According to Daily Nation newspaper, Mount Kenya businessman, Jimmy Wanjigi has announced that he will be in the 2022 presidential race. This turns to be a nightmare for both Raila and Ruto who are seeking great support from the mountain region in the forthcoming general elections.
Jimmy to Nation through SMS text: "I will be in the race."
Jimmy Wanjigi is expected to consolidate the mountain region which has be fractured by the two leading contestants (Ruto and Raila) of 2022 presidential race.
The businessman believes that it is time for Murang'a county to produce a president since Nyeri and Kiambu had produced president before. This would mean the other sub-region within mountain Kenya will give him support.
Wanjigi has been an integral political friend of the ODM Party leader, Raila Odinga. He financed Raila's 2017 presidential campaign, hence his bid is somehow a challenge to Raila's 2022 presidential race.
Meanwhile, do you think Kenya need a president from the mountain region in 2022?
