Former Vice President George Saititi’s brother Ronald Musengi will be vying in the 2022 general election Payuka has learnt.
Musengi will be vying for Member of Parliament for Kajiado North which his late brother Saitoti led since 1988 till his death in 2012.
The move is aimed at reigniting the families legacy, 10 years after the death of the former Vice President.
“Next year’s elections, which marks ten years since Saitoti’s demise, will be an opportunity to reignite his legacies and the family is ready now to do just that,” he stated.
According to Musengi, the family decided to keep off politics for all those years so as to reflect on the political tenure of the late Saitoti and know the next political move.
“I was very close to Saitoti and he involved me in a lot of his political life. So since he died, I get these concerns from constituents about lack of water, closure of the land registry, poor roads and of course insecurity.
“I think it is time that I ascend to the position where I can address these issues. It is the only way I can refresh Saitoti’s legacy,” Musengi acknowledged.
Musengi opines that Kajiado North has vast growth opportunities and only needs the right leadership to steer it to success.
His focus will be on the completion of the Ngong stadium, improvement of roads and enhance more investment opportunities within the region.
He also promised to act on the growing insecurity concerns in Kajiado with the recent murders of former KBC journalist Betty Barasa and National Lands Commission manager Jennifer Wambua.
Musengi studied engineering before moving to Canada to advance his studies. He then returned to the country and worked as a banker before ultimately joining the National Police Service Commission where he served as its commissioner.
