Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi has clarified that the ODM National Executive Council (NEC) meeting which had been scheduled for today, has been postponed to Wednesday next week.
This he says is due to the party’s ongoing membership registration in its bid to timely comply with the Political Parties Act.
Speaking in Kisumu after attending the 6th annual general meeting of Local Authorities Provident Fund (LAP Fund), Mudavadi dispelled fears of a simmering row within the ODM party and instead stated that the orange party was going through a major transformation in the run up to the general election.
Mudavadi who has his eyes set on the party’s presidential ticket, told the party’s supporters not to be a worried lot as the party was only experiencing internal democracy.
‘Whatever you are hearing outside there should not make you have butterflies, all this is part of democracy which the party strongly stands for’, he asserted.
The Sabatia MP also took the time to appeal for peace, sobriety and mature politics ahead of the elections, adding that whatever happened in 2007/2008 should not be allowed to re-occur again.
On his part, Vihiga MP, Yusuf Chanzu, urged Kenyans not to vote in leaders based on their tribal affiliations, but instead make decisions centered on a candidate’s performance.
‘ Do not vote for somebody based on what he or she is giving you, but you should endeavor to vote for somebody based on what he has done to improve your daily lives’, he said.
