Former Kibra MP seat aspirant on Green Congress Party Owiti Owayo has said he will contest the same seat in a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket in 2022.

"My dream is to get to parliament by any means necessary and use my seat to sponsor legislations which shall improve the living standards of our people especially women and youth," he said.
