Speaking hours after the deputy president announced a pact with Mudavadi, the more than 30 MPs from ODM, Jubilee and the newly-formed Democratic Alliance Party of Kenya (DAP-K) stated that the move was not an option for economic development.
In a joint statement read by the now-shaky One Kenya Alliance spokesperson Frederick Okango who is also the KANU Secretary General, the leaders disowned Mudavadi saying that they are unsafe in his hands and that of William Ruto.
“Unfortunately we have to part ways since some of his friends are not our friends and we are unsafe with them. It is time to move forward, it is time to end the nasty political games,” Okango said.
While wishing the former presidential candidate all the best, DAP-K party leader Wafula Wamunyinyi said the ANC leader has plagiarized the economic revival of the NARC government to pretend it was his own.
Wamunyinyi who is also the MP for Kanduyi further rubbished off allegations that William Ruto-Musalia Mudavadi is not the solution for our economic development.
“It is ironical that as Musalia works about the economic problems of the country, he has invited one of the foremost and greatest economic saboteurs of our time,” Wamunyinyi said.
Speaking at Bomas of Kenya on Sunday, January 23, 2022, during the ANC National Delegates Congress, the deputy president revealed the plan to hold joint rallies with like-minded parties.
“We will work with ANC, Ford Kenya, and like-minded parties that want to walk this journey of bringing Kenyans together,” Ruto said.
The DP said the journey of uniting Kenya has begun with the ‘earthquake’ declaration by Mudavadi at Bomas of Kenya, now it moves to other corners of the country.
“Next stop will be in Nakuru on Wednesday, then Western on Friday, and then on Saturday we will be in Central,” Ruto added.
