Mudavadi Blames Uhuru For Choosing DP Ruto As His Running Mate, Sends Attacking Bullets At Ruto

Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has unleashed tough attacking bullets and direct the gun at Deputy President William Ruto for allegedly disrespecting the Head of State President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Speaking during an exclusive interview with KTN News anchor Sophy Wananu on Monday night, the former Prime minister faulted the second in command for allegedly betraying his Jubilee party leader by forming the new party (United Democratic Alliance) at the expense of destroying the ruling Jubilee party.

Mudavadi informed that DP Ruto was supposed to concretely stick to constitutional requirement that the presidency is a compact pact that can't be separated and therefore the president ought to choose his running mate with much keenness bearing in mind that betrayals might erupt in their political discourse.

"When one is choosing their running mate, they decide whether the chemistry will gel or not. The president might have keenly looked into such factors before choosing Deputy President William Ruto as his running mate" he said.

He also delivered a corded message to the top politicians eyeing to deputize him in 2022 presidential race by revealing that he will highly consider the voting blocs his running mate will bring on the table. He insisted that he will choose his running basing on the merit of political bigwig.

"When somebody is looking at the position of his Deputy, they try to look at it in the context of what the voting bloc holds. When the right time come, I will choose my running mate basing the merit of his/her political discourse and what will be brought on the table" he insisted.

At the same time, Deputy President William Ruto was on the receiving end as Mudavadi hatched direct attacks following the recent fallout with his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta. Mudavadi cited that the moment of extreme tension in the presidency and public discourse in the exchange of harsh words is quite unnecessary for the two top leaders.

"We are seeing a moment of extreme tension in the presidency and public discourse in the exchange of words which is unnecessary and poses an ugly picture for the two top leaders to start engaging in such scenes" he reiterated.
