This is after one of the top politicians in the country was in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s backyard seeking their support in his bid to occupy State House in 2022.
ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi is now locked in a do-or-die battle with Ruto and Raila to control Uhuru’s backyard as he, Uhuru, is set to leave office next year.
Mudavadi during his visit said he plans to hold more talks with leaders from the region as he revealed he has been told what to do to increase his chances of winning some of the voters to his camp.
Mudavadi who has declared his interest to be in the presidential race said he wants to work with leaders who can unite Kenyans and to move Kenya forward.
“We want to develop a direction. They have given us advice and told me what I could do to improve my ratings in Mt Kenya. We must understand that there are issues that can unite us and we are focused on positive politics and engagement,” said Mudavadi.
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja echoed ANC party leader’s remark as he said with the Mt Kenya voting bloc attracting more political interest, it was important for the region to work with leaders who want to bring change instead of those who are focused on their own selfish political interest.
“This Mt Kenya region is an extremely important region as we move to the Elections. Our presidential candidate is reaching out to talk about issues and our country needs a break from politics of insults and personalization,” said Sakaja.
