Governors Anyang Ngong’o (Kisumu), Alfred Mutua (Machakos) and Muhammed Kuti (Isiolo). Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader, Alfred Mutua has reaffirmed his resolve to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta as Kenya’s fifth president and assured the nation he will reveal his coalition partners at the right time.Dr Mutua also threw a challenge to fellow political leaders to utilize the current time and opportunity in serving Kenyans through promoting transformative development and positive social cohesion. The Machakos Governor, who joined his Kisumu and Isiolo counterparts, Anyang Ngong’o and Muhammed Kuti, respectively at the launch of model community health program in Isiolo on Thursday urged leaders eyeing the presidency come 2022 to focus on positive development agenda and shun divisive politics.“I urge my colleagues who also have ambitions to declare as they have but to first concentrate on developing the country and not spend their energies in endless campaigns and stealing of government resources that some are engaged in,” he said.Mutua noted it was possible for political leaders to state their political ambitions without necessarily tearing the country apart through toxic utterances and divisive politics.
“In 2022 I will vie to become the 5th President of Kenya. There is nothing wrong with that. But I am not consumed by a desperate campaign and politicisation that is slowing down our economic growth,” said Mutua, who is also the Machakos Governor.Mutua said his priority was to preach unity for all Kenyans and deliver services to the electorate. He warned wananchi against being lured with stolen money.“We are, however, not touring the country polarizing our people. When the time is right, we will present ourselves to Kenyans and offer the better alternative. However, in the meantime, Kazi ya wananchi kwanza (service to citizens first).He went on, “They can quietly organize themselves without tearing the country apart. I am personally in serious discussions with critical leaders for a strong partnership come 2022 elections. Our coalition of like-minded and motivated leaders will be one whose interest is Kenyans first.He heaped praises on his host, Governor Kuti and lauded his government’s initiative of working towards transforming Isiolo’s health care system.
“Congratulations Governor Kuti for a job well done and for caring about your people. We will continue to work together, share ideas and change the mentality of Kenya toward better lives for our people,” he said.
