National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi is the best placed candidate to deputize William Ruto in 2022.
Several polls have put Muturi ahead of all other potential running mates from Central Kenya.
The same polls have shown that if elections were called today, DP William Ruto will be elected President.
However, Ruto is struggling to get a running mate and the person must come from the vote rich Mt Kenya region.
As per the IEBC records, Mt Kenya has a total of 5 million registered voters which is higher than any other region in the Country.
According to political pundits, Muturi commands a lot of support from Mt Kenya and is rumored to be the only person who can unite the region.
On July 3rd, Muturi declared that he will be running for presidency in 2022.
Muturi said while speaking at his Rural home in Kanyuambora in Mbeere North, Embu county.
He said he is confident that he will clinch the top seat.
The speaker said his mission is to restore the lost glory of the Country and pride.
“We must restore order and dignity in our country, and this cannot be achieved when one is not number one. We must have a country that is ruled by discipline and order and I am the only person who can do that if you place me to be number one,”Muturi said.
Muturi called on priests to pray for him so that he can achieve his dreams of being the next president of Kenya.
Church leaders who attended the occasion declared their support for Muturi to run for presidency.
Bishop Cyrus Muriuki said that everybody in Mt Kenya region should support Muturi because his track record is clean.
In May, Speaker Muturi was coronated as the official spokesperson of Mt Kenya region.
Muturi who is a close confidant of President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent Mt Kenya politicians in panic with many confused whether his coronation had President Uhuru’s blessings.
Three governors from Mt Kenya East have already declared support for his Coronation as Mt Kenya spokesman.
The three are Martin Wambora (Embu) ,Muthomi Njuki (Tharaka Nithi)and Kiraitu Murungi (Meru).
Yesterday, LSK President Nelson Havi carried out a poll on his twitter asking residents how they will vote in 2022.
A William Ruto- Muturi ticket had 56 percent, Raila Odinga -Mutahi Kagwe 21 percent, Mudavadi Waiguru ticket 6 percent and Kivutha Kibwana -Mukhisa Kituyi 17 percent.
