Machakos Governor Alfred Mutual will vie for the presidency in 2022.
Mutua announced his grand entry to the country’s top seat on Wednesday during the 13th annual primary school heads meet in Mombasa.
“I’m planning to shock Kenya in the next few years,” he said
The former government spokesperson said his track record will hand him easy victory in the next general elections.
“I will show you what I’m capable of doing.” Mutua added.
Mutua however urged aged politicians to quit the stage for emerging young and charismatic leaders a statement one could easily deduce it was directed to Raila Odinga.
The Maendeleo Chap Chap leader defeated Wiper candidate Wavinya Ndeti to retain his seat but the win is being challenged in court.
Mutua’s steady rise, especially after the formation of MCC party, threatened Kalonzo Musyoka’s grip in Ukambani region, pundits said.
Mutua has been a Jubilee “darling” and his declaration is likely to spark a feud with Deputy President William Ruto who is targeting the vote-rich Eastern region.
