1. Kenyans will recall that after the 2017 elections, I was among the first leaders to advocate for constitutional reforms which will not not only ensure an inclusive national executive but also reduce the cost of running government to the benefit of all Kenyans.

2. I am pleased that the debate is now crystallizing and there seems to be consensus that the next government will have a President, DP, PM with two deputies and a recognized and active opposition.

3. As Maendeleo chap chap, we will be discussing our detailed memorandum of proposals for constitutional change before presenting it to the Building Bridges Initiative and other relevant organs in a few weeks time.

4. Cognizant of the African sickness of leaders clinging to power, whether community or national, Maendeleo Chap Chap Party does NOT support any proposal to remove presidential term limits or Governors’ term limits. We have to be very careful we do not go backwards to the period of dictatorship. Our youth also need to have an avenue to grow and to dream and achieve their ambitions. These positions we occupy are a service and should be about us but about Wananchi and the country.

5. Hon Kalonzo Musyoka’s proposal to remove Presidential term limits and to extend President Uhuru Kenyatta’s term in 2022, is a confirmation that he is no longer in the Presidential race in 2022. We expect him to stick to this new position and not shift goalposts or flip flop as some Kenyan leaders are known to do.

6. Now that Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka has confirmed he will not be in the Presidential race, I request him and other leaders to support my 2022 presidential bid as I galvanize more support nationally so that we can change our country.

7. That means I am now the only leader who has declared that I will run for Presidential elections in 2022 from Eastern region.

8. Now that Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka has confirmed he will not be in the Presidential race, I request him and other leaders to support my 2022 presidential bid as I galvanize more support nationally so that we can change our country.

9. Kenya needs politics that is forward looking and one that has continuation and not politics that is looking backward and based on mere rhetoric.
