Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has promised to release shocking political statements.
Mudavadi who was speaking in Nyamira town on Sunday, January 16, asked Kenyans to brace themselves for a mighty political pronouncement on January 23.
“January tutatoa msimamo ambao utaleta msisimko wa ardhi katika Kenya hii,” Musalia Mudavadi said.
The former Vice President further dismissed speculations that he is warming up for a political coalition with Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Mudavadi who is among the One Kenya Alliance principals was in Nyamira for a series of political engagements ahead of his titanic battle with William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
He pointed out that he is his own man who does not need anyone to decide his political future.
“Kazi yetu sio kutafta mababe. Kazi yetu sio ya kusema biashara ni ya watu wakubwa peke yake. Kaiz yetu sio kusema uchumi wa Kenya usaidie wale wakubwa pekee. Tunataka Uchumi wa Kenya usaidie wakubwa kwa wadogo,” he said.
Mudavadi was accompanied by Nyamira Governor Amos Nyaribo, his deputy James Gisami, and Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja among others.
Mudavadi’s tour in Nyamira comes barely a day after he skipped the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) meeting in Nakuru County meant to pick the coalition’s flag bearer.
OKA principals Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Gideon Moi (Kanu), and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya) met on Friday, January 14, at Elementaita Nakuru County in a meeting aimed at naming their candidate who will compete with William Ruto and Raila Odinga.
But the former Sabatia MP was physically not present; Kivumbi.co.ke could not immediately establish whether or not the ANC leader sent anyone to represent him in the crucial meeting.
Although the reasons for his absence were not clear, it is suspected that the 2013 presidential candidate might have been disappointed in the report that had endorsed the Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to be the OKA flag bearer.
