Lawyer and politician Paul Muite has dismissed claims he is ailing and in poor health after a photo of him made rounds online.

Before the Safina Party, Muite was involved with the Forum for Reforms and Democracy Party (FORD) which was among the earliest political outfits after Kenya became a multi-party state.

In 2013 he contested the presidency through a Safina Party ticket and emerged 8th having garnered 12,580 votes. In 2017, he did not contest neither did his party front any contender for the seat.

The 2022 elections however saw his party present businessman Jimi Wanjigi who was not cleared to run for the top seat after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) disqualified him for not having a university degree.
