In Summary
  • Mr Mudavadi castigated his rivals for forcing Kibra residents to elect leaders who have no vision.

Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi on Monday took a swipe at ODM leader Raila Odinga for abandoning leaders who stood by him in the past.

Mr Mudavadi laughed off Mr Odinga’s new allies, saying the governors now supporting him are only out to seek protection due to corruption cases.

While campaigning for Mr Eliud Owalo in Kibra, he also dismissed a pledge by Deputy President William Ruto that the Jubilee government will address the high cost of living.

The ANC leader said most of the governors working with Mr Odinga are being investigated by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

Thus, he said that they hope Mr Odinga will “slow down the investigations”. Mr Mudavadi said there is no difference between ODM and Jubilee, adding that both parties have failed the nation.
