The OKA principal, who was presented as the ANC's presidential candidate, entered the podium to applause and delivered a forceful message criticizing the current government, highlighting worries about the country's spiraling public debt, widespread corruption, and increased incidents of insecurity.
"Kenya filed for bankruptcy. Kenya's national debt is escalating rapidly. Mudavadi claimed on Sunday that the country is on the verge of being auctioned off to international lenders; the country as a whole is in debt; and essential infrastructure has been mortgaged.
"Our national debt has deteriorated into a security problem; we must protect our country from imminent harm."
According to Mudavadi, Kenya is currently sitting on a ticking time bomb whose safe time has been expedited by unemployment and continual borrowing, which finances corruption.
"The country is being devoured by public-private partnerships; the private businesses are government officials and their families.
The ANC leader stated that "these cartels do not even pay their taxes."
However, the substance of Mudavadi's Sunday declaration was his attack on Raila Odinga, who was in Nakuru on Sunday spreading the word about his "Azimio la Umoja" clarion cry.
While indicating that the ANC will now seek political coalitions with other like-minded parties, Mudavadi ruled out collaboration with former combatants.
"Let me put it this way: we do not know who will accompany us, but we do know who will not, and it will not be somebody you cannot trust," Mudavadi explained.
"When it comes to partnerships, azimio is out of the question, since azimio is about individual self-preservation, wamepoteza frequency na network," Musalia added.
