He made the declaration when the veteran gospel singer visited him at Embassy Cinema in Nairobi to receive blessings from the Bishop in his bid to become Kenya's 5th Head of State.

Muiru was a candidate in the 2007 presidential election on Kenya People's Party (KPP) ticket and emerged fifth after garnering 9,667 votes in the poll the incumbent Mwai Kibaki was declared the winner.

He asked Kigame to take the key of the presidential car he ignited about 14 years ago and drive it uphill.

The popular musician is vying on Federal Party of Kenya (FPK) and argues he is the much-needed alternative in the race dominated by prominent politicians.

On Tuesday he will be taking his campaigns to Meru County after meeting Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana on Monday to discuss 2022 polls.
