Senate Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki has urged politicians to stop 2022 politics.

He said leaders should concentrate on 2017 which will determine the future politics.

He declined commenting on his 2022 political bid saying that he will announce it after the 2017 elections.

"I am know concentrating on 2017 politics but the Senate is not the limit of my political career," said Prof Kindiki.

However, he said he will not contest for senatorial seat in 2022.

In a meeting at Gaciongo Market on Monday, Prof Kindiki assured the residents that Tharaka Nithi "must feature in the national politics in future."

"We are not reviewing our future plans as we have plenty," he said.

Last year, the Ameru community leaders led by Njuri Ncheke elders endorsed Prof Kindiki as the community spokesman.

Prof Kindiki has in the past also shown interest to be Deputy President William Ruto's running mate in 2022 elections.
