Speaking at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos town on Monday, Mutua, who has hinted at contesting for the nation’s top seat in 2022 said the past regimes have been building the country's foundation.

He said it is time for the youths to take up the leadership mantle so as to transform the country. 

Mutua hailed past Presidents for doing their best to ensure that Kenyans enjoy stability as a country amid endless challenges.

He, however, noted that time has come for young leaders to rise to the occasion. 

The governor said the country's founding father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, retired Presidents Mwai Kibaki and Daniel Moi, Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and the first Vice President of Kenya Jaramogi Oginga Odinga fought wholeheartedly to ensure that this nation becomes a better place.

“This county has been that of laying foundations since it got her independence in 1963. If you look at leaders who fought for our independence, they are leaders who fought for freedom and they led this nation in a way to build the foundation. What we call pre-independence politics. Now, there is need for a paradigm shift in politics of this nation,” Mutua said.

The second-term governor has maintained that he is the man to change this nation if given the mandate to rise to power after President Uhuru Kenyatta exits office in 2022.
