Musalia Mudavadi

Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavdi has come out to blast his Orange Democratic Movement counterpart Raila Odinga for allegedly using school buses to ferry supporters to political parties.

Mudavadi’s statement comes a day after Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro claimed that Raila had hired several school buses from Luo Nyanza region to ferry supporters from Nyanza to his Nyeri rallies.

Speaking to the press on Sunday, Mudavdi said that the country needs free and fair elections and no state institution should be used by the politicians to influence the elections.

“We have seen double standards in this country. Professor Magoha sai school buses should not be used for private functions, have you forgotten that?

“Why are school buses being used to ferry people for political buses. So what happens if they get involved in an accident, will the parent of that institution buy another bus? Who will be held responsible?” Mudavadi asked.

Speaking to a group of reporters on Saturday, Nyoro claimed that youths how have been attending Raila’s rallies during his tour in Nyeri are those from his political backyard.

He accused the ODM boss of ferrying people from Luo Nyanza to attend his rallies so that he could sell a narrative that he has managed to climb the mountain.

Nyoro claimed that while was travelling from his home to Nairobi on Saturday, he saw a lot of school buses carrying youths from Nyanza to Raila’s Nyeri rallies.

“When I was travelling to Nairobi, I met like a hundred school buses. Some of those buses included that of Kisumu High, Nyalenda High School, Kondele Boys, Homa/Bay Girls and Siaya High School.

“The number of buses that were heading towards Mt Kenya region even made me wonder if there was drama festival in the region. When I asked, I was told that there was an ‘Azimio la Kurusha Mawe’ in Nyeri,” Nyoro claimed.
