The Senator dismissed the criticism directed to ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula following their announcement on Sunday at the Bomas of Kenya that they will be working with Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking with TV 47 on Monday, Malala stated that the constitution allows freedom of association, and as a party, they have a right to engage and negotiate with any leader in the political space ahead of the elections.
He went on to lament that the DP has been criminalized alongside any leader who associates with him.
"I am very much disturbed by the manner in which certain people in this country want to criminalize associating with the DP. He is a Kenyan citizen and therefore it is not a crime to associate with him. Nobody will choose friends for us.
Why did they fail to criminalize the governors who met Raila? People should start minding their own business. We support Mudavadi and we will market his association with Ruto," said the vocal Senator.
