Former United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) boss Mukhisa Kituyi hit out at the Amani National Congress Musalia Mudavadi for reducing himself to the level of MP Oscar Sudi.
Speaking in Vihiga on Wednesday, May 25, during the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party leaders forum, Kituyi said he expected the former vice president to help the Kenya Kwanza alliance leaders improve on their reasoning capacity but to his surprise, nothing has changed.
“When Musalia joined Ruto’s team, I thought people like (MP Oscar) Sudi would tone down on their remarks because he would help them,” Kituyi said.
Kituyi who recently shelved his presidential ambition in favor of Raila Odinga gave an example where Kapseret MP blamed President Uhuru Kenyatta for the surge in fuel prices, a situation he says is majorly a result of the war in Ukraine.
“I thought Musalia would tell Sudi ‘don’t expose our ignorance. This is a result of the war.’
“After Musalia going there (in Kenya Kwanza) instead of Sudi adopting Musalia’s language, it’s Musalia who is speaking like Sudi,” Kituyi said.
Kenya Kwanza alliance where Mudavadi is principal has in the recent past blamed President Uhuru for the high cost of living facing Kenyans.
On several occasions dismissed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s explanation that high fuel prices have been necessitated by the Ukraine-Russia war.
Mukhisa Kituyi further dismissed the probability of Musalia and just Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula delivering 70 percent of the Western Kenya vote to Kenya Kwanza.
Kituyi stated that he was Mudavadi’s presidential campaign manager in 2013 where he helped him garner 400,000 votes, 300,000 of which came from the Bukusu subtribe.
“So, if he promises that he is going to get 70 percent of Luhya land and he could not get 20 percent of Maragoli, what does he mean,” Kituyi posed.
