Murang'a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria announced Alfayo Onyambu as his running mate as he prepares for the August 9 General Election.

"In conformity with the electoral law that demands that all presidential aspirants announce their running mates before Monday midnight, I have since settled on Mr. Onyambu and who I strongly believe will help Usawa Kwa Wote party compete and clinch power," Mwangi stated.

Mr. Onyambu, a politician who ran for Senate on a Jubilee Party ticket in the 2017 elections, was unveiled as the presidential nominee of the Usawa Kwa Wote party.

The governor, who is in his second term and is constitutionally required to resign, announced his ticket mate ahead of the May 16 deadline for submitting names to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

"Many have been saying that Mt Kenya does not have a serious presidential candidate. Yet, I am here and I have remained steadfast in insisting that my candidature is not a comedy. The president should have left the community and Mt Kenya in my hands," Wa Iria stated.

The governor stated that his motivation for running for the presidency is to disprove the myth that "the Agikuyu community is tired of being associated with the presidency, as well as to preserve the culture and reputation of the community of contesting the top seat in all elections held in the country so far."

He stated that he is certain of what he is doing and that he will surprise many by winning.

He added that his agenda will be to transform the country's economic front by emphasizing the family unit as a host for transformational leadership.

His main ally nominated MCA Habire Chege, praised him as a person who has brought development to Murang'a people during his two-term rule, "including the revival of dairy, avocado, coffee, Early Childhood Development, and health sectors."
