Mudavadi: This is how Uhuru "duped me in 2013"

"My wife prepared tea, maandazi and samosas which they feasted on..."

Addressing a mammoth crowd in his home turf, Musalia Mudavadi who was at the centre of controversy decrying being duped, narrated a dramatic move by President Uhuru and Ruto to lure him.

On Saturday, Mr Mudavadi claimed that Mr Kenyatta and Mr Ruto visited his home in a black Range Rover and without an appointment.

“Ruto was driving the car and Uhuru was occupying the co-driver’s seat. (Tourism Minister) Najib Balala and (Kwale gubernatorial aspirant) Chirau Mwakwere were seated at the back,” Mudavadi claimed.

He continued: “I welcomed them all because we love visitors. We discussed and agreed on everything, signed and shook hands. My wife then prepared tea, maandazi and samosas which they feasted on. Two weeks later they jumped the gun and even started referring to me as madimoni (the devil). Now I want to tell them that I am the real devil in Nasa.”

Mr Mudavadi has in the past consistently claimed that there was a signed pre-election agreement between the three leaders which was to enable him become Jubilee’s presidential candidate in 2013.

President Kenyatta has also acknowledged the same although he would later claimed that he was misled by the “devil” to sign the deal.

Four years down the line, Mr Mudavadi is now backing NASA’s Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka, who will face off with Jubilee Party’s pairing of President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto on August 8.

Mr Mudavadi made a stab at the presidency in 2013 but failed as President Uhuru was declared the winner, with him emerging a third winner.

Mr Mudavadi is behind the opposition’s coalition NASA, which has presented Raila as the presidential candidate and Mr Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka as the running mate.

Mr Mudavadi has been promised the chief prime minister position should the NASA team emerge the winner in the August polls.
