Members of the Amani National Congress (ANC) party want the Kanu, Wiper and Ford Kenya parties to support Musalia Mudavadi for Presidency.
According to the ANC Mt Kenya leadership chapter, the three leaders; Gideon Moi, Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula should back down to support Mudavadi who they said is the best suited leader to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Led by ANC Mt Kenya region Coordinator Simon Gikuru and Muranga branch chairperson Peter Wambuku (Former Maragua MP) they said Mudavadi due to his education background will revive the dwindling economy of the country and will be able to fight corruption as well as ensuring continuity in projects and agendas initiated by President Kenyatta.
“Mudavadi is the best bet to take on other Presidential contenders, while we thank the party leaders for coming together, we appeal to them to support our party leader since he will be able to tackle corruption as well as having a plan to settle the huge debts that the country is facing,” Gikuru added.
The leaders explained how Mudavadi is the most experienced politician having served as the Minister for Finance, Minister for Local Government and the Vice President.
They rekindled memories of how Mudavadi was able to turn around economy during Moi era when the country had huge financial debts and how he re- negotiated with the lending partners and likened today’s situation where the economy is performing dismally due to Covid-19 and the huge debts for development projects.
