Former Naivasha Member of Parliament John Mututho has hinted at contesting any seat between Senatorial, Gubernatorial and Presidential.

Addressing journalists in Nakuru town, he said he is in a good position and capable of contesting any of the three top seats in the country.

Mututho, who in 2017 unsuccessfully contested the Nakuru Gubernatorial seat, believes he is the man to change the political space.

He said those going around in the name of early campaigns are just political armatures adding that the real people like him are yet to show up, and that they will do so at the right time.

“I have all it takes and when the right time comes, I will be unveiling campaigns and state which of the three seats I will be going for. But for sure I won’t go for MCA, MP but anything between Senatorial and Presidency” he said.

The former Naivasha has passion in reviving collapsed industries and providing a conducive environment for businesses.

Mututho, who is also the founder of rehabilitation centre for drug addicts ‘John Mututho Empowerment Centre’ has passion in helping the young people reform from slavery of drugs and substance abuse.

Before his service in Parliament, Mututho worked in the civil service for 11 years and was a coordinator of the International Agencies and Government of Kenya projects in Arid and Semi Arid Lands (ASAL) for 2 years.

He designed water harvesting systems implemented by FAO in Kenya and Ethiopia using shallow pit systems.

He was also Chairman of Board of Governors Naivasha Girls Secondary School for 7 years and helped transform the school into a top performer.

He founded Computers for Schools Kenya (CFSK) in 2002, an NGO through which more than 70,000 computers have been distributed to schools countrywide.

In Parliament, Mututho served as Chairman Departmental Committee on Agriculture, Lands and Natural Resources which later renamed the Departmental Committee on Agriculture, Livestock and Cooperatives that then oversaw 6 Ministries.

Mututho is also known for introducing the Alcohol Control Act which among other things limits the operation time of bars and others alcohols selling outlets to 5:00 PM till 11:00 PM on weekdays and 2:00 PM to 11:00 PM on weekends and legalizes consumption and sale of traditional alcoholic beverages.
