Mudavadi ridicules Kenyatta-Odinga unity pact
Amani National Congress leader and NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi has poked holes at the unity pact signed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition chief Raila Odinga saying it was an agreement between two individuals.
Speaking when he attended a church service at the Friends Quakers Church at Valley Road, Nairobi, the ANC leader said he does not have a guarantee that the handshake was genuine, noting that the country needs sincere leadership that focuses on the development agenda.
“Kenya needs genuine leadership, genuine handshakes and a genuine national dialogue. What guarantee do we have that the handshake and dialogue is genuine?”posed Mudavadi.
Mudavadi insisted on the need for national dialogue noting that it must be all inclusive to ensure the country does not experience any bloodshed because of election.
“We must have national dialogue, which is all inclusive and built on a solid rock so that the outcome will be there for prosperity. I don’t have to sit on the dialogue table, but I will be happy to know that the dialogue is build on a solid foundation,” said Mudavadi.
He also urged government officials to respect the rule of law.
“Follow the court orders and respect the law, becasue that is where God will come from. If you do not respect the law, then what moral authority will you have to tell the other person to respect the law,” said Mudavadi.
“In the last few years, we are seeing a society where impunity has come to reside with us. We wake up impunity. We sleep impunity.”
Mudavadi’s sentiments come just a day after Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula severed ties with Opposition chief Raila Odinga.
Speaking at a funeral in Nalondo, Bungoma County, Wetangula said: “For my friend Raila Odinga, I have no hatred with you but our journey together is over. I have my own course now.”
