National Assembly Speaker Hon Justin Muturi, has caused an uproar among Kenyans today after claiming that he is very serious in seeking for presidency in this year's general elections, and he should not be underrated by his fellow presidential aspirants as they campaign across the country ahead of August 9 polls.
Speaking to the members of the press conference today in Nakuru as quoted by Citizen Digital, Muturi claimed that he is very serious in the race for presidency to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta urging his competitors not to underrate him but preach peace, as they traverse the country seeking for votes not downplaying him saying Mount Kenya region will not produce a presidential candidate this time round.

This statement about his seriousness has elicited several reactions from Kenyans, where all of them ganged up against him ridiculing his bid saying that he will not go anywhere and has not capacity to win. He is therefore, likely going to get a very few votes which will not make him win and he might be only interested in dividing Mount Kenya region votes.
Here are some of their reactions on Facebook:
