Wamalwa out of 2017 Presidential race

09 June 2015, 14:20 William Korir

Nairobi - Eugene Wamalwa says he will not contest the 2017 Presidential race.

Wamalwa made the declaration Tuesday that he does not have any wish to run for any political position in the 2017 elections and that he is only focused on his new role as Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary.

The former New Ford Kenya chairman said that the role of CS, as nominated by President Uhuru Kenyatta was important to him as he will get the chance to serve Kenyans.

" I have no interest in political positions in the 2017 General Elections, none at all," Wamalwa said during vetting for his position in Nairobi.

Wamalwa was being vetted by the Parliamentary Committee on nominations led by Speaker Justin Muturi where he stated that he was willing to set aside his political ambitions to serve Kenyans.

" It is an honour to be nominated by the President and I will do my very best to ensure that the ministry is a success," he added.

The fact that Wamalwa says he will not vie for any political seat will likely mean that NFK will negotiate for a part in one of the various alliances that will be formed in the run up to the elections.

Observers believe that Wamalwa's appointment will likely mean NFK will join up with President Kenyatta's Jubilee Alliance Party JAP.
