candidates have been backed by their candidates.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
