Amani National Congress leaders Musalia Mudavadi on Sunday accused Jubilee Party of handcuffing President Uhuru Kenyatta so he cannot deliver.
Musalia who spoke in Kitengela town, Kajiado County, said there is no opposition in Kenya to put road-blocks or put checks and balances on Uhuru, but that his party members are bringing him down.
“The mist of corruption has refused to move, and it has reached a point where we need the whole country to pray for this cloud to go away,” said Mudavadi.
The ANC leader said Kenyatta brought about the Kieleweke and Tangatanga groupings in Jubilee and are not letting him sleep, or perform his duties as head of state.
“Every time the two functions within Jubilee are fighting, Kenyatta is not with peace with himself. So in other words what has handcuffed him is his own party members who do not want him to move on,” said the ANC leader.
Mudavadi said every time corruption is unearthed those in Kieleweke and Tangatanga are the ones that shout the loudest saying their communities are being targeted.
He told the churches in the country to pray hard for change so that leadership can move on to other leaders who will remove those handcuffs from Kenyatta.
Mudavadi was reacting to claims made by Kajiado East MP Peris Tobiko, who was also present in the fundraiser. Tobiko said the differences in Jubilee is slowing the work of the President.
Tobiko said Tangatanga followers, that include the local governor in Kajiado have brought misery to the people on claims the county money have not been felt by voters.
“This is a very unfortunate situation because the only projects that are felt are those done by constituency development fund through the MPs. We do not understand what the governor in this county does with an Sh9 billion budget every year,” lamented Tobiko.
She said President Kenyatta gave directive for Kitengela people to be given water from Nairobi and the work of the county government was to distribute the commodity but they have failed.
“This is a very sad situation that the county cannot even afford to distribute the water. It is sad, and I am not saying this because of the 2022 general elections. What I am urging the people of Kajiado to do is to take their own marking scheme on their leaders so that when 2022 elections come, you will know who to send home,” said Tobiko.
At the national level, Tobiko said the President has given elected leaders a road map that the rest of Kenya is united.
“There is only one person who has refused to join other Kenyans by going to the bushes to cry and claiming his security is threatened. One sheep should come back and join others in moving this country ahead,” said the MP.
Kajiado West MP Samuel Arama, who was also present told Mudavadi to join hands with Interior CS Fred Matiang’i so they can form a government together in 2022.
Arama, who is a resident of Kitengela, said he is supporting Matiang’i because he believes he can deliver as a President of this country.
