Muranga ODM Senatorial candidate Pius Kinuthia Wambui has rolled out an all-inclusive grassroots meet the people tour in efforts to popularize his bid and that of Raila Odinga’s Presidential ambitions.
Kinuthia’s political ambitions has received a major boost after youths who forms the biggest electorate i nthe County endorsed his Senatorial bid.
The aspirant has been popularizing his party boss Azimio la Umoja campaigns to different parts of Muranga and he is upbeat that the message is still sinking to people.
This week Kinuthia has been traversing parts of Maragua and Kiharu before starting off a county tournament in bid to foster unity and recognize talents among the youth. This has made him become first among equals amongst his aspirants.
Kinuthia is upbeat that ODMC has started gaining traction in the County and is optimistic that for the first time in the history of Kenyan politics, he is crisscrossing various parts of Muranga endearing himself to the masses and instead of being bashing, he is being welcomed in open arms.
“The handshake has indeed stabilized our country and evolutionalized our local politics and people are really trooping to join ODM which was formerly seen like a criminal gang or a taboo for Mt Kenya region resident to associate with,” Kinuthia said.
The aspirant has pulled a first one against his competitors who include Joe Nyutu and others who are only hanging in Deputy President’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) due to its considerate influence in the region.
But he believes a leader should endear himself to the masses instead of pegging their hopes of influential leaders but it is the influential leaders who should depend on aspirants to show them the route in the areas they wish to be elected.
“I have decided to go out the people and popularize my candidature as opposed to waiting for Raila to hold my hand, when he comes it is me who will take him round thew county since I will have traversed the area,” he said.
ODM has started getting aspirants across the County where majority as seeking MCA, parliamentary, Senatorial amd gubernatorial candidates in Muranga.
