Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has rubbished reports that President Uhuru Kenyatta endorsed his 2022 presidential bid during the burial of his mother Hannah Atsianzale early this month.

Speaking on Wednesday during an interview on Kameme FM, Mudavadi noted that the President alluded to the fact that it may be high time to consider a rotational presidency, but did not endorse anyone for the seat.

“Uhuru has not endorsed me. He is a person who will never impose a leader on the people. When the time comes, I will come back to ask for your support. For now, we should be discussing how to revive the economy,” he said.

“There is nothing wrong with what the President said. If you have a good manifesto and qualities of a leader, Kenyans will elect you their president no matter your tribe,” he added.

Mudavadi’s remark echoes President Kenyatta’s statement earlier this week where he noted that he has not endorsed anyone for the presidency.

Speaking “The truth of the matter is that I do not remember telling you to vote for any particular persons and giving any promises to anyone. When the elections come, we shall exercise our democratic right and we shall surely be evaluating each and every candidate on the ballot,” Uhuru said during an interview with four vernacular radio stations on Monday.
