Vihiga - Vihiga Senator George Khaniri wants Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Cord co-principal Raila Odinga to unite in order to defeat President Uhuru Kenyatta in next year’s general elections.
Khaniri said it would be futile for the two leaders to go their separate ways in the next year’s elections as they would open a softer spot for Uhuru to win the presidency again.
“If Mudavadi is not going to unite with Raila so that either of them gets the presidency come 2017, they should altogether retire from politics and forget about being this country’s presidents. This can happen only if they unite now for the common good,” Khaniri said.
He added, “Raila and Mudavadi have worked together in the past and produced sterling results at the national level. I don’t think if it can be very impossible for them to team up again and redeem the country.”

He noted that the current leadership of the country is a burden to Kenyans who struggle to make ends meet and should not be allowed to rule for another five years.
“The economy is dwindling every minute. Education is not taken serious. Health is in jeopardy. People are suffering across board. So what is the current government doing?” posed Khaniri.
The Senator said Jubilee government must be toppled by all means, including all other leaders uniting against them.
He said in case Raila or Mudavadi fail to unite and defeat Jubilee government, they should both retire from active politics.
“We do not want the two leaders who have been in political limelight for such long periods of time to continue struggling with their juniors in politics come 2022. This must be their last shot which must be perfected now,” he said.
Khaniri said he will be among those leaders who will vie for presidency in 2022 and does not need to compete by either Raila or Mudavadi during that time.
