Raila Accused Of Planning To Frustrate Mudavadi Ahead Of August Polls

Senator Johnson Sakaja of Nairobi has accused ODM leader Raila Odinga of funding the newly formed DAP- K party in order to stymie Musalia Mudavadi' s presidential ambitions.

Without naming names, the Jubilee legislator said that the previous prime minister funded Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi and his faction to sow dissension in Mudavadi' s party in an interview with the Star on Friday, January 28.

" It is obvious now. Some people were being paid to create discord in ANC, we have evidence. They are trying to play down the influence of Musalia Mudavadi, " Sakaja said.

While describing the DAP- K as an ODM in blue jacket, Sakaja, who is running for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat in the August 9 elections, also claimed that Raila paid DAP- K chairman Wafula Wamunyinyi to foment trouble in FORD Kenya while he was still a member.

" DAP- K is nothing more than an ODM dressed up in a blue jacket. They are funding it, and there is where the utapeli is. " If you look at the chairman, Wafula Wamunyinyi, you can see that he was obviously hired by Raila to cause difficulties in Ford Kenya against his coalition partner NASA, " he claimed.

This comes as the majority of the Amani National Congress party has abandoned Mudavadi, with DAP- K and Azimio benefiting the most from the defections.

On Thursday, January 27, Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala made a stunning claim that President Uhuru Kenyatta' s handshake partner has been bribing ANC Members of Parliament to abandon Mudavadi' s party using government employees.

During a joint rally in Nakuru with Deputy President William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi, and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang' ula, Malala declared, " The government has been calling ANC MPs encouraging them to leave the party by giving them money. "

In the last 30 days, more than six parliamentarians, including Lurambi MP Titus Khamala, have abandoned Musalia Mudavadi.
