Raila has been largely silent on whether or not he will be in the 2022 presidential race, with Mudavadi, a former ally of his and a member of his NASA alliance, saying that he indeed is working towards vying.
Mudavadi, who has also declared his interest in the same seat, says that Raila has sought the help of more powerful forces to help him upon exhausting his political strength.
For him, Raila, after firing the final bullet in his gun in the 2017 elections, has gone to borrow another gun, in an apparent reference to the former Prime Minister's dalliance with President Uhuru Kenyatta, which has seen some allies of the president term Raila the Head of State's preferred successor.
"Raila fired his final bullet in 2017 and we were thinking that he will support one of us as a result. However, we now see him going to borrow somebody else's gun to fire again," he said during a campaign rally in Matungu on Wednesday.
He spoke in the company of KANU party leader Gideon Moi, Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya) and Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper with whom they are working on a 2022 alliance.
All the leaders except Moi have been pressuring Raila to support them for the presidency as payment for the support they have given him in previous elections, including 2017.
Wetangula said that the three of them have collectively invested over 30 years in Raila, urging him to consider paying back by keeping off the 2022 contest.
"The three of us have invested 30 years in Raila, its now his time to pay back," he said.
Moi drummed up support for their alliance, terming it a union based on a purpose and reason.
