Mudavadi downplays Jubilee’s big crowds in home turf
National Super Alliance (NASA ) Co-principal Musalia Mudavadi has downplayed efforts by the ruling Jubilee Party to make inroads in his home turf of Western Kenya.
And as the political battle intensifies with only 49 days left before the General Election, Mudavadi said the large crowds witnessed in Jubilee rallies in western Kenya do not translate to votes.
In an exclusive interview with Citizen Digital, Mudavadi disclosed that NASA team is planning to pitch camp in the vote-rich region this week to drum up support for their presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
“I know that Jubilee has been campaigning for some days now in the region but I want to assure our supporters that the region remains under NASA and will vote as a block,” said Mudavadi, who is poised to be the Chief Minister if NASA upsets Jubilee Party in August.
Mudavadi, who is also the head of the NASA presidential campaign, stated that the opposition brigade is also planning to make inroads in Jubilee strongholds especially in Central region.
The Amani National Congress party leader faulted the State for allegedly using public resources to campaign for the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Why are they doing this now, where were they? They are using public resources to bribe Kenyans and this should be condemned,” said Mr Mudavadi.
Busia, Bungoma and Kakamega are some of the counties Jubilee traversed in their campaigns several days ago as they target to get a share of the four million votes in the region.
