Uhuru looks to make up for 2002 defeat

03 December 2012, 14:03

Nairobi - After sealing a coalition deal with Eldoret North MP William Ruto, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta looks set to make his second stab at the presidency after failing to impress in his first bid ten years ago.

According to the Standard, if Uhuru eventually makes it to the ballot paper for the March 4 General Election — which appeared more on course yesterday — he will be seeking to make up for the resounding loss he suffered in 2002, when he lost to President Kibaki.

Then appearing more as a political novice, who was largely relying on the support of retired President Moi and drawing the inspiration from the fact that he was contesting on the independence party that had ruled the country for over four decades, Uhuru fell by the sides in his first attempt for the top job.
