Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero is the latest to declare his desire to vie for the presidency in 2022.

Dr Kidero, who yesterday expressed confidence that he will recapture the gubernatorial seat in the next year’s General Election, said his eyes will be fixed on the country’s top job come 2022.

“It is just a matter of time. When I am done with my two terms as stipulated in the law, the only seat remaining is that of the country’s top leadership,” he said.

The governor urged Kenyans elect leaders who can change their lives and not to vote for people who have no convincing manifestos but who hide behind tribal curtains.

“It is evident that many leaders want positions, but unfortunately some are out just to have them for their own benefit,” said Kidero.
