Mu­davadi is a Ju­bilee mole – MP

How can you join our house and start dic­tat­ing to us that you want to be the Cord pres­i­den­tial can­di­date? That is out­ra­geous and beats logic – Wangamati

ANC leader Musalia Mu­davadi should not be al­lowed to join Cord be­cause “he is be­ing used by the Ju­bilee Party to cause di­vi­sions”, a nom­i­nated MP has said.

Ford Kenya MP Pa­trick Wangamati yes­ter­day said, “How can you join our house and start dic­tat­ing to us that you want to be the Cord pres­i­den­tial can­di­date? That is out­ra­geous and beats logic. If you want to join us, wait for di­rec­tion.”

He said Mu­davadi “has never been a se­ri­ous per­son”. Wangamati said Mu- davadi should not ex­pect to be Cord’s flag­bearer be­cause it “has three can­di­dates who have fought tooth and nail to en­sure the coali­tion is strong and they can­not al­low an out­sider to join with out­ra­geous de­mands.”

“Mu­davadi is a Ju­bilee mole and can­not be trusted,” he said. Wangamati, a Luhya el­der, urged Cord lead­ers to in­ves­ti­gate Mu­davadi “thor­oughly” be­fore al­low­ing him to form an al­liance with the coali­tion.

But ODM Sirisia MP hope­ful Moses Nan­dalwe warned Wangamati against speak­ing for Cord.

“He [Wangamati] has failed el­ders. He should un­der­stand that Western re­gion stands to ben­e­fit if Mu­davadi joins Cord,” he said yes­ter­day.

‘WANGAMATI HAS FAILED EL­DERS. HE SHOULD KNOW WESTERN WILL BEN­E­FIT IF MU­DAVADI JOINS CORD’
