Amani leader Musalia Mu­davadi has said the Na­tional Su­per Al­liance, or NASA, is about end­ing Ju­bilee mis­rule that has seen Kenya de­te­ri­o­rate.

He said on Mon­day the yet-to-bereg­is­tered out­fit be­longs to all peo­ple who know Kenya “is in the ICU and will die if not res­cued from the mis­rule in which cor­rup­tion thrives and the na­tional debt is un­sus­tain­able, amid ris­ing poverty”.

“Let’s be in sol­i­dar­ity as po­lit­i­cal par­ties, trade unions, civil so­ci­ety, sac­cos, boda boda rid­ers, the youth, women, matatu own­ers, driv­ers, cooks and watch­men. NASAis not about the am­bi­tions of one per­son or po­lit­i­cal party. Our com­mon goal is to pro­tect Kenya,” Mu­davadi said.

He ac­cused the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion of fail­ing in its youth agenda and in­stead cor­rupt­ing the youth with the wrong val­ues such as “hus­tling as a vo­ca­tion”. Mu­davadi said Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto im­plants the “hus­tler men­tal­ity in youth” and only sees them as vot­ing ma­chines.

He said Ju­bilee evokes the agenda to steal from the youth. “They’ve cor­rupted ev­ery­thing and tar­get the morals of our youth. This cursed ad­min­is­tra­tion does not be­lieve in the val­ues of hard work, but a strange pseudo-work ethic called hus­tling. They proudly pro­claim them­selves hus­tlers as if those who work hard to earn a liv­ing are fools,” Mu­davadi said.

“As they loot the NYS and Youth En­ter­prise De­vel­op­ment Fund meant to em­power the youth, they “blind­fold them and in­doc­tri­nate them with hus­tling. Youth pas­sage to fame is by hus­tling.”

He said any­one claim­ing he is still in Ju­bilee be­cause “I took him there” is ly­ing. “These fel­lows, who over­stayed a visit to some­one’s home, should know they have aban­doned the elec­torate and have been for­got­ten. The lost sheep should carry their cross and not at­tempt to off­load it to me. My hands are full with ANC,” Mu­davadi said.
