'We're not in talks with Azimio la Umoja,' Kiunjuri says TSP will field presidential candidate
The Service Party (TSP) leader Mwangi Kiunjuri says his party will field a presidential candidate in the August 9, 2022 elections as well as contest all other seats.
Kiunjuri denied claims that his party has joined the Raila Odinga-led Azimio la Umoja movement.
He said the party is yet to declare which political outfit to join ahead of the forthcoming general election.
Kiunjuri stated that TSP will make a major declaration in March this year on which direction to follow.
He spoke on Friday as he also received former Gilgil Member of Parliament Mathenge Nderitu who defected from the Jubilee party.
“One of our senior leaders from Jubilee and Azimio purported to issue a statement whereby he masquearaded to speak on our behalf, that TSP is in talks or already in Azimio,” he said.
“I want to make it very clear that we have never had a any discussion with Azimio or any of their leaders…we have never opened that kind of a platform with them, and we’re not ready to open any discussion with any party for now.”
He further added: “We said clearly two months ago that we shall be issuing a statement in the month of March to let Kenyans know who we’re going to support as the next president of Kenya.”
