Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has severally been mentioned among candidates best suited to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta. Speculations have been rife that President Uhuru might endorse him for the 2022 top seat. This is after he proposed a rotational presidency during the burial of Mudavadi’s mother.
Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot has since come out to affirm that the former deputy prime minister has the right credentials to be Kenya’s President. However, he took issue with Mudavadi’s politics that is centered around Vihiga and Kakamega counties. The vocal Tangatanga senator has encouraged Mudavadi’s campaign team to ensure he reaches out to other regions to drum up support for his presidential bid.
“I struggle to understand @MusaliaMudavadi. He wants to be president of Kenya. He has the qualifications. No debate. But then his weekend itinerary rotates around. Vihiga to Kakamega, January to Dec. Somebody please hand his campaign team the correct Map of Kenya,” shared Senator Aaron Cheruiyot on Twitter.
This comes at a time when Mudavadi, KANU chairman Gideon Moi, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula have hinted at a political alliance ahead of 2022. They have already united for the upcoming by-elections. In Matungu, they will all support the ANC candidate, in Kabuchai, they will back the Ford Kenya candidate while in Machakos, they will jointly campaign for the Wiper party candidate.
