Kibwana changes mind on 2022 Presidential race

Change of mind


Speaking in Mombasa during a meeting with the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK), Kibwana said he did not mind running for the Presidency as long as he could get support.

He promised ICPAK members that he would contest the Presidency is 75 percent of its members promised to support his bid.

“I will give you this condition. You are about 23,000 of you (ICPAK members). If two thirds of you think it is a good idea, which is about 17 thousand of you, then I will consider it seriously,” he said amid uproar from the delegates.

Earlier on, Kibwana had dismissed an online campaign that sought to compel him to vie for the top seat.

Dubbed the #ApendeAsipende Movement, the campaign to have Kibwana on the ballot was premised on his positive record in Makueni county.

The 64-year old professor had previously rejected the calls, saying his focus was on Makueni county after which he would retire in 2022 to go “play with his grandchildren”.
