In November 2021, former Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi officially ditched Amani National Congress (ANC) party associated with former Sabatia MP Musalia Mudavadi for United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
While it was believed that Havi ditched ANC for UDA over a party ticket, it has emerged that the lawyer dumped Mudavadi because he considered him a very lazy politician.
In an interview with the Daily Nation, Havi described the former vice president as someone who does not exhibit leadership qualities.
According to Havi, apart from lacking leadership skills, tMusalia Mudavadi lacks the requisite political foresight like other politicians, including William Ruto.
He labeled Deputy President William Ruto as a vibrant and focused leader who knows what he wants unlike his “uncle” Mudavadi, who cuts the image of s person out of touch with reality.
“Mudavadi is very slow and embodies the kind of people who want to be pushed. He is not determinate and that is why I abandoned him,” Havi said defiantly when asked why he chose DP Ruto’s party as opposed to Mudavadi’s.
Havi is targeting to unseat Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi of the Orange Democratic Alliance (ODM) who is seeking to retain his seat for a record third time.
In what may split the Kenya Kwanza votes in the area, Mudavadi’s ANC is sponsoring Sylvia Mulama against Nelson Havi in the same race.
