Speaking in an exclusive interview with CORO FM, Mudavadi said political leaders should instead focus on good governance which will in turn provide a platform for the youth as well as pother Kenyans to do business.

In a deliberate jibe at Deputy President William Ruto’s hustler narrative, Mudavadi said, Kenyan youths are an educated lot and should not be hoodwinked with wheelbarrows.

“We should not glorify poverty. We should fight against poverty,” He said.

Mudavadi said Kenya needs a somber person in 2022, one with the ability to resuscitate the economy saying he is ready to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta once his term ends.

He now wants ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga to endorse him for Presidency in 2022 as a sign of goodwill, having supported him on his two previous attempts.

“Mimi nimeunga wengine mkono kwenye harakati zao za kutaka kuwa rais. Kwenye msukumo wa 2022 mimi sitaunga mtu mkono tena. Niko tayari kuzunguka Kenya nzima kuwaomba wakenya kura za kiti cha Urais.” (I have supported others in their ambitions to be president. In the 2022 contest I will not support anyone else. I am ready to traverse the Country to mobilize support for my bid.)

Mudavadi says he forgo his bid to be President in 2017 to support Raila after the latter convinced them it would be his last attempt.

Either the ANC party leader says Kenyans must be wary of divisive politics and called on those seeking elective posts to do so with decorum and respect for their competitors.
