Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi says he has no plans of abandoning National Super Alliance (NASA) for another political outfit.
The NASA co-principal said that he will stick by the Raila Odinga-led alliance and continue pushing for electoral justice and restoration of democracy in the country.
He dismissed a section of politicians both from Jubilee and NASA pressuring him to ditch the opposition, stating that he will cannot dump a reform-oriented vehicle.
“Some in NASA and Jubilee are pleading with me to abandon the reform train. That I should calm down; let them get on the gravy train. They don’t know what steel I am made from. This is my New Year message to them; let me assure you I cannot jump off this electoral justice reform train into an empty cattle carriage," he said.
"Electoral reform is not for Raila or Mudavadi. It is for posterity. It is for all Kenyans. Every vote must count. Elections must stop being a ritual of theft. Elections must stop being a conspiracy of one, two or three tribes to steal from others. Every Kenyan must have an opportunity to vote and to win or lose fairly. Kenya is not a monarch," he added.
He accused President Kenyatta's administration of condoning corruption, terming it a group of pirates.
“The looting is brazen. A helicopter is allegedly bought for Sh2.7 billion, put in the air without insurance and immediately crashed to avoid audit queries. Sh2 billion supposedly buy police booth that police are not wearing. Do you call this a government or a group of pirates?” he wondered.
Mudavadi was speaking in Butula, Busia County during a traditional ceremony to install his as a Luhya Kingpin. Several MPs including
Vihiga Senator George Khaniri; MPs Sakwa Bunyasi (Nambale),Joseph Oyula (Butula), Alfred Agoi (Sabatia) and former Butula MP Alfred Odhiambo endorsed Mudavadi's Presidential ambition in 2022 elections.
