Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has lauded opposition leader Raila Odinga for his involvement in the nation’s current well-being.

Speaking on Milele FM’s ‘Kivumbi’ on Thursday morning, the youthful county chief hailed the former Premier for his successful push for multiparty democracy and the current constitution.

The former critic of both Raila and his National Super Alliance (NASA) co-chief Kalonzo Musyoka, however, urged the leader to consider keeping off future political contests.

Mutua who is eyeing the presidency in the approaching 2022 general election said that the nation now needs a new set of leaders, terming himself the best for the post.

‘’Raila anafaa heshima kwa kupigania demokrasia na katiba na hata akafungwa miaka mingi jela kwa ajili ya nchi (he deserves credit for his push for democracy and the new constitution),’’ he said.

‘’Hata hivyo, sasa tunahitaji viongozi wapya maana tulio nao ni walewale wa toka enzi za ukoloni (however, we need a new set of leaders away from the current pre-independence ones),’’ he added.

The two are, however, likely to face off in the 2022 contest also expected to bring on board, among others, Deputy President William Ruto.

Mutua is likely to vie on his Maendeleo Chapchap (MCC) political party in the much-anticipated race.
