In Summary

• Wanjigi said all those seeking the presidency in the country are people who have been in politics for over 30 years and have nothing new to offer.

• He said the country’s economy cannot be revived by people like Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and William Ruto – all of whom have been in government for many years.

Businessman and politician Jimi Wanjigi has said the time is ripe for Kenyans to have new faces in leadership.

He said all those seeking the presidency in the country are people who have been in politics for over 30 years and have nothing new to offer. 

“It is time for the fresh Davids of this country to stand up and say enough is enough and wipe them (the Goliaths) all from leadership positions,” Wanjigi said on Sunday. 

He said the country has so many 'Goliaths' who need to be removed from power by a new crop of leaders whom he termed as 'Davids'.

Wanjigi spoke at the ACK St Peter's church in Nyeri town on Sunday.

He said the country’s economy cannot be revived by people like Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and William Ruto – all of whom have been in government for many years.

“They are the cause of the problems the country is facing now. It is only Raila Odinga who we can say was a hero of the second liberation,” Wanjigi said.

But he said Raila played his part in the second liberation, where he fought for human rights, and his time is up.

 Wanjigi said the current challenges facing the country need a different approach to address. 

The country should be opening a new chapter in 2022 and have new blood in leadership who will push for the third liberation – the economic liberation.

 

Wanjigi said the first liberation was during the struggle for Independence, while the second was fighting for multiparty democracy.
