Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has asked Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangu’la to stop branding him “Jubilee project”, saying the tag is malicious detrimental to his presidential bid.
Addressing his supporters during a rally at Nyang’ori in Vihiga on Saturday, the former Deputy Prime Minister said Wetang’ula is being used by his political rivals in the Opposition, Cord, to sabotage his political support.
“Let me sound a warning to my brother Moses Wetang’ula for branding me a Jubilee project. I’m ANC party leader and I have no any relation with the Jubilee. Let him not be used by Cord to spoil my support in the country by calling me fake names,” said Mudavadi.
“ANC has no any affiliation with either Jubilee or whatever other party they say. I have no relation with (President) Uhuru Kenyatta, I only relate with him by virtue of being a Kenyan,” he added.
Further, Mudavadi said the Bungoma senator “is suffering from inferiority complex”. He reminded his supporters that he is the only person who reached to the presidential ballot from the Western region after Wetang’ula dropped his bid in support of Cord leader Raila Odinga, while Bifwoli Wakoli and Cyrus Jirongo kept off the 2013 General Election.
“Let some leaders from this region not confuse you that they are competing with me to be president. I am not in their party or coalition. Unlike them, I am following no one, I am independent. My fate is in Kenyan hands,” he said.
“I know I can do it. So let’s join hands, walk together, and run as a team. Let’s restore our pride,” added Mudavadi as he urged the Luhya community to unite.
