Mutahi Kagwe, the Health Cabinet Secretary, has debunked rumors that he is pursuing a running mate post in the next 2022 General Election.
Kagwe recognized that his rising presence in the public space has raised political eyebrows since his appointment to the Ministry of Health during an interview on a local media today.
The CS, who was also a Nyeri Senator from 2013 to 2017, said he was focused on his ministry's responsibilities and that he couldn't afford to divert his attention to politics at this time.
Mutahi went on to say that the presidential election in 2022 will be crucial for Kenya's future, asking Kenyans to vote intelligently. He remarked that President Uhuru Kenyatta's legacy initiatives must be continued once he leaves office.
"Presidency related matters are not to be taken lightly. Such decisions will have an impact on your children and grandchildren. These are the problems that will determine whether your children are employed or unemployed, and if President Kenyatta's work being done continues," he added.
