Murang'a County Governor Mwangi Wa Iria on Monday said he is not going to retire from politics once his term in office comes to an end in 2022. 

The governor has hinted on vying for the top seat in the country's leadership in the next general election. 

Speaking in Murang'a, Wa Iria said he has all it takes to lead the country adding that his development track record speaks for itself. 

He said he already has his own party Civic Renewal Party (CRP) which he shall use to vie for the presidency adding that he shall mobilize other leaders from the area to use this party too. 

He said being the only governor who is serving for the second term in the central region, it shows he has the capacity to move to a higher level.

"There has been too much debate on who is going to take over from President Uhuru Kenyatta trading and I will be one of those vying for this position," he said. 

Wa Iria said for the eight years he has been in leadership he has learnt the dynamics in politics and come 2022 he will be sharpened politically.

"Those who think I will go home after this got it wrong because I am in politics to stay," he said.
