This follows after his fans, particularly those are in Facebook, put to task to explain why he had started practising double standards when it comes to donating money to churches. The netizens were concerned with why Mudavadi had practised what his political rival deputy president Dr William Ruto had been doing, yet he (Musalia Mudavadi) had been criticizing the country's second in command when he does the same.
The castigations against Mudavadi on Facebook began when he revealed that he attended a church service at Chebuene area in Imenti North constituency, Meru county. According to him, he participated in empowerment activities including a funds drive aimed at purchasing a bus for the church. In the post, he expressed gratitude to the locals for welcoming him warmly to the region for a political tour.
"I joined the faithful of Chabuene Methodist Church in North Imenti constituency, Meru County for Sunday mass. I took part in a Thanksgiving and funds drive for the church's development projects including buying a bus. I thank the people of Meru for the warm welcome during my two-day visit of the county. Together we take our country forward," read Mudavadi's post.
However, his message seemed to have irked majority of Kenyans who took to the comment section to throw jibes at him. They bashed him and his entire opposition colleagues for mimicking Dr Ruto by donating cash to churches yet they were initially against the move. They opined that Mudavadi was simply wooing the church to support his 2022 presidential bid. Here are the reactions:
