In Summary

  • According to Lusaka, it is ironic that those calling for unity did not see it fit to do so when Musalia Mudavadi ran for president in 2013.
  • Elsewhere, Jubilee MPs led by John Waluke (Sirisia) also criticised calls for Luhya unity saying they are dishonest.
  • Mr. Waluke said they are in the Government to stay and they cannot abandon it for a nondescript formation.

Speaker of the Senate Ken Lusaka has dismissed calls for “Luhya unity” by politicians from Western Kenya ahead of the 2022 elections terming the move as selfish and alienating.

According to him, it is ironic that those calling for unity did not see it fit to do so when Musalia Mudavadi ran for president in 2013.

“They should join us. We join them and go where? We can’t form a Mulembe party or one confined to Western Kenya and say we are going somewhere. We should include other parties,” he said during an interview on Citizen Extra.

“Luhya unity seems to be about an individual. If I am the leader it is Luhya unity, if it is someone else then it is not Luhya unity,” he added.

Elsewhere, Jubilee MPs led by John Waluke (Sirisia) also criticised calls for Luhya unity saying they are dishonest.

Mr. Waluke said they are in the Government to stay and they cannot abandon it for a nondescript formation.

“Other communities in Western Kenya feel left out. If Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula are drowning, they should not tag us along,” Mt Elgon MP Fred Kapondi added.
