- Mutua and Gideon have all declared they will run for the presidency in 2022
- Gideon recently met Joho and agreed to work together in unifying the country
- Mutua has dismissed DP Ruto’s candidature insisting he’s the man to watch
- The two leaders discussed how to safeguard the future of the country during their meeting in Nairobi
The 2022 presidential race has taken yet another interesting dymanic as Machakos governor Alfred Mutua met with Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
The two leaders met in Nairobi on Monday, June 18 where they reportedly spoke on how to safeguard unity in the country ahead of the next poll which is four years away.
Mutua took to social media to announce the meeting, although he did not divulge on the particulars of what was discussed.
“It’s always a pleasure sharing lunch with my brother Gideon Moi as we discuss the current state of affairs, especially the need to safeguard the future of our beloved Country Kenya. When like minds work together, stability & development of our people is ensured & enhanced,” he wrote.
The meeting bred interest from Kenyans, as it looked like another alliance was being formed in the build up to the next poll.
While Deputy President William Ruto has been strongly tipped for presidency on a number of occasions, several unlikely political marriages have emerged which look to quell Ruto’s presidential ambitions.
Only hours before Mutua met the retired president Daniel Moi’s son, he exuded confidence that he could go all the way in 2022 for the top job.
Appearing on Citizen TV's Sunday Live programme on June 17, Mutua said he would beat DP Ruto in the 2022 presidential contest.
"I can beat William Ruto for the presidency in 2022. We have four years ahead of us. I am not campaigning, I am just putting my dream out there that I aspire to be a presidential candidate in 2022," he spoke during the interview on Sunday, June 17.
It is however yet to be seen how a Mutua-Moi collaboration would work as both leaders have in the recent past expressed their desires to run for presidency.
Moi’s party KANU on Sunday also hinted that a presidential candidate would be unveiled soon as they look for more political forces to back their cause.
