I will be on the ballot in 2022, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said.
Speaking during an interview with Hot 96 on Monday, Kuria said he will be on the ballot during the next general election.
“I will still vie for Presidency in 2022. I will be on the ballot,” he said.
Kuria expressed optimism that he would win in a contest against DP William Ruto.
The MP said he was confident he will trounce Ruto in the nomination, but will not mind offering him a deputy position.
“If successful, I will offer Ruto a post in my government,” he said.
Kuria listed his other preferred deputies as ODM leader Raila Odinga and Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana.
His sentiments come just days after reports that he was decamping from Jubilee Party to the Democratic Party.
Ruto’s Mt Kenya allies have withdrawn from his inner circle as signs emerged that power brokers from the region were plotting against his presidential bid.
Details of the latest Mt Kenya machinations emerged as the succession battle took a new turn—President Uhuru Kenyatta publicly denounced the referendum crusade spearheaded by his handshake partner Raila.
The Star established that Mount Kenya MPs, who have been at the forefront of championing the DP’s presidential bid, have beaten a strategic retreat and adopted a wait-and-see attitude.
