Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi says we are suffering as a nation because of Jubilee policies.
In a breakfast interview with Kameme FM, the former Vice President said that DP William Ruto is just being mischievous and he can’t be our savior.
“Let us face facts as Kenyans. We are suffering as a nation because of Jubilee policies. Ruto can’t be our savior. He is just being mischievous,” he said.
The former Finance minister called on Ruto’s resignation saying he can’t disown a government he is part of without offering his resignation.
“We and Deputy President William Ruto were among those who called for various amendments such as depoliticisation of the electoral commission and the judiciary ombudsman office, strengthening Senate to ring fence devolution e.t.c and all this has been incorporated in the final BBI bills. Why then would you continue opposing?” he posed.
The ANC leader commended Uhuru and opposition leader Raila Odinga for listening to rivals and cultivating consensus on the constitutional reform movement.
Mudavadi also clarified that an endorsement from the sitting President ahead of 2022 would complicate his presidential bid saying there is no pact between him and the president.
He explained that such an endorsement would likely be seen as imposing a candidate on voters against their will.
“I think it is for this reason that Uhuru has revoked the earlier talk of him serving 10 years and his deputy William Ruto another 10. He realized the harm that a president being seen as imposing a person can cause a candidate,” Mudavadi.
