Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has hinted he is ready for a political partnership with Baringo Senator Gideon Moi ahead of the 2022 presidential contest.
Mr Mudavadi who spoke during a fundraiser in aid of traders in Kakamega said he has had a long-standing relationship with the Senator Moi.
“My relationship with Gideon and his family is a close one. I went to school with Gideon and we are still very close and good friends,” said Mr Mudavadi.
The ANC leader warned against plunder of public resources and urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a commission of inquiry to investigate those behind scandals in the maize and sugar sectors as well as the leasing of medical equipment given to county governments.
“The handshake between President Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is a good thing but some people in government are taking advantage of the gesture to plunder public resources” said Mr Mudavadi.
Sabatia MP Alfred Agoi and his Lurambi counterpart Bishop Titus Khamala asked Mr Mudavadi and Senator Moi to move with speed to realize their political partnership if they are to form the next government in 2022.
Tiaty MP William Kamket said the time has come for the former Nyayo politicians to join hands and work together to clinch the presidency.
He said an alliance between Mr Mudavadi and Senator Moi will usher in new leadership in 2022.
Mr Kamket revisited the issue of politicians making huge donations in churches across the country, saying Kenyans need to question the source of their money.
Siaya Senator James Orengo, his Homabay counterpart Moses Kajwang and several MPs were also in attendance.
