Tuesday, March 15, 2022 – Former head of the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) David Githii has joined the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta as the race for State House heats up.
Addressing journalists on Monday, Githi said that it was high time for the men of the cloth take over the reins in Government for the country’s prosperity and to change the country for the better.
“I Reverend David Muthoya Githii accept the challenge to change this country for the better together with like-minded colleagues. I hereby present my Presidential candidature in the forthcoming August 9, 2022, General Election,”“It is now the time that men and women, with the background of serving God, take charge and show Kenyans the way God will run the country for prosperity and greatness,” he said.
He said for the country to witness the needed developmental changes, it needs a new crop of leaders and not politicians.
“With the same politicians and the same politics, exchanging positions every electoral cycle. This is purely a game of musical chairs, changing positions with no attempt to address needs for national greatness,” he added.
He is making an entry into the already crowded race of presidential hopefuls which include former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Deputy President William Ruto, businessman Jimi Wanjigi, and musician Reuben Kigame.
Others who have declared their ambitions to occupy the house on the hill include ex-GSU officer, Zablon Karanja Mbugua, of the Biblical Pentecostal Apostolic Church and former presidential candidate in the 2002 and 2007 general elections, Nickson Kukubo.
Those who had declared interest to give William Ruto and Raila Odinga a run for their money but have since withdrawn include ANC leader, Musalia Mudavadi, former UNCTAD Secretary-General, Mukhisa Kituyi, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua, and Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana.
Others who have shelved their presidential ambitions include Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, his Mombasa counterpart, Hassan Joho, and Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi.
