The Federal Party of Kenya has endorsed gospel singer Reuben Kigame to vie for the presidency in the 2022 General Election.
The development comes barely two months after the Huniachi hitmaker declared he will vie for the top seat as an independent candidate.
According to a Tweet posted on Wednesday, July 28, the presidential hopeful expressed pleasure after the Federal Party endorsed him.
“A million thanks to the Federal Party of Kenya for the decision to support me to become the 5th president of Kenya,
“It is not a light matter to my team and I! The time for inclusive politics and the birth of a better Kenya is here,” he said.
“The physical gathering for my presidential bid launch has been canceled. The police have informed us that there should be no physical gatherings today. What a mockery of freedom launched on this day 31 years ago (saba Saba day)! Stay put for the next communication,” he lamented.
In a move to woe support across the country ahead of the crucial elections, the Pan-Africanist said he is the best candidate to take over the button from retiring President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The singer, known for his political activism said the current leaders who have expressed their intentions to become the fifth Head of State have been in several leadership positions but have not delivered.
“Why do I want to be Kenya’s next President? Because Kenya, like a bus full of 50 million people and is being driven into the ocean and all the drivers on offer are unwilling to stop and turn around. I can clearly see the coming crash and can hear passengers screaming,” he said.
