In Summary
  • The eloquent professor of law said he had no intentions to retreat in his ambition.
  • Mr Mbiuki said they would campaign for the senator across the country.

Tharaka-Nithi Senator-elect Prof Kithure Kindiki has revived his interest in the 2022 presidential race saying Deputy President William Ruto will pick him as a running-mate by the end of this year.

Speaking during the swearing in ceremony of Tharaka-Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki on Friday, Prof Kindiki claimed he will be endorsed at a ceremony to be held in his home village of Mukothima.

“On December 9, 2017, Kenya will be addressed from Mukothima village and this is when we will officially start the journey to State House with Mr Ruto,” said the senator.

AMBITION

He said the event will be attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr Ruto, Jubilee senators, governors, MPs and hundreds of MCAs from across the country.

Prof Kindiki said Mr Kenyatta had already agreed to hand over the country’s leadership to them and for the first time, Tharaka community and Mount Kenya East at large would host the second powerful office in the republic.

The eloquent professor of law said he had no intentions to retreat in his ambition and that he would never again seek county leadership but battle it out with other politicians for the country’s top leadership.

NEXT ELECTIONS

“As I said during my campaign trail, I will not come to you again seeking county leadership since I am headed to Nairobi to fight for the State House,” he said.

Prof Kindiki’s sentiments were unanimously supported by other county leaders led by Maara MP-elect Kareke Mbiuki and Women Representative Beatrice Nkatha who vowed to drum for his support.

Mr Mbiuki said they would campaign for the senator across the country.
