Limuru MP Peter Mwathi has revealed details of his candid talk with President Uhuru Kenyatta about the 2022 general election.

In a video clip posted by the Nation on Monday, Mwathi said President Kenyatta has settled on ODM leader Raila Odinga as his preferred successor.

The chairperson of the National Assembly Committee on Administration and National Security stated it was just a matter of time before the Head of State and his loyalists in the ruling Jubilee Party starts campaigning vigorously for the ODM boss.

"I want to tell you that we have made our minds and have decided that we will support Raila. Those who are saying we are not honest, I want to tell them that we have spoken with the boss (Uhuru) and he has told us that is where we are," the MP said.

Mwathi said they were supporting Raila's bid to show their gratitude for having endorsed retired President Mwai Kibaki in 2002 and campaigning tirelessly for him when he got involved in a road accident ahead of elections.

He said the Mt Kenya people were also supporting Raila to repay his father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, who made many sacrifices to ensure Kenya's founding President was released from prison to become head of state.

"As Mt Kenya, we should repay Raila. In our culture, we start by repaying the older debt and the latest debt we sort it later. We will also repay his father even though he is dead," Mwathi said.

He made the remarks a few days President Kenyatta hinted at endorsing Raila who has really supported his efforts to unite the country.
