DP Endorses Speaker Justin Muturi For Presidential Seat

The Democratic Party (DP) today declared that it will back the National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi presidential bid.

The party officials who were in Nyeri invited Muturi to be the party's flag bearer in the next General Elections after an agreement of Mt Kenya region and Nairobi delegates.

"We have conducted extensive vetting...we will be supporting Speaker Muturi as our presidential candidate. We hereby invite him to join us as we pledge our full support,” Said DP chairperson Esau Kioni.

Speaker Muturi announced his interest in the biggest seat three months ago but he still hasn't pick his suitable party. He announced this after he was coronated and endorsed as Mt Kenya region spokesperson by some members of Kikuyu Council of Elders.

My Kenya region has currently split up on who to support in the presidential race. Many leaders from this region have tried to meet and build up the unity but with no success.
