Speaking in Meru, the former Vice President stated that if the ODM party and its leaders maintained their opposition side, the government would always been kept on check and the increased fuel prices would not have been witnessed.
"To foster democracy, we must have a government and a opposition that will hold that administration in to account. If the opposition is working the way it id supposed to work, then the fuel prices would be affordable. A crippled opposition is a dangerous institution in our country," said Mudavadi.
His sentiments comes a day after Raila through his Twitter account urged the government to re-look on the fuel prices and lower them immediately, remarks that elicited mixed reactions online, a number of netizens firing back that he joined the government and forgot about putting it on its toes.
Mudavadi urged the Meru leaders and other delegates to support his presidential bid assuring them that their needs will be sorted.
