Kisumu Governor Professor Anyang’ Nyong’o on Tuesday afternoon asked Kenyans to probe the history of every presidential aspirant ahead of the 2022 general polls.
Speaking in Ndakaini, Murang’a County during a function organized by artists to showcase their talents and appreciate the government for supporting their course, Nyong’o said the journey of liberating Kenyans did start yesterday.
He seemingly suggested that no tom, dick and harry should just come up and declare his/her interest in the presidency irrespective of the role one played in liberation of the Country.
“Ahead of the next elections everyone who wants to become president, let them open their books. In 1963, where were you? In 1992 where were you? In 2002 where were you? It is not a matter of yesterday. It is a matter of a long journey we have travelled to liberate this Country,” said the Kisumu County first term governor.
Nyong’o went on to say that the person who is qualified to run and be elected next president is ODM Party leader Raila Odinga.
“As the governor of Kisumu County, I would like to assure you that Honorable Raila Odinga, from long time ago has fought for democracy in this Country so that all Kenyans can be free.”
Odinga is highly expected to be in the presidential race in 2022. If he does, it will be his 5th attempt after failing to win in 1997, 2002, 2013 and 2017.
