The ANC leader said he is the only op­po­si­tion can­di­date who can re­move the “mal­func­tion­ing” Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion from power. He urged the Luhya com­mu­nity to join him and other Kenyans to re­move the “abu­sive” regime. He urged Cord co-prin­ci­pals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses We­tang’ula to sup­port him.

ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi has said he is the only op­po­si­tion can­di­date who can re­move the “mal­func­tion­ing” Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion from power.

He urged the Luhya com­mu­nity to join him and other Kenyans to re­move the “abu­sive” regime.

“Any­one sup­port­ing Ju­bilee in this re­gion is lost. The regime has the au­dac­ity to tell us we can only smell the meat, even if we cook it,” Mudavadi said.

He urged Cord co-prin­ci­pals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses We­tang’ula to sup­port him.

“You want Ju­bilee send pack­ing by 8am on Au­gust 8, 2017? We have one weapon against this fright­ful regime – Musalia Mudavadi. We have no time to ar­gue. I am will­ing, ready and rear­ing to go,” Mudavadi said.

He said the anti-party hop­ping bill Ju­bilee thought would help it can only work against them. Mudavadi said many politi­cians who “hopped, skipped and jumped” to Ju­bilee are now turn­ing back in droves.

“They were lied to that a new party was be­ing formed. They even be­lieved they will be made its of­fi­cial own­ers. What is the truth now? The Ju­bilee Al­liance Party of­fi­cials were re­cy­cled and now they lead JP. They now know if Kanu had own­ers, Ju­bilee is a land­lord who locks you out for higher rent,” he said.

Mudavadi was ad­dress­ing mourn­ers dur­ing the burial of Vi­higa Se­na­tor Ge­orge Khaniri’s niece in Hamisi con­stituency on Satur­day.

He urged Vi­higa residents to let him hunt for votes away from home be­cause Luhyas alone can­not make him pres­i­dent.

“I have to add to our num­bers. I will be away most of the time, but re­mem­ber where we are go­ing,” Mudavadi said. He said he has no pre­ferred ANC can­di­dates for elec­tive po­si­tions.

Mudavadi urged party mem­bers not to use his name to stop oth­ers from join­ing the party. He said ANC mem­bers will choose can­di­dates demo­crat­i­cally.
