Nyandarua County Governor Francis Kimemia has dismissed claims by a number of presidential candidates that Mount Kenya Region has debts to pay which are back-dated to 1963, 2002 and 2013 to respective leaders.
Kimemia states that what was uttered during the past election campaigns were mere politics, and 2022 will be a new election time when all leaders eyeing elective posts will hit the ground and woo voters despite what was promised in the past.
Speaking on TV 47 on Monday evening, the governor said that the latest comment on election time frames by President Uhuru Kenyatta 'Kumi Yangi na Kumi Ya Ruto' remarks will be hard to follow since a lot of things have changed, and the competitors on the field are different.
"Under what authority can you promise 'mine ten and yours ten?' You have one vote, and the others are with the voters. You cannot promise such because you have to go back to the people, there is no legitimacy in such comment and the agreement was not endorsed by Kenyans. We as Mt Kenya do not have any debts to pay" said Kimemia.
The governor went on to state that every aspiring president should be given an opportunity to show case their manifestos before the citizens proceed to the ballot.
