Kindiki announces break from elective positions
Tharaka Nithi senator and former deputy speaker Kithure Kindiki has settled on taking a brake from elective position after failing to secure the Deputy president position in the Kenya Kwanza coalition.
Kindiki announced the decision to disengage on county politics on Monday to allow him focus on national politics in support of the Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate.
“My attempt at being nominated to ascend to a national elective leadership position having failed yesterday, I have taken a decision to take a break from elective politics starting 10th of August 2022,” said Kindiki.
“I will use the break to reorganize myself as I continue to fully support my party UDA and Kenya Kwanza administration to deliver to Kenyans upon assuming office.”
Kindiki noted that he will be available to offer his services to the Kenya Kwanza brigade to ensure that they mobilize a lot of people to vote for Kenya Kwanza.
“After prayerful soul-searching and reflection, I have decided to remain a loyal and faithful member our party UDA and the Kenya Kwanza alliance. I will continue to play my role in the campaign and subordinate myself to the leadership of our party including my former competitor who is now the deputy president-designate for our coalition and country,” said Kindiki.
The former deputy speaker also announced that he would not be seeking any appointive position, but would instead remain focused on serving the country on a national elective seat. This is after he was linked to an appointment as the Attoney General should Kenya Kwanza win the August general elections.
