Nine former Members of Parliament of the Amani National Congress have launched an onslaught against their immediate former party leader, Musalia Mudavadi over his move to join the Kenya Kwanza Alliance that is fronted by Deputy President, William Ruto.
The MPs quit in a huff to join the Azimio La Umoja Movement that is fronting the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader as its presidential candidate.
Addressing the Bungoma Azimio La Umoja rally on Friday at the Posta Grounds, Lugari MP Ayub Savula who decamped to Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K) said nine MPs who were in ANC have joined him at DAP-K, thus rendering Mudavadi’s party a shell.
” I have now nine MPs compared to Mudavadi’s two to confirm our numerical strength ahead of the August 9th, General Elections, ” he said.
The MPs who quit ANC for Azimio la Umoja included Peter Nabulindo (Matungu), Christopher Aseka ( Khwisero), Titus Khamala (Lurambi), Tindi Mwale (Butere), Ayub Savula (Lugari), Oku Kaunya (Teso North), Benard Shinyali ( Ikolomani), Emmanuel Wangwe (Navakholo) and Godfrey Osotsi (nominated).
Luanda MP, Hon Chris Omulele (ODM) told his Emuhaya counterpart and former KUPPET national chairman, Omboko Milemba to ambadon Mudavadi camp that would leave him with only the Sabatia MP, Alfred Agoi.
The Supremacy battle between between DAP-K and Ford-K was evident during the rally with Wamunyinyi telling Wetangula to brace for a bruising battle as DAP-K is fronting for a strong candidate.
The mammoth crowd was in unison that the person to square it out with the Ford-K boss is Wamunyinyi after being prompted by Bungoma Governor, H.E Wycliffe Wangamati.
Defence Cabinet Secretary, Hon Eugene Wamalwa and former Kwanza MP, Noah Wekesa made startling revelations on why the Raila presidency is becoming a reality after the August 9th, 2022 general elections.
Armed with a walking stick that resembles the long crested eagle popularly known as Kwesule in Bukusu, Eugene said the bird which is famous for showing direction has predicted the winner of the Presidential race will come from Kisumu side.
Dr Wekesa on his part remembered with nostagia in 1969 when Elijah Masinde predicted that the person to hand the Luhya their first presidency will come from Lake Victoria.
“He also predicted that the first party to make a coalítion will win the polls. The ODM party leader became the first to make a coalition to give him a realistic chance of capturing the top seat in the land,” he said.
