Mudavadi revealed an alleged behind-the-scenes scheme to shortchange him in OKA as part of a larger political game plan to have the nascent coalition join forces with Raila near the end of the campaign ahead of the August 9 general election.
Mudavadi accused his co-principals in OKA of a deliberate attempt to sabotage and weaken him within the coalition in his first exclusive interview, following his surprise decision to join forces with Deputy President William Ruto."There was a widespread belief that OKA would be coerced into cooperating with one of the political factions – Azimio. But all I can say is that I stood firm and made my decision," Mudavadi said.
He claimed that top State officials were attempting to influence the succession race in a particular direction.
"Clearly, there are some people who would try to influence the polls in order to prevent a free and fair election.Some people are going to great lengths to shape the succession," he added.
