A Ford Kenya Party member of parliament has predicted that 2022 presidential race will be a two horse race.
Speaking in Bungoma town, the recently elected Kabuchai Mp Majimbo Kalasinga averred that the race will be between the Deputy President William Ruto and ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
However, Kalasinga stated that Ruto will triumph against Odinga because of the current popularity index.
“Raila Odinga is a strong presidential candidate, however, Ruto has endeared himself into the voters through the ‘Hustler tag’, he is on the ground and has managed to convince majority Kenyans,” said the law maker.
Other leaders who have announced their intention to vie for Presidency include ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi, the National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi among others.
He was responding to his critics after attending the Ruto’s rally at Chwele market in Kabuchai constituency.
“I am a Ford Kenya party Member of Parliament, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula who is also the Bungoma Senator is my boss and I can’t disrespect him ,” he said.
Majimbo added that he never delivered Wetang’ula’s greetings but said I respect my party leader.
The legislator pointed out that he delivered the Senate speaker Ken Lusaka’s greetings and recognized Wetang’ula.
The only place he agreed with Ruto is that they all don’t need and will never vote for Odinga.
He called on his critics to stop unhealthy propaganda that will create bad blood.
“If I win the Mps seat next here on Ford Kenya party and Ruto wins the Presidency on UDA, if we meet would I have defected to UDA? Let’s stop petty politics and work for our people,” he stated.
Majimbo said that he has unwavering support for Wetang’ula and meeting the Deputy President William Ruto doesn’t mean that he has defected.
Majimbo emerged the winner in the recent Kabuchai constituency by-election following the death of the area Mp James Mukwe Lusweti.
