Musalia Mudavadi fits to be called child of KANU together with the likes of President Uhuru and William Ruto since it is KANU which introduced them to politics
This was all thanks to the efforts by ex President Daniel Moi who only gave them a chance. For Musalia Mudavadi, he was just a 29 year old man before his father, Mudamba Mudavadi died in 1989 while he was still the MP for Sabatia.
Many political heavyweights from Western Kenya were yearning for this seat at a time where KANU was the only party around. However since Mudavadi's father was a close ally of Moi, Moi ensured that his youthful son inherited this seat since giving him the KANU ticket was enough.
This all happened after Moi invited Mudavadi for a chat in Statehouse, Nairobi. In the meeting, President Moi assured Mudavadi that he was the right man for the Sabatia seat and that he will give him full support.
It is here whereby President Moi bought for Mudavadi a Peugeot which had KZS 841 number as an indication that Moi was serious with young Mudavadi joining politics
