Speaking on Milele FM's Kivumbi Show on Tuesday morning, the second-term county boss said he will be in the 2022 race, expressing confidence that he will emerge the victor.

He said he has a clear plan on how he seeks to transform the country, adding that so intense will be the changes, that Kenya will resemble some of the envied countries.

According to the Maendeleo Chapchap party leader, under his tenure, Kenya will be stable and will be listed among high-flying economies in the world.

"I will be in the ballot to win. We want to make Kenya a Singapore, inawezekana na itawezekana (its possible and will be achieved)," he said.

He said his attention is now cast on pushing for more funds to the counties under the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), rooting for an upward of 40% of all the revenue.

He argued that this way, Kenyans will have money in their pockets, resulting in a richer people, which is needed for a stable country.

"We want people with money in their pockets because we want that when I take over as president, I take over a rich country," he added.
