Political analyst Herman Manyora had explained why former secretary-general of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) is better than Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi ahead of the 2022 presidential elections.
According to the University of Nairobi (UON) lecturer, Kituyi’s aspiration to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta has exposed the so-called political bigwigs’ mistakes.
He went on to criticize the political big guns who are also eying for the Presidential seat in 2022 saying that they are short in offering solutions.
He added that the former UNCTAD is offering solutions to the country’s problems with his experience from his previous job.
Herman also touched on the hustler movement which is allied to Deputy President William Ruto stating that all it does is lament without giving people the way forward.
“They are so short in offering solutions. When you look at Kituyi, he is offering solutions, borrowing from his experience at UNCTAD. What about the hustlers? It is all about lamentations, complaints pointing out problems,” he said.
Manyora noted that when Kituyi talks about the problems and offers solutions, he does it in a manner that makes ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi look like a kindergarten or primary school child trying to read matters of the economy.
He added that beyond criticizing, the former Vice President does not move a step further nor does he go beyond citing his experience at the Treasury.
He further added that Mudavadi a former ICT and Treasury Minister does not show he understands why the country is borrowing and how the government can mitigate the disaster of excessive borrowing.
The lecturer hailed Kituyi pointing out that he comes with freshness and brings some intellectual power to the political scene.
The political analyst noted that the former Kimilili Member of Parliament does not have to be President but his thoughts will help to know which direction the country needs to take.
Some of the considered political big boys Mukhisa Kituyi will be competing against in the 2022 Presidential elections include Deputy President William Ruto, governors Hassan Joho (Mombasa), Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), Kivutha Kibwana(Makueni), Alfred Mutua (Machakos), and Mwangi wa Iria (Murang’a).
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga said that he will only make a decision if he will be in the race if the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) bill passes.
