  • Professor Makau Mutua will be running for the presidential seat in 2022. The professor stated he is ready to offer the Country fresh and untainted leadership.

    “I may have to think seriously of running for PORK in 2022 if a certain person doesn’t do so. Stay tuned,” he tweeted.

    The US-based Kenyan lawyer, who is known for his hard-hitting newspaper columns stated he would vie for the seat in order to rescue Kenyans from mediocre leaders.

    The professor did not support Kenyatta in both 2013 and 2017

    “My time has come. If not now, when? If not me, who?” he was quoted by Daily Nation.

    In 2013, the lawyer refused to recognize Uhuru Kenyatta as the president. 

    “I would run not because of blind ambition, like some past candidates, but because I believe I have the best policy prescriptions and moral standing that dwarf any other candidate,” Mutua stated.

    The lawyer cited Kenyans desire new leadership that does not entail the usual ethnic considerations that come up during elections.

    Mutua stated money would not hinder him from vying as he does not intend to buy the election.

    “We have extensive networks of clean and uncorrupted resources, both financial and moral but that’s not our most important question. I don’t intend to buy the election,” he continued.

    The professor has been a supporter ODM leader Raila Odinga and his running mate Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
