Wanga­mati’s anti-Mu­davadi re­marks are per­sonal, not the com­mu­nity’s – el­ders

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

Disquiet is brew­ing at the Luhya El­ders’ Fo­rum over chair­man Patrick Wanga­mati’s com­ment that ANC leader Musalia Mu­davadi “is a Ju­bilee mole”.

Sources told the Star yes­ter­day that el­ders are con­cerned that Wanga­mati is mak­ing state­ments with­out con­sult­ing mem­bers. They say his com­ments are mis­in­ter­preted as the fo­rum’s po­si­tion.

“The state­ment should be taken as a per­sonal one and not the fo­rum’s posi- tion. We will only make our po­si­tion as a fo­rum af­ter thor­ough con­sul­ta­tions,” the source said.

An­other source said, “Right now, we’re con­cen­trat­ing on Luhya unity.”

The fo­rum brings to­gether 18 mem­bers rep­re­sent­ing the 18 Luhya sub­tribes.

Mu­davadi is push­ing for the for­ma­tion of the Na­tional Su­per Al­liance to unite op­po­si­tion lead­ers to beat the Ju­bilee Party in the Au­gust 8, 2017 polls.
