Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama says Interior CS Fred Matiang’i is ripe for the presidency.
Speaking in Nakuru, the legislator said the presidency should not be a reserve of the big communities in the country.
He vowed to rally his community behind the ‘workaholic’ CS.
“We have the likes of Dr Fred Matiang’i who has shown that he has qualities to be the next President of Kenya and I will push my community to have him on the ballot because we must show the other communities that this seat is not their preserve,” Arama said.
Arama was addressing residents in his constituency during the issuance of cheques for bursaries.
More than 200 students were awarded the bursaries.
The MP said the Kikuyu, Kalenjin and Luos think they are entitled to the presidency.
“These communities are talking passionately about the 2022 presidential race as if the other communities including the Kisii, which has produced the most hardworking Cabinet Secretary, Dr Fred Matiang’i, have no capacity to produce a presidential candidate,” said Arama.
He wondered what would happen if he ran for Nakuru governor.
“If today I declare my interest to vie for the Nakuru governor’s seat, there will be a lot of noise and I will be branded an outsider simply because I am Kisii and I don’t come from the three big communities,” said Arama.
