Musalia Mudavadi: The reasons I've put off running for president.

After giving up his position as the Amani National Congress's party leader, Prime Cabinet Secretary (PCM) Musalia Mudavadi postponed his run for president and would remain in his current position (ANC). The immediately preceding ANC party head will now concentrate on his State responsibilities, according to party officials, and Lamu Governor Issa Timamy will take over as interim party leader, they informed journalists on Thursday at the Amani House in Nairobi.While Mr. Mudavadi hopes to become president, he will continue to serve in his current position after being appointed by President William Ruto, according to ANC Secretary General Simon Gikuru. In his political career, Mr. Mudavadi has proven that he puts Kenyans' interests first, and he will do the same in his new position. ANC co-deputy party leader captain Abdi Yare responded to the question of whether Mr. Mudavadi will run for president again in 2027 or 2032 by saying the PCS will cross that bridge when the time comes.In 2013, Mr. Mudavadi made his first run for the presidency. In 2017, he backed Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party, who was running on the ballot of the now-defunct National Super Alliance (Nasa). He supported then-Deputy President William Ruto of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), who is now Kenya's President, in 2022 despite the support of his ANC party.
