Mudavadi vows not to work with Uhuru, Ruto

Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi on Friday said he would not work with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.

He said he does not consider political competition as enmity but said he would not make another mistake of working with the two leaders.

He warned Kenyans against re-electing President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto saying they are not honest

He revisited events before the 2013 election when Mr Kenyatta had approached him to contest for presidency but later reneged on the agreement.

He claimed Mr Kenyatta told him he was not ready to contest and asked him to be the presidential candidate.

“That is why he sought Mudavadi out to be the flag bearer of Jubilee Coalition in 2013 but later reneged on the agreement,” said the ANC leader.

“I have learnt the hard way through deceit and backstabbing. This time I want to see decency restored in our politics,” he said.

The ANC leader said he was the best bet for National Super Alliance (Nasa) to defeat Jubilee.

The ANC leader said by creating Nasa he was offering trust as a value in leadership in Kenya “whereas Jubilee leadership has thrived on deceit and dishonesty.”

He claimed Jubilee is a “government of procurement” because of the debt it has accumulated.

“Recently I said Jubilee’s currency is deceit, default and their economic model is ‘tender-procurement’. I stand by that statement. The country is so indebted it could be auctioned.

“Kenyans need Nasa to clean up the mess Jubilee has visited on the country. I have enough experience to know what to do and what not to do. I shall endeavour for inclusivity and integration in government, fight corruption and grow the economy to create jobs,” he said.

He emphasised that he was in Nasa whose objective is to “remove Jubilee from power and return Kenya to sanity.”
