ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi has challenged Jubilee Party to put public any deals the DP and his team keep on alluding to regarding 2022 succession politics. Mudavadi says such a deal can only exist if Kenyans know about it and as thing stands, nobody knows such a deal was ever made so it should not hold anybody ransom, including President Uhuru Kenyatta.
”Nobody can be held at a ransom by some purported deal on 2022 elections.Kenyans are not privy to any information about a deal struck between the President and his deputy in Jubilee Party over a planned succession of the President,” Mudavadi said.
The ANC leader questioned where such a deal leaves other Kenyans interested in the presidency, as it would seem that the presidency is only preserve of a few people.
””What does such a deal leave those of us and others interested in the Presidency if at all it was hatched?” Mudavadi asked. ”There is no constitutional provision of an automatic ticket to Presidency.
The ANC leader was speaking to the press in Kisumu where he had attended a church service at the Kisumu Christ Is The Answer Ministries.
