Mudavadi reveals ANC’s plan for 2017 General Election


Musalia Mudavadi

Amani National Congress (ANC) has outlined several key points they seek to focus on in preparation to the 2017 campaigns.

In a statement, Mudavadi said ANC will intensify membership recruitment and popularise itself across the country.

“I call upon the youth and women to claim their stake in ANC and volunteer in this exercise. I will be at the forefront of the exercise,” said Mudavadi.

“ANC is a broad based inclusive party that seeks to unite rather than divide Kenyans. We stand for the values enshrined in Chapter Six of our Constitution with focus on the dignity of every Kenyan.”

The party also outlined its commitment to foster devolution, peace, reconciliation and national integration while shunning political and ethnic divisions.

“We say no to politics of division and ethnicity. We champion inclusiveness,” said Mudavadi.

“Every Kenyan must feel they belong and are wanted.  We will champion the promotion of human rights to enhance democratic freedoms.”

The party also called for the strengthening of anti-corruption institutions in order to foster the fight against corruption.

“The status and capacities of the Office of the Auditor General and the EACC is critical in the war on corruption and the President should not assent to any bill that seeks to weaken anti-corruption institutions.”

Obama’s talk targetted Kenyans

Mudavadi also thanked Kenyans for the ecstatic welcome they accorded US President Barack Obama on his maiden visit to Kenya.

He said that Obama talked candidly, openly and frankly not about America but about Kenya and Kenyans, adding that his admonition was about ordinary Kenyan.

Mudavadi termed his visit to Britain as fruitful, saying he sought to introduce the party to both government officials and Kenyans there.

He added that he held meetings with Lord David on how to improve devolution in the country.

“As you know, I am the devolution architect in Kenya. It was therefore necessary to know how devolution has worked in Scotland from, so to speak, the horse’s own mouth in the name of Lord David Steel.”

He said he learnt a lot on how to reform the electoral system to make it better saying he will soon be meeting the IEBC to share his views.

“I also had the privilege to be hosted for a luncheon by the East African Association. The EAA is a membership of British investors in Kenya.”

“I should also not forget to mention that I attended two separate graduation of my sons Moses and Michael”

The new appeal is part of Mudavadi’s preparation for the 2017 elections, which he has vowed to run.

Mudavadi was a candidate in the 2013 presidential election, running under the Amani Coalition. The former Sabatia MP finished third in the race.
