Meet Pigbin Odimwengu, 2022 Presidential Aspirant Who is a Cobbler and Part-Time DJ(Photos)

Among the political bigwigs who have declared interest to replace president Uhuru Kenyatta as the 5th president of Kenya ahead of 2022 election, a 25-year old man, Mr. Pigbin Odimwengu stands out as the youngest of all the aspirants.

The former Embu University Students Secretary General currently "hustles" in the Utawala, Nairobi County as a cobbler, barbershop owner and a part time DJ. However, his dreams to save the country from bad leadership have never died.

In a WhatsApp conversation with this opera news writer, The_Corridors learnt that Odimwengu's leadership skills were manifested in his early Primary education where he was an outstanding class prefect. He later became a school president at a High School in Homabay County before making a name at Embu University in 2018 when he became the students Secretary General.

Mr. Odimwengu, the owner of Accountability and Transparency party, said that his government will be made up of 70% of real hustlers. He said that he is open to forming a coalition with real hustlers ahead of 2022 general election, but not ODM's Raila Odinga, Deputy president William Ruto or One Kenya Alliance principals.

"'A Coalition is' possible with real hustlers, youth movements and other small struggling parties like my party but not Raila, Ruto or OKA," Mr. Odimwengu told this Opera news writer.

He informed that if elected the next president, he will ensure that over 50 million shillings is allocated to all the wards annually to cater for free and quality education and another 50 million shillings for accessible and affordable health care will be allocated to all wards within the country annually.

Proper accessible roads, clean water in the villages, Information Technology(IT) hubs, County based industries and Security will also form part of his agenda as the youngest ever Kenyan president.

In his latest address to the nation, Odimwengu has asked the youths to join the Accountability and Transparency party and vie for political positions so as to bring a change in the country.
