Musalia becomes the first candidate to be endorsed as the flag bearer by his party for others have only stated their wish but not given the mandate.According to the party’s constitution, the party leader is mandated to lead his party in preparation for elections with the chance to find and determine who the party wants or will accept to form a coalition with.
He(Mudavadi) had earlier hinted that he will be in the ballot seeking for supremacy and urged his former coalition principal Raila Odinga with his team to back his bid.In 2013, Musalia was blackmailed by Jubilee before joining CORD and in 2017 being in NASA they supported Raila Odinga who lost to Jubilee.
Musalia speaking to a local radio station (Sulwe FM) said that he can oy work with Ruto on condition that he is for presidency and Ruto as deputy. Kimilili mp Didmus Barasa, a close confidant of the dp, gave the possibilities of the two working together with Ruto being tipped to be ahead of Musalia for he is already in government and will look up to accomplishing their pending agendas.
The ANC endorsement is expected to shade light to other parties especially Ford Kenya that is being led by Moses Wetangula.The Bungoma senator also publicly declared that he wants to be president and will start by uniting Mulembe nation where he and his brother (Musalia) will agree on how to face the elections. Wetangula’s boat was on the verge of sinking as an attempted coup in the parties leadership failed.
It is now official that Mudavadi will face Ruto in 2022 if either there will be no other candidates or present.He said that if they are not supported, then they will be found in statehouse. The endorsement has opened doors for the former vice president to find coalitions with the right path that will lead them to statehouse.
