Kenyan cleric announces presidential bid

The number of people eyeing Kenya's presidency continues to rise with less than a year to the 2022 general elections.

The latest to throw himself in the ring is Bishop Zablon Mbugua of the Divine Movement for Leadership in Kenya party.

Bishop Mbugua has claimed that he is the right person to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, blaming poor leadership for the country's problems like rampant corruption, joblessness, etc.

“As members of a different faith, we now have this platform of shared values for restorative change. The clergy must now rise to give the country direction where politicians have failed,” said Mbugua.

The man in clothe appointed Mohammed Karama as his running mate.

The Biblical Pentecostal Apostolic Church bishop is the second man of God to declare his interest in the top post.

Gospel Singer Reuben Kigame announced his candidature in April. His agenda will be based on 'Reset Kenya' and 'Make Kenya Great Again' mottos.

"Kenya is in a bad place and if we do not courageously challenge the rot we are in at the moment, we will have ourselves to blame and future generations will not forgive us for letting them down,” he said.
