Big Win For Raila As Musalia And Wetangula Meeting Backfires

Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi, and his FORD Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula have called off all their political meetings across the vast Western Kenya region. In a joint press statement at ANC headquarters, also the head offices of the Musalia Mudavadi foundation, the two leaders termed the move as one aimed at reducing the spread of Covid-19 infections in the country. That given the surging number of infections currently being witnessed in the country, they have called off all their scheduled political gathering in line with the ministry of health protocols.
This is even as they challenged all other political leaders holding political rallies at this point in time to shelve their plans and help the country properly deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. They noted that the country was increasingly coming under strain due to a surge in the number of new virus cases and that after broad consultations they had decided to call off all their planned meetings. The two have been crisscrossing the vast Western Kenya region to solidify their base even as political realignments slowly take shape ahead of the 2022 plebiscite.

The rallies were meant to counter the political meetings by Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, and Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya. With the two taking development tours across all western region counties, together with meetings with Luhya council of elders. The meetings were met with intense public outcry given the number of huge crowds that they met, devoid of social distancing protocols and basic infection prevention guides. And whereas the shelving of the said meetings by Musalia and Wetangula are welcome, some have seen it as a little too late in the day when the virus was on an over drive gear.
