Safina Party Presidential Aspirant Jimi Wanjigi has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to retire from politics after the August, 9 General polls.

Wanjigi said President Uhuru should emulate what his predecessor retired president Mwai Kubaki humbly left the political scene after his 10 year leadership term ended.

According to the presidential hopeful, President Kenyatta should stop clinging to power even after the August, 9 general election and leave the country’s politics.

Addressing locals in Malindi, Kilifi County where he met Mt Kenya people working and residing in Malindi on Saturday, Wanjigi said it is evident that President Uhuru want to remain in power even after his term lapses.

“Why was he given the role of chairing Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya Alliance in the first place? Kenyans are aware of the plans behind such a deal,” revealed the presidential hopeful.

He further scoffed at President Uhuru for trying to impose on Kenyans the Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya Alliance political forum saying it lacks any development agenda for the country.

“Why is President Uhuru imposing Raila Odinga on Kenyans? Kenyans know who to elect as their president come August, 9 during the general election,” reiterated Mr Wanjigi.

He further rubbished the entire Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya Alliance political forum, saying it has totally nothing in store for Kenyans.

“I want to caution Kenyans against electing any leader from that political coalition, it will not solve the drastic economic challenges we are currently experiencing as Kenyans,” he disclosed.

The Safina Party Flag bearer who later met locals in Kilifi and Mtwapa urged them to rally behind him so that he clinches the presidency come August general election.

On Sunday, Wanjigi toured Kwale County where he appealed to locals to elect him as their president in the forthcoming general election so that he effect transformative change in the country.
