Former Kandara Member of Parliament Joshua Toro is the latest entrant into the Murang'a gubernatorial race.

Addressing the press in Murang'a, Toro who has been Chairman at National Irrigation Authority (NIA), said he has been observing the leadership of the county and he realized there are some gaps adding that he holds the key to transforming the region.

He said he has a good development track record and that his experience in public service matches none of his opponents.

"The people of Murang'a need a leader who can prudently utilize and manage their resources and help improve their livelihood," he said

"If the residents will be looking for a candidate with the best track record, I have no doubt I will be the next governor for Murang'a," he said.

The former MP also said he won't be launching his manifesto adding that he shall only be consulting the residents on the projects they would like implemented.

He said most of the aspirants give manifestos that only remain in the blueprint because they are never implemented.

"I believe in working closely with the people who will dictate the projects they would like implemented and this brings satisfaction to them," he said.

Like hundreds of aspirants who are yet to decide which party to choose as their vehicle, Toro said he is waiting for political parties' realignment to decide the way forward.

He however said he will not go for a party that will conduct nominations pointing out that the bungled Jubilee party primaries in 2017 made some leaders lose their seats.

"I will be going for a party that will give me a direct ticket because that will assure me of being on the ballot," he said.
