We all know what is ahead of us, 2017 general elections which we dont know who will emerge the winner. We have Jubilee and NASA coming up and next year one of the two will carry the day. Jubilee is hping to rule for 20 years while Raila is hoping to send Jubilee home. However, 2022 is the year when Deputy President William Ruto’s is expected to take over from Uhuru and unfortunately, his bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta is proving to be no walk in the park with former DPP Philip Murgor declaration he will run for the country’s top job.
Murgor has promised to fight graft. Although Murgor will run next year, it is seen as a warmup for 2022. His entry into the race complicates the rush for the Kalenjin vote, with Baringo Senator Gideon Moi expected to run for the country’s top seat in 2022 as well.
Murgor was endorsed to run next year on the United Democratic Movement ticket. “We know Kenyans have a solution to everything affecting them, but when it comes to politics, as a country we usually go back to the tribal groups and that is what we must overcome,” he said.
“We have high levels of corruption inside the executive office of the Jubilee government that has run the country down and frustrated devolution.” he added.
Further Murgor said, “I will work with people who have integrity and I rule out Jubilee. I am open to coalitions at the party and at the individual level, but the opposition has to drop the corrupt if they want to join us.” He said he will promote unity, address gender inequality and strengthen government institutions.
