Gospel singer Reuben Kigame is in the race for statehouse.
In April this year, Kigame made public his intentions to contest in 2022 for the top seat saying the tough times the country is undergoing have prompted him to make the tough decision.
The ‘Enda Nasi’ hit singer has already layed the groundwork for his presidential bid by announcing some of the things he intends to change.
Kigame joins the growing list of politicians seeking to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta when his second and last term ends in 2022.
”A million thanks to the Federal Party of Kenya for the decision to support me to become the fifth president of Kenya. It is not a light matter to my team and me! The time for inclusive politics and the birth of a better Kenya is here,” Kigame wrote on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday, July 28.
Kigame will run on a Federal Party of Kenya (FPK) ticket in the 2022 General Election.
Service for all
Kigame said just like Christ, he would serve all citizens indiscriminately.
“I am a Christian but presidency implies I must serve everyone equally and fairly. I will be a President also for Muslims, Hindus, atheists, and so on. All need servant leadership,” said Kigame.
He further said, “I will be President for all. My priority would be to ask, have they eaten, do they have medicines, do they have jobs? They are first human before anything else,” he said.
