Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has revealed reasons why he believes ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi will win next year’s presidential election.
Sakaja, who was speaking on Sunday during a Church Service at Christ the King Cathedral in Nakuru said more than ten political parties in the country, including Jubilee, are set to support Musalia Mudavadi in his bid to take over the button from retiring President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Majority of the Jubilee leaders across the country including senators and Members of Parliament have said they long for Jubilee party to support to Musalia Mudavadi’s for the top seat,
“Jubilee party and about ten other political parties that we have been talking to want to support Musalia Mudavadi,” Sakaja said.
While dismissing the ruling party’s plan to merge with Raila’s ODM, Sakaja criticized Jubilee’s top leadership for making decisions without involving other Jubilee members.
“For those who think they are deciding on our behalf, my brothers (David) Murathe and (Raphael) Tuju please, as a party we have allowed the two of you to go and join ODM,” he said.
Speaking at the event, Musalia Mudavadi, the ANC leader, who has already announced his candidacy for the presidency, said he will prioritize tax cuts if he becomes the next tenant at State House, Nairobi after the 2022 General Election.
“If God grants me the opportunity to be the leader of this country I will lower taxes. Blessed Sunday,” Mudavadi said.
Despite calls by a section of leaders including President Uhuru Kenyatta to revive the National Super Alliance Coalition,Mudavadi has flatly refused to work with the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, accusing him of being untrustworthy.
“After my candidature in 2013 where I was position three, so many people accused me that I am not a team player and I am not supportive and I gave them a chance in 2017 (to be presidential candidates) but we are still in opposition (since they failed to win the presidency),
“This time we are going to face off against each other. I won’t leave anything to chance,” Mudavadi said.
