A Kenyan trio has set tongues wagging after registering a political party in order to prepare in succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The trio is set to join the race to vie for the highest seat in the land come 2022.
Unlike most politicians, the trio is made of young and fresh blood something that has long been missing in the political scene.
Riziki Dunstan, Amemba Magufuli and Fredrick Ojiambo have registered a political party dubbed National Reconstruction Alliance Party of Kenya.
NRA whose slogan is “Mwamko Mpya” has it’s headquarters on Ngong-Matasia boasts of having fully functional offices in 41 counties and over 500, 000 registered Members across the country.
NRA equally boasts of being a youthful party, with the majority of its national officials and founders being 35 years and below.
“As a party we believe in community engagement but more importantly we believe in the involvement of youths in governance of their country at all levels.
The founders of this Great Party are young, ordinary Men and women ( I consider this are the true Hustlers) with zeal and passion to transform this great country- the genuine “hustler Spirit” added Fred Ojiambo One of its Founders currently based in the US.
Mr Ojiambo a theology student in the USA emphasized,
“NRA Is not a political Vehicle But rather our vision is to build political institutions that will outlive its founders.
Our vision as founder members is to see that we have a political institution that shall create a crop of leaders and responsible citizenry in this great country called Kenya.”
Just like any other political grouping and 2022 succession politics, when we asked Riziki on whether they will be fielding a presidential candidate, he said, “Politics is an art of numbers and science of ideas with an object of changing peoples lives.”
‘A number of Presidential aspirants have approached the party, we shall interact with them and at the right time ….
for sure we shall field a strong presidential candidate..you never know the first objective of a party is to transform lives through acquisition of Power, we shall no depart from those principles”
Amemba emphasized on the need of young people to participate in politics,
“We encourage young people to actively participate in governance of their country and counties.
we will be pushing for the active participation of youth and women in Politics moreso at the county level we shall mainstream the active participation of the youths, women and Persons with disability.
We need Young People to be able to believe in themselves and understand the need to reconstruct our nationhood to transform Kenya into a country where all of us can enjoy our nationhood, our youths can have jobs, our youths can get business opportunities just like any other person.”
On what Next for NRA, Riziki a lawyer by profession added that they have all systems ready for massive National recruitment exercise,
“The party shall be opening offices in all the counties in Kenya, we shall be opening our offices in Baringo and Marsabit soon, we are looking forward to open constituency offices in at least 120 constituencies. We are ready and we are gearing towards rolling up our sleeves to do what ought to be done.”
