Agano Party Leader Mwaure Unveils Ruth Mutua As Running Mate
Mwaure on Saturday announced Ruth Mutua, a communications professional, as his deputy, describing her as a leader who is passionate about fighting graft as much as he is.
“Ruth, like myself, is concerned about the runaway corruption in Kenya, the poverty 59 years after independence, the high cost of living, the bad leadership and recycling of leadership that comes year in, year out the bureaucracy and the never ending impunity,” he said.
While exuding confidence that he and Ms. Mutua would get rid of the vice should Kenyans vote for them on August 9, Mwaura said Kenya needs fresh leaders to fight the problems it has faced since independence.
“And this is something that our competitors will not be able to do because they have been the godfathers of this impunity and corruption,” he added.
On her part, Mutua vowed to champion the rights of women and marginalised groups.
“It is good to recognize that we are the new team, the dream team and the new energy that is coming into office. I am coming to represent the women, the youth and those abled differently. We are the new leaders that the Kenyans have been waiting for,” she said.
The two said they will conduct their campaigns both in public barazas and on social media, adding that the government has already provided them with the necessary security after clearance by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Ms. Mutua holds a bachelor’s degree in Communication and Sociology from the University of Nairobi and has worked in the communications and technology industry for over 10 years.
Others in the President Uhuru Kenyatta succession race are Deputy President William Ruto of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Raila Odinga of the Azimio La Umoja One Party and George Wajakoyah of the Roots Party.
