Finally, after months of dilly-dallying and wearing a hat of escapism ANC party leader and NASA Co-Principal Musalia Mudavadi has come clean on why he gave the controversial Swearing in of Raila Odinga as People’s President a wide berth.
In his initial explanations when the kitchen became hot, he claimed they were told by Raila Odinga that they should switch off their phones and that he would call them with a Nigerian Number. ‘They’ here implies Mudavadi, Ford-K’s Moses Wetangula and Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka.
Probably the burden of lying to millions of NASA supporters has weighed him down and while hosted on Citizen TV yesterday, admitted he skipped the event that went down at Uhuru Park because he was against it.
“I did not want the swearing in at Uhuru Park to happen. I kept emphasizing ‘tunaweka break’ (we are putting it on hold),” said Mudavadi.
The ANC party leader argued before the swearing-in, they had discussed among the co-principals, the advantages and disadvantages of taking a parallel oath to that of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“We as NASA co-principals discussed the merits and demerits of a parallel oath. My position then and now was that we could not have a former PM and two former Vice Presidents engage in a process that is unconstitutional,” explained Mudavadi. “That is the reason I did not go to Uhuru Park,” he added.
