Nan­dalwe says Mu­davadi will not re­place any­one in the op­po­si­tion, crit­i­cises those op­posed to the move

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

Sirisia ODM par­lia­men­tary as­pi­rant Moses Nan­dalwe has said those op­posed to ANC leader Musalia Mu­davadi’s en­try into the op­po­si­tion al­liance are work­ing for Ju­bilee.

He said Mu­davadi is “not com­ing to re­place any­one”, but to for­tify a win­ning for­mula to re­move Ju­bilee from power. “The en­try of Musalia Mu­davadi in the coali­tion should cel­e­brated but not to be crit­i­cised by those who are afraid of be­ing dis­placed,” Nan­dalwe told the Star on the phone yes­ter­day.

He said the main task is uni­fy­ing the op­po­si­tion to beat Ju­bilee and not cre­ate di­vi­sions among the Cord prin­ci­pals to sat­isfy per­sonal in­ter­ests.

Nan­dalwe termed re­marks by Luhya Elders’ Fo­rum chair­man and nom­i­nated MP Patrick Wanga­mati three weeks ago that Mu­davadi is a mole in Cord “per­sonal and reck­less”. “This issue of brand­ing oth­ers moles that has cost the op­po­si­tion a lot must come to an end. What we need is peace and unity and not in­nu­en­dos, po­lit­i­cal con­jec­ture and witch-hunt,” he said.

On Oc­to­ber 26, Wanga­mati said Mu­davadi can­not be trusted to join Cord as he is out to cause di­vi­sions.
