NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 16 – United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Secretary General, Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi, on Friday announced he will be stepping down on February 15 ahead of the launch of his 2022 presidential campaign.

The former Kimilili MP who also served as a Cabinet Minister in former President Mwai Kibaki’s administration formally declared interest in the presidency on January 3 during a meeting with a group of professionals in Bungoma.

Kituyi has been touring different parts of the country in recent days ostensibly to popularize his candidature with his latest move to step down from the UN lucrative position sending a strong signal that indeed his ambitions to be Kenya’s fifth president are alive.

With political realignments taking shape in the country ahead of the high stake 2022 General Election, Kituyi is yet to publicly declare which party he will be using to vie for the country’s top seat.
