‘This is the time for generational change and the youth must take their place in the leadership of Kenya.’
This was the sentiment expressed by Deputy Prime Minister and TNA party presidential aspirant Uhuru Kenyatta, who disclosed that TNA, Ford-People and New Ford-Kenya have now agreed to work together.
Former cabinet minister Henry Obwocha of Ford-People and Ford-Kenya presidential hopeful Justice Minister Eugene Wamalwa, who were both present, confirmed the political arrangement.
Kenyatta, who was speaking while on the second day of a tour of Nyamira and Kisii counties, said the three parties together with other leaders will settle on one presidential candidate, whom they will all back to win the coming polls.
Wamalwa, on his part, disagreed with Premier Raila Odinga’s sentiment that the next election will be between reformers and non-reformers and reiterated it will be a choice between the past and the future but stressed the need for a free, fair and peaceful vote.
Foreign Affairs Professor Sam Ongeri expressed his support Kenyatta for the top job.
