Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi on Saturday led delegates allied to ANC at Kiawambeu Primary School in Kiharu, Murang'a county for the homecoming ceremony of the youthful newly appointed Secretary General Hon Simon Kamau Gikuru.
Mudavadi hyped praises and accolades at Mr Gikuru for his endless dedication, hardwork and commitment to serve the interest of ANC party and entire nation. He informed that despite Gikuru coming from a poorly painted background, his leadership spirit and desire to lead wouldn't go unrecognized. "We didn't look at him basing on the his poor background, we looked at the leadership spirit in him, urge to lead, commitment and spirited dedication to serve the interests of the party and entire nation" ANC party boss said.
He also warned other leaders from pitting a political ground that would groom tribal and community conflicts at the height of advancing their respective political interests. He stated that he comes from Luhya land (Vihiga County) and that doesn't peg him to the notion of spewing hate to other non-luhya tribes.
With few days remaining for One Kenya Alliance (OKA) partners (Mudavadi, Kalonzo, Wetangula and Gideon Moi) to announce their candidate who will fly OKA flag in the next presidential race, ANC party leader has already declared himself and ascertained to the ongoing doubts that he will be in ballot come rain come sunshine.
"I want you to hear from the horse's mouth that I will be in the ballot in next year's presidential race and I besiege you to walk with me this journey to the end" he affirmed.
This statement rolls out that Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, KANU chairman Gideon Moi who was recently endorsed by KANU delegates to push the party's presidential ambition and Ford Kenya party boss Moses Wetangula have all been thrown out from flying OKA's flag in next year's race. It is perceived as a well served raw betrayal to other OKA chiefs who were expecting to announce their candidate in few weeks time.
