February 14th, 2019 1 min read

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to support his 2022 presidential bid.

In a series of tweets, the flamboyant Governor also took a swipe at Kalonzo for seemingly encouraging President Kenyatta’s continued stay in power.

Kalonzo recently backed President Kenyatta’s continued stay in power beyond his current term, and Mutua says this implies the former Vice president is not serious about his own presidential ambitions.

Mutua also said that time has come for the youth of Kenya to aspire for political office.

Kalonzo has on two separate occasions in recent times seen to advocate for extension President Kenyatta’s rule, either as President or a Prime Minister under a new constitutional dispensation.

Mutua however says he expects President Kenyatta to retire.

Mutua is serving his second term as Governor and is barred by the constitution from vying for that particular office.

He has announced repeatedly announced his intention to succeed Kenyatta, while seemingly opening up an affront against Musyoka.
