Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has expressed optimism that she could be among the front runners in the political scene come 2022.
In an interview with Citizen TV on Tuesday, Waiguru said that she is confident that she will be among the politicians to watch after President Uhuru Kenyatta completes his second term in office.
She, however, remained coy on whether she is ready to deputise any candidate in the walk to power.
"I hope I am a front-runner in the 2022 race," she said.
She also said that she is not sure how the Building Bridges Initiative will shape the politics of this nation but remains hopeful that things will work in her favour.
"We don't know the shape our politics will take after the process of BBI and all that then we will make our decisions," she said.
During the same interview, Waiguru defended her performance since she assumed office. She associated the health workers' strike to rivals who want to bring him down.
She further said that President Uhuru has given his best in the matters of administration and now wants total support on BBI.
