Raila welcomes Mudavadi back to ODM

25 September 2015, 17:10 Dareel Eric

Nairobi - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party leader, Raila Odinga has called on Amani National Congress Party leader, Musalia Mudavadi to team up with him and form a formidable force for the 2017 General Elections.

Raila said that the position Mudavadi held in the party as the deputy party leader was still vacant and waiting for his return.

He said there was no need to always come up with new parties aligned to specific regions in the run up to the general elections, but instead strengthen the ones existing.

“Politics must be clean ideologies that bring people together. Leaders are the ones who have continued dividing Kenyans by aligning them to specific parties. Ethnic politics should come to an end,” said Raila.

He said a time should come when only parties that have clean ideologies and have cultivated values over the past several years will be allowed to serve the interests of the people.

He said parties often lose their ideologies when they dismantle and have to be rebranded again over the electioneering periods.

“Nyerere (former Tanzanian president, now the late) helped Tanzania by creating values and ideologies that brought the people together. This has helped people from minority tribes in Tanzania to become presidents,” he said.

He added, “People who are united in diversity are a successful lot.”

He further laughed off claims by Deputy President William Ruto that he could not win an election, saying that the DP has forgotten too soon they were in a winning team together in 2007.

“I’m surprised that Ruto can now claim that I cannot win an election yet we were together in 2007 and won but it was then bangled,” he said.

The CORD principal said that the ideologies that ODM stands for are the same he has been fighting for and is not ready to let them go.

“We want to empower our people, create wealth, give education and impart skills for plenty to be found within our borders. That is what Raila Odinga wants to see in his lifetime,” he said.
