ANC Deputy party leader Ayub Savula and Lugari Mp has laughed off President Uhuru Kenyatta's recent indirect endorsement of Raila Odinga for the country's top seat.
Speaking in Kibera where recently toured with Raila Odinga, President Uhuru Kenyatta made remarks that many interpreted as an endorsement to the ODM chief.
"When we came together, wasn’t there peace? So where is the problem? Isn’t that what we want? Don’t we want that work to continue? It is up to you. Will you make wise choices? Let us see how you will do it,” the President said heaping praises at Odinga.
However, Savula has poured cold water on Raila's support from the President, saying going by history, those backed by the state don't win presidential races.
“When you are termed a project, you will fail. Uhuru was termed a project of Moi, he failed. Kibaki tried to bring Musalia as a project in 2013 and failed. Kenyans have never voted for projects,” Savula said.
Mr Savula has been rooting for the Presidency of Musalia Mudavadi.
