ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi has hinted at the possibility of choosing a running mate from the Mt Kenya Region.
In a radio interview, Musalia Mudavadi said Mt Kenya people are experienced politically, given the number of times they have produced presidents going by the political history of the region, they cannot be ignored in the 2022 succession matrix.
“There’s a lot of experience in the region. They are people who love doing business and can contribute a lot to the economy and the nation. So, I’m not saying no, there’s a possibility. I will continue persuading them to support my bid since from the look of things, there is no strong Presidential Candidate from Mt Kenya this time round as we speak,” Said Mudavadi.
The Party Leader told the Inooro FM listeners that his administration will focus on reviving the dwindling fortunes of the agriculture economy with more focus being the coffee and tea sectors.
Equally, Musalia Mudavadi maintained that he will work with all governors to strengthen more devolution and ensure more resources to the countries and their prudent use.
Calling on Kenyans to elect leaders of integrity, Mudavadi said the country has been on a wrong trajectory and time has come for the citizens to vote in leaders based on the ideals and values they stand for and not on tribal lenses.

“What is the face behind the name of a leader you want to vote in as your President? Is he angry, a thief or corrupt? If you elect an angry leader, he will administer in anger and when he administers in anger, he will hurt the ordinary citizens,” he quoted.
