Mudavadi declares interest in 2017 Presidential election
27 April 2015, 14:04
Bungoma - Amani Coalition leader, Musalia Mudavadi met Members of County Assemblies from Rift Valley, Nyanza and Western in a consultative forum where he said he will be vying for Presidency on the newly found political party, Amani National Congress (ANC).
Mudavadi said the choice for Kenyans in 2017 elections will be between stability by Amani Coalition on one hand and on the other, the chaos of incompetence by Jubilee or hypocrisy by Cord.
He reminded Kenyans about the 2013 elections saying the choice between Cord and Jubilee was a choice for chaos and it has come to pass.
“Problems being witnessed currently are as a result of the same,” he said.
Mudavadi was addressing the 68 Amani Coalition MCAs at Sosa Cottages in Vihiga County, where the MCAs present unanimously agreed to use ANC to seek re-election in 2017.

The former DPM said he had been stabbed in the back too many times and had decided to bring it to an end.
He said he will hold consultative meetings for political reawakening in western that will go on until 2017.
“For too long, we’ve rented our votes to others. It’s time we got a return on our investment,” he said, alluding to the perennial problem of Luhya’s “topping up” other people’s votes.
Musalia said that since the Jubilee government was opening jobs for other Kenyan tax payers, it should be encouraged rather than criticised.
“What do you gain by not appreciating change unless you want to foment chaos for the sake of power? Will that power also be exclusive?” he asked.
Musalia said that the next stop for the consultative forums will be at the Coast in the next two weeks.
