Speaking during a church service at Friends Church (Quakes) Maringo in Nairobi, the Senator hinted at supporting Mudavadi’s Presidential ambitions once President Uhuru Kenyatta completes his term.
“As of now I still have a contract with President Uhuru Kenyatta, which lasts up until 2022. I cannot betray Uhuru Kenyatta because I am a man of principles, and a man of my word, but the contract will eventually end and after that, I am a 100% fully behind Musalia Mudavadi, and that is the way forward,” said the Senator.
He stated that there comes a time when a new generation has to make a decision, and that the most important thing was unity of the country.
The Senator also showered Mudavadi with praise for adopting a firm stand, noting that the country needs such leaders.
“A decision has to be made, if you see me here together with MP George Aladwa and Stanley Livondo all representing different political parties rallying behind Musalia Mudavadi, we are definitely going to shock this nation by our unity. Our unity will be our marching anthem.
“‘If you vote in an administration that will not focus on economic recovery, then you will be in for a rude shock. Leaders should start talking about how the economy can recover,” added Sakaja.
Mudavadi who ran for presidency in 2013 but lost has expressed his desire to occupy the top office in 2022. He maintained that the choices Kenyans will make in 2022, will have a big impact on their future.
