We did not betray anybody, ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi has said.

Musalia Mudavadi, the head of the Amani National Congress (ANC), responded to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reported disappointment with the former Vice President.

For forming an alliance, Uhuru chastised Mudavadi, his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula, and Deputy President William Ruto. Instead, the President had asked Mudavadi and Wetangula to strike an agreement with Raila Odinga, Kenya’s former Prime Minister.

While addressing a crowd in Baringo County, Mudavadi told Uhuru that he had the right to be disheartened by his declaration which caused a political earthquake.”I want to tell my friend, President Uhuru, I have seen in the newspapers that he has said he is disappointed with Musalia Mudavadi. You have a right to be disappointed,” stated Mudavadi.
“Kenyans are even more disappointed. Kenyans are hungry, jobless, overtaxed and have a huge debt burden. Kenyans are disappointed, let us tell each other the truth. Kenyans are tired,” Mudavadi remarked.In Baringo, the ANC boss impressed the crowd by returning to his origins. In contrast to online information claiming that he was born in Sabatia, he stated that he was born in Eldama Ravine.
Mudavadi also stated that he his step-mother, Rosbella Jerono, was born in the same town in Baringo County. “Before I say anything, the people of Baringo, let me remind you that I am one of you.I was born here like my mother Rosbella. Albert and Douglas Chemitei, who am sure are in the crowd are my uncles,” he stated as the crowd cheered.

The ANC leader has picked an aggressive campaign strategy since joining Ruto’s camp. Similar to the DP, Musalia has openly criticised Uhuru’s administration and extended the same to Raila, his friend-turned-foe. In his speech at Bomas of Kenya on January 23, Mudavadi claimed that Raila was the state’s project. He underlined that Uhuru and his proxies attempted to woo him to join the Azimio la Umoja movement.

“I am privileged to announce that the spector called Azimio, is not an option when it comes to partnership. We have had enough of this self preservation schemes. We do not want anybody, even at the lowest level, to feel intimidated when making their 2022 choices.

To counter the UDA-ANC coalition, Uhuru had a closed-door meeting with Western Region leaders two days later at State House in Nairobi, where he reaffirmed his support for Raila
“They (Mudavadi and Wetangula) are lost. They would have benefited had they stayed with Raila. Kenyans will be in good hands under Raila’s leadership instead of those people that they are running to,” Uhuru remarked..
