Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has told Gatundu MP, Moses Kuria that he is not interested in becoming his deputy President if he runs in 2022.

Kituyi was speaking Wednesday on Jeff Koingange Live TV show, when Mr Kuria sent a message asking him if the former Trade Minister in the Mwai Kibaki administration would consider being his running mate.

“The tail does not wag a dog,” was Mr Kituyi’s immediate terse response, much to the amusement of show host, Jeff Koinange.

Dr Kituyi, 63, became Secretary-General of UNCTAD on 1 September 2013. Immediately prior, Kituyi was Chief Executive of the Kenya Institute of Governance, based in Nairobi. He served as Kenya’s Minister of Trade and Industry from 2002 to 2007.
