Mudavadi denies reports on being fronted to succeed President Kenyatta
ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi has refuted claims that he is being fronted by a section of leaders allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta as his favourite successor come 2022.
Mudavadi says he will seek the mandate to lead Kenya from the voters and his 2022 Presidential bid is not pegged on any endorsement from someone.
“Let us not wait for someone to hand us that position. Register us voters because all we want is numbers. I’m not waiting to be handed leadership. I can tell you that the password to the presidency is in numbers,” said Mudavadi.
The ANC leader was speaking in Kivagala, Maragoli North in Vihiga County during the burial of the Late Mzee Francis Chogo, a former mayor in the defunct Vihiga Municipal Council
Mudavadi says he aims to transform the lives of Kenyans and turn around the dwindling economy of this country and this will form the basis by which he will be seeking the top seat come 2022.
The Amani National Congress party leader says his agenda number one will focus on reviving the economy, creating jobs and uniting the country.
He reiterated the need of Kenyans to interrogate the leaders they want to vote in office before casting a single vote for them.
He also cautioned Kenyans to be extra vigilant and cautious and not to fall into the trap of politics of ethnicity and divisions saying transition times in Presidential elections are usually delicate and trying.
Present were COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli and ANC Members of Parliament Ayub Savula, Alfred Agoi, Ernest Kagesi, Beatrice Adagala and a host of MCAs.
