Opinion: Why the Next President Should not Come From Mount Kenya

The 2022 general elections are drawing closer by the day. Political leaders are gearing up and ready to vie for various seats. However, one issue has come up; will Mount Kenya field another candidate for presidency as they have done before? Here is my honest opinion.

The next president will not and should not come from Mt Kenya. The recent and past pronouncements by the president on the need of having a unified country in terms of leadership, and suggestions that a rotational presidency will solve the ethnic menace seen at the end of every electioneering year leave every single Kenyan interested in a cohesive Kenya with few options.

The huge numbers of people who turned out to receive Musalia Mudavadi in Ruaka, Kiambu County and in Nakuru, clearly demonstrated that Mt Kenya people are prepared to have a different president who has the ability to create a conducive environment for the economy to thrive.

And this is none other than Musalia Mudavadi. The Constitution should be amended to pave way for a rotational presidency. Our presidents have come from only two regions since independence.
