I will front Matiang’i as running mate in 2022, Kuria says

The Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said he is contemplating fronting Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i as his presidential running mate in 2022.

Speaking in Nyamira where he joined Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka and area legislators for a funds drive for Nyanturago Catholic Church, Kuria said he was a popular candidate because he shares common leadership traits with Dr Matiang'i.

“I am assuring you that your son (Matiang'i) who is now the Prime Minister will be my running mate in 2022 and you know very well that in Kenya, it's only me and him who does not tolerate nonsense and we will make things happen in the country,” he said.

The Speaker of the Senate on his part urged politicians to concentrate on serving needs of the people who elected them.

Lusaka said the country will not move forward if politics will continue dominating the country at a time when the main focus should be on development agenda.
