Musalia Mudavadi, leader of the Amani National Congress party, responded to President Uhuru’s recent remarks about his decision to join Deputy President Ruto’s coalition.
Yesterday, President Kenyatta is said to have criticized Mudavadi’s decision to team up with the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader, terming it “misguided and disappointing”.
The Head of State spoke at State House during a meeting with leaders from Mudavadi’s western region.
But responding to Uhuru on Wednesday, Mudavadi said Kenyans are more disappointed in the President due to current economic hardships.
“Mr President, you have a right to be disappointed with me. But, I want to tell you: Kenyans are even more disappointed in you. They are hungry, they are tired. Let’s not lie to each other,” Mudavadi said during his tour of Nakuru County with Ruto.
While accusing Uhuru of managing his succession, Mudavadi maintained that he won’t allow the President to choose ‘partners’ for him.
Mudavadi was categorical that he would not partner with Raila Odinga’s Azimio La Umoja movement backed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
