"Prime Minister Raila Odinga cannot win the next polls. I challenge him to drop the presidential bid". These are the words said by Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi on Friday as he attacked the PM.
Addressing rallies in Meru during his second day campaign tour the Sabatia Mp said no presidential candidate can win an election without forming an alliance with the like-minded parties.
“I can assure you that no single party can win an election without walking hand in hand with others to form a powerful force to win with the Majority votes,”said Mudavadi.
The presidential aspirant who claimed that he has no regrets to leave Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) reiterated that he is confident that ODM will not form the next government and urged Prime Ministers to quit the race.
Speaking in a rally at Maua stadium,Muriri in Tigania East Musalia said the politics of the prime minister are outdated and only geared at singling out certain communities.
“If someone decides to walk alone and categorize Kenyans he cannot qualify to be a leader and I urge Kenyans to vote wisely and vote for a candidate who is ready to unite all Kenyans,” he said.
The former local government Minister said the premier and his allies should be focused on modern politics other than become a lone ranger expecting to be voted in by certain community.
Mudavadi hinted that they are on talk with Uhuru Kenyatta,William Ruto, Kalonzo Musyoka and APK founder Kiraitu Murungi to form an alliance ahead of the general elections.
“We want to walk together with like -minded parties ahead of the general election so that we can win with the majority vote and to avoid a run-off presidential elections,” said Musalia.
Musalia trashed Raila reform credentials saying true reformist are the ones who fought for the independence of this nation.
“We cannot talk of reform when the standards of living are still high, many youths in the country are jobless and many health centers are not up to standard,” he said
Mudavadi said Kenyans should not be misled by politicians who call themselves reformist just to woo voter for their own political interest.
