Lugari Member of Parliament, Ayub Savula on Monday, January 24, divulged the details of a document that was signed by Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Raila Odinga (ODM), Gideon Moi (KANU) and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya) during a meeting convened at State House by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The MP stated that he was privy to what happened during the meeting because he was the Deputy Party leader of ANC at the time and Mudavadi kept him appraised.
Savula explained that Uhuru asked Mudavadi, Kalonzo, Raila, Moi and Wetangula to sign a document agreeing to field only one presidential candidate.
According to him, the leaders penned their signatures and the president kept the original and only copy of the document.Lugari MP and Amani National Congress Party member, Ayub SavulaFile
"Musalia has appended his signature to a document and that document no one has a copy, it's only the president who has the original document.
"Mudavadi used to brief me on a daily basis about those meetings as his deputy. They signed the document that they would agree to field a single presidential candidate, including ODM," he asserted.
Further, Savula revealed that after a few days, he met with Raila and Defense Cabinet Secretary (CS) Eugene Wamalwa in Karen and they asked the former Prime Minister to convince Uhuru to allow him to name Musalia as a running mate.
As as a compromise, he would give Mt. Kenya 50 per cent of the cabinet slots for missing out on the Deputy President slot.
Later, Savula met Mudavadi and he briefed him on what he had discussed with Raila. The Lugari MP alleged he was summoned by Musalia the following day and he asked him to go slow on the alliance with the former Prime Minister.
On Sunday, January 23, in a rather surprising move, Mudavadi pledged to work with Wetangula and Deputy President William Ruto during a meeting that was convened at Bomas of Kenya.
The ANC leader, who was launching his presidential bid, noted that Kenya is broke because of President Kenyatta's insatiable appetite for loans, corrupt officials and the inaction on the part of government agencies.
Mudavadi also stated that the cost of living was at an all-time high and castigated Kenyatta for plotting his succession instead of addressing the needs of the ordinary Kenyans.
"They don't pay taxes. They are the biggest burden Kenyans have to carry. We must reject their political projects and their sinister schemes in this year's elections.
"I refuse to board. I will not be lying to Kenyans. I will not board a train of lies Where are the handshake partners? Why should we line up next to the president to beg for development," he remarked.ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi and Deputy President William Ruto exchange pleasantries during the ANC National Delegates ConferenceDPPS
