The strongest challenger to Ruto presidential bid is not Raila Odinga. It is Mudavadi. Ruto team has engaged backbiting, provoking and even in poaching from Mudavadi his loyal generals latest being Barack Muluka who was SG to ANC party.
Mudavadi has been seen as consolidating his support by holding meetings of uniting Kenyan leaders, latest being at Stoni Athi where he met all the Nasa affiliates. It is at that meeting that the war of words started on December 23rd when H.E. Mudavadi criticised the DP for allegedly hoodwinking Kenyans that he could improve the country’s economic fortunes when he has been part of the failed policies of the Jubilee government.
“Kenya is where it is today because the government in power borrowed heavily, then we have a guy who has been in the kitchen for the last eight years pretending he can now cook better food for the country,” Mr Mudavadi had said in direct reference to DP Ruto’s presidential bid.
But While addressing mourners on Saturday, December 26, at during the internment of Maurice Mabonga ( the father of Bumula MP Mwambu Mabonga), the DP said he will not support Musalia Mudavadi he is a dynasty.
“ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi is the son of a minister and even Wetang’ula here, I am told, is the son of likuru (village elder) while my father was just a mere peasant and not even a village elder yet you are asking me to support them. Is that logical?” he posed.
*HUSTLER VS DYNASTIES IS A DANGER CARD RUTO USES ON UHURU*
The moment Ruto uses that card of dynasties versus hustlers, know he is going for the president. Ruto has realized that Mudavadi is enjoying support even from Uhuru. To stop this support, Ruto is terming any person close to Uhuru as a rich spoilt brat that cannot lead. That to any intelligent Kenyan is very dangerous. It is meant to cause class divisions. It will divide the country and take it down.
*WHY MUDAVADI MUST STOP RUTO*
Mudavadi is the only person currently telling Ruto on the face that he is the main architect of the Jubilee regime failures, and who could not be trusted with leadership at a point when the economy needs major shifts in policy.
As Kenyans we should not allow President Kenyatta to be succeeded by a leader who will take the country backward by pursuing the same economic policies that brought the country where it is.
For the Luhya nation, let us not allow Ruto to come and plan for us. If Ruto wants to deal with the Mulembe nation, he knows who our leaders are. Sneaking into funerals and village football matches to come and insult Mudavadi..we will NOT ALLOW.
Mudavadi must quickly prove to Kenyans and the Luhya nation that Ruto is drunk with power and the number one enemy of devolution.
Mudavadi must break from his calm and diplomatic nature, and speak to defend the devolved system of government, the economy and the people of kenya from the so called Hustler philosophy to the last drop of his blood.
Mudavadi, will never walk alone on this.
