Ronald Karauri, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SportPesa, has announced that he will run for the Kasarani parliamentary seat.
“Today, I declare that I will run for their next Member of Parliament in Kasarani,” he said.
The former Kenya Airways pilot however, did not disclose which party he will vie under.
He promised residents that he will transform the Constituency if elected in the August 2022 polls.
“I can say, here and today, that together we will change the face of Kasarani Constituency,” he said.
He said that the people of Kasarani, and Kenya as a whole, need quality leadership that will champion issues in healthcare, youth employment and, more so, sports as a means of employment for the youth.
Karauri will be seeking to unseat the incumbent Mercy Gakuya who was elected on a Jubilee ticket.
Jackson Ngechu Makini alias CMB Prezzo has also declared interest for the seat.
