The son of former cabinet minister the late Joe Nyagah has declared interest in the presidential seat.
Speaking to the press on Tuesday in Kirinyaga, John Mwaniki Nyagah said he will vie on an independent ticket.
He said he will officially declare his bid for the presidency in two weeks' time.
While explaining his candidature, he said no region should be directed on whether they should produce a presidential candidate or not.
"I'm going to do his for many reasons. One of the reasons I'm doing this is that I reject completely the notion that some communities in Kenya should not be allowed to produce a presidential candidate."
He added that Kenya is a democratic state and everyone should be allowed to vie for any seat they are interested in.
"Kenya is a democracy and every community has a right to produce a candidate or as many candidates it so wishes," he added.
He urged more communities to produce presidential candidates so that they can have good leaders elected into office.
The 44-year-old Mwaniki is the firstborn of the former minister.
According to scion, his father would have still run for the top seat says if he was still alive.
The former minister died in December 202o.
