Jimmy Kibaki Set To Run For Presidency

The retired President Mwai Kibaki's elder son Jimmy Kibaki is set to run for the presidential race in 2022 as per the reports from the TND party where he is the Deputy party leader.

Jimmy Kibaki, the businessman, campaigned for his father before the chaotic 2007 polls but has otherwise kept a low profile until last month when he was appointed as the party's deputy leader.

Billionaire Thuo Mathenge, The New Democrats (TND) party leader spoke on his interview claiming that the party has already received the blessings from the retired President Mwai Kibaki's son Jimmy.

"I would like to state that TND is on the advanced stage of having Jimmy Kibaki as our presidential candidate in 2022. Being our deputy party leader, he is equal to tasks ahead of delivering the country from bad leadership and end corruption,” Thuo Mathenge said.

"The New Democrats Party is a Kenyan political party founded to give Kenya a new, alternative and people-centred leadership that ensures positive governance in the spirit of the new constitutional dispensation.” He added.

In the current Kenya Political wave it is Raila Odinga and DP Ruto who seems to be top of the presidential battle,but for him 'Jimmy' if he will declare to run then the field is still open for him.
