Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana says he is Wanjiku’s (ordinary Kenyan) project in his 2022 presidential aspirations.
Kibwana, who was speaking in a phone interview with Musyi FM this morning, 14th July, said he had been greatly inspired by the ordinary Kenyans who believe in his leadership. He said his ambitions have nothing to do with President Uhuru Kenyatta or Deputy President William Ruto.
“Professionals and other Kenyans from across the country have been watching my leadership and especially, during the period that I have served Makueni County as the governor.”
The 2019 Governor of the Year award winner explained that his track record in managing public resources and involving the people in development projects through public participation had earned him the trust of Kenyans.
Asked what had given him the confidence to go for the top the seat, which Ukambani region kingpin Kalonzo Musyoka had failed to win, Kibwana said: “There is a difference between one endorsing oneself and when endorsed by Kenyans.”
Having served the country for 44 years n different capacities, Kibwana said he had gained the necessary exposure and experience to go for the top seat
“I was a university lecturer for 25 years. I was an assistant minister in the Office of the President as well as that of the Vice-President. I am aware on all that goes on in leadership,” he said.
Kibwana served in the Ministries of Lands and Environment for 17 months.
