Mudavadi blasts Uhuru, Raila for ‘juvenile’ spat at Ntimama funeral
Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has condemned the public spat between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Cord leader Raila Odinga at the funeral of William ole Ntimama on Wednesday.
In a strongly worded statement, sent to newsrooms on Thursday, the former Vice President said the exchange of words between the two leaders showed how decadence has become an attribute of Kenyan leaders.
“Any leader must exercise restraint. There was no need for the juvenile exchange at such a solemn occasion. I was both ashamed and embarrassed that these are people Kenyans vote for,” said Mr Mudavadi.
While speaking to the press on the sidelines of the burial, Mr Musalia had also criticized President Kenyatta’s government.
“There is no other reason why President Uhuru Kenyatta would be hesitant to sign into law bills that have such immense impact to a credible election in 2017 other than acting to sabotage the process in favour of a stillborn Jubilee. He is scared people will vote with their feet the moment the part hoping window become law,” said Mudavadi.
