Khwisero MP Aseka warns Luhya politicians opposing Mudavadi's 2022 presidency

Khwisero MP Christopher Wangaya Aseka has warned that Luhya politicians who are opposed to ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi's bid for the Presidency would be rejected by the voters.

Aseka said the policians supporting Mudavadi's opponents would be rendered politically irrelevant come next year.

He predicted that the ground would also be too hostile to them and that even those vying for political seats would have nowhere to campaign.

He said Luhyas were tired of supporting other communities and that they would use their massive numbers "to send a critical message in next year's elections".

He said anybody undermining Luhyas and Mudavadi's bid should brave for "shock of their lives".

"Politicians from the Luhya Community and Western region as a whole who are busy undermining Mudavadi now will receive baptism of fire next year," Aseka said.

"My honest advice to them is to go slow, seek their votes without campaigning for Mudavadi's opponents, or swallow their pride and publicly proclaim their support for our presidential candidate," he added.

Speaking in his constituency when he rallied the residents to register as voters, the lawmaker pointed out that the outcome of the Matungu and Kabuchai by-elections on March 4 would be replicated across the Western region on August 9.

He said Luhyas do not like to openly whip up tribal emotions and cause frictions but would speak at the ballot.

"Our community is largely peaceful. We never fight amongst ourselves. We know what we want and we shall claim it next year," he said.

Aseka vowed to ensure he delivers all the seats and votes in his constituency to ANC and Mudavadi.

He urged the community to let the former Deputy Prime Minister galvanise for support in other parts of the country while they ensure they are enlisted as voters.
