Makueni county Governor Kivutha Kibwana has withdrawn his 2022 presidential ambitions and declared that he will support former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga.

"I consulted my people in my county leadership and they gave me the go-ahead to support Azimio la Umoja and they told me that I have age on my side and will resume my presidential ambitions in future," he said.

This comes despite the Makueni county chief having declared that he would be contesting to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta after his term comes to an end this August.

He had already urged his followers to support him by ensuring that they campaigned for him in the upcoming presidential elections through the word of mouth noting that the message would spread fast to his supporters.

“Kenyans I beseech you to campaign for me by Word of Mouth. I believe we can redeem Kenya from endemic corruption, tribalism, impunity, youth neglect, under-development, poverty, etc,” he said.

He had noted that those who had said that the elections would be a two horse race would be surprised because sone of them would be okay with being labelled as donkeys in the upcoming presidential elections.
