In a press address ANC Party deputy party leader Ayub Savula had declared that there were talks between Ann Waiguru and Musalia Mudavadi about the former being the running mate to Mudavadi.
However during an interview on citizen TV on Tuesday ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi, refuted the remarks made by his deputy but instead saying that the party has not decided on a running mate and that anybody who is willing to be his deputy is welcome to join him.
Mudavadi said that he has already reprimanded Ayub for making such” careless” remarks to the press. he said that those remarks were his personal remarks and not the party’s position.
Ayub Savula made these remarks when he visited Ann Waiguru who has being questioned by EACC detectives at integrity centre in Nairobi.
Waiguru has been in the news lately for all reasons raging from denying that she was in support of BBI and declaring that she might seek fresh mandate on a UDA’s ticket in the upcoming general elections.
Mudavadi who is a co-principal at the newly formed One Kenya Alliance has declared that this time he must be on the ballot paper. This is a move that has left the OKA movement in political jeopardy.
In what can only be declared as a rejection of a Mudavadi-Waiguru ticket, the former deputy prime minister declared that he and his party are looking for a person with the highest level of integrity and not a person who is a frequent visitor to the office of DCI and EACC on corruption allegations.
Whether the both of them will be running together or the ANC party will pick another running mate, the only sure thing is that they will have a challenge in 2022 if they don’t organise their affairs early enough.
