Former Inspector General of Police Dr. David Kimaiyo has declared his intentions to run for the 2022 presidential elections.
While addressing a gathering in Elgeyo Marakwet County, Dr. Kimaiyo said he will be among the candidates for the 2022 presidential elections.
“God willing. If President Uhuru Kenyatta finishes his term in 2022, I want to mention here very clearly that I will be among the candidates who will present their papers to ask for the position of President from Kenyans”.
The retired police boss said he has served Kenyans in various capacities and therefore suitable for the role.
Dr. Kimaiyo at the same time, as reported by the Daily Nation on Tuesday, said he will view against Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen in the 2022 Elgeyo Marakwet Senatorial Seat.
The first Inspector General to serve under the new constitution told Nation that Murkomen has failed to address issues affecting residents for focusing much on national politics.
He alleged that he lost the 2017 elections unfairly to Senator and would ensure that his votes are well secured in the next polls.
He has been heavily involved in the politics of the County and comments on issues affecting the residents.
In July, he asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to appoint a task force to establish the causes of banditry attacks among pastoralist communities in the North Rift.
Dr. Kimaiyo is currently serving as a non-executive chairperson of Kenyatta National Hospital.
