Is Joshua Kutuny eyeing Langata parliamentary seat?

Cherangany member of parliament Joshua Kutuny has hinted at contesting in the Langata parliamentary race in 2022.

In a Facebook post on Monday, Kutuny pronounce that together with Raila Odinga and other leaders, they shall relentlessly work hard to ensure they reclaim Lang’ata constituency.

“2022 we shall bring back the glory of the mighty Lang’ata constituency. Journey begins!” posted the Kieleweke legislator.

The post appeared to suggest Kutuny is contemplating shifting political base from Cherangany to Langata Constituency in Nairobi county.

The constituency was long represented in the National Assembly by the former prime minister.

Nixon Korir won the seat in 2017 in what many political pundits decals a shock victory.

At the rally on Sunday, the ODM leaders expressed their desire to recapture the seat, saying that they were working a strategy towards that.

Langata constituency extended to Kibra until the promulgation of the new constitution which divided the constituency into two.

A section of Rift Valley leaders has vowed to ensure that Kutuny is not re-elected as the Cherangany MP.

His opposition to Dr William Ruto’s 2022 presidential aspirations has been castigated by the DP’s allies as betrayal
