Kenya’s Presidential aspirant Dr Alfred Mutua has revealed that he is hesitant to release his manifesto to stop opponents from stealing it.
The second-term Governor is one of the leaders eyeing to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta whose term expires next year.
Others are former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, deputy president William Ruto, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, among others.
Speaking during an interview on the local television on Thursday, Dr Mutua rubbished some of the promises unveiled by his competitors.
“I am seeing promises that have nothing to do with stimulating growth, I am not seeing ideas about our consumer-driven economy... ideas to generate more revenue to meet the demands, we have debts to pay,” said the Governor.
Mutua said his manifesto will cover ways of stimulating growth, a consumer-driven economy and ideas to generate more revenue.
“I don’t want to talk about them now because some people keep on copying what I say,” he added.
“Elections are all about empty promises but the most important is ability. Are these people who are running for president, myself included, do we have the ability to transform Kenya into a Singapore... a South Korea... like a western country? Or are they running for the sake of power?” posed Mutua.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
