Musalia Mudavadi has confirmed his willingness to join hands with CORD principals to ensure victory in the 2017 General Election.
The leader of the Amani National Congress (ANC), which has been bolstered by defections from elected officials to the party, declared that the Jubilee coalition must be trounced in next year’s polls.
Speaking during his three day campaign tour of the coast region, Mudavadi said:
”We should not allow the Jubilee coalition to run down this country for another term and if it means joining hands with my brothers at CORD, then I am ready for the sake of Kenyans.”
He urged the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy to remain united if beating Jubilee is the ultimate goal.
”I am ready talk with my brothers at CORD. We need to have a united front to dislodge the Jubilee coalition. We cannot afford to give them another term to continue plundering our economy. I will begin talks with Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula.”
There has been whispers of an imminent fallout in the CORD hierarchy with a few of them giving impressions of a possible pullout.
Mudavadi is urging the group to speak in one voice in order to win Kenyan voters confidence ahead of the polls.
He also put to bed the rumors of him being a possible running mate of DP William Ruto in 2022, saying he was not interested in what Jubilee was offering.
Musalia Mudavadi and the ANC have welcomed defected Jubilee members like Lamu Governor Issa Timamy and his deputy Eric Mugo. Members of the National Assembly John Bunyasi (Nambale), Ayub Savula (Lugari), Yusuf Chanzu (Vihiga), Alfred Agoi (Sabatia) and Alfred Sambu (Webuye East).
