Mudavadi asks Luhyas to use their numbers to oust Jubilee gov't

24 February 2016, 08:08 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi has urged people from western region to use their numbers in voting in ousting Jubilee government from power.

Mudavadi asked leaders to mobilise many people to register as voters in ongoing Voter Registration exercise.

"Do not just take pride in your numbers. Translate your numbers into IDs; and IDs into voters' cards and those cards into votes. That is your weapon, your salvation. Don't allow the rest of the country to laugh at you anymore," he said.

He noted that there are 211,000 people in Vihiga who should get voters cards, but since Monday, IEBC clerks have been idle with very few people registering.

He asked provincial administration to make it their responsibility to distribute uncollected IDs.

"Every parent should ensure their children acquire IDs and register to vote," he said.

He asked all elected and aspiring leaders to mobilise people to register for IDs and voters cards.

He asked County governments to show it cares and release funds for public participation to mobilise registration.

Mudavadi warned Jubilee government that any attempt to deny people from Western Region easy acquisition of IDs amounts to sowing discord and chaos.

"You might steal elections but you might have no county to govern," he warned.

"I would like everyone to join ANC to promote our strength in unity. The country is gearing for elections. Every community is putting its best leadership forward; they are coalescing around one preferred party. It is time we did the same," said Mudavadi.

He added, "Let some leaders not confuse you that they are competing with me to be president. I am not in their party or coalition. Unlike others, I am following no one. I am not waiting for miracles of white smoke or foreigners to make me president. I am in ANC and the person I want to defeat in elections is incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta."
