Justice minister Eugene Wamalwa has appealed to presidential aspirants from Western Province to consider backing him for the seat.
Mr Wamalwa said he is better placed to win the presidency in the General Election.
The New Ford- Kenya presidential aspirant said he has substantial numbers and asked the aspirants to join his bandwagon to succeed President Kibaki.
“I am confident of winning the race and I call upon my brothers interested in the seat to step down in favour of me since I have the numbers across the country,” said the Saboti MP. Speaking at Kitale Main Bus Park, Wamalwa assured his supporters his name will be on the ballot. “Ignore allegations that I am people’s project. I’m contesting the presidency on my own feet and I will not play second fiddle,” he said.
He said Kenya needs generational change and he was the right person to lead the country to prosperity.
“It is through generational change that the county will achieve desirable reforms. Trust me, I will deliver the inspiration of Kenyans,’ he said. The Justice minister who was distributing cheques worth Sh10 million towards various development projects in his Saboti constituency said he will prioritise the war against poverty if elected.
The minister has begun a series of political rallies to popularise New Ford Kenya in Trans-Nzoia County.
