Vice President William Ruto sent an invitation to Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford-Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula.
Speaking on Wednesday, December 15, during a visit to the West, the DP and his brigade claimed that the two leaders had a better chance of cooperating with him.
He also claimed that Mudavadi had undergone extensive training with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s team, but had not received any results.
“I ask you if Musalia Mudavadi and Wetangula are working with him (Raila) or joining the Hustler movement.
“They took Musalia for an interview and did not even call to tell him the results,” Ruto told the cheering crowd.
Ruto’s remarks were echoed by his allies including Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa and Kakamega candidate Boni Khalwale.
Khalwale argued that Raila’s allegiance involved a monopoly system where for any political event in the western region, leaders in the region must consult with the former prime minister who will contact the president before the series begins.
Meanwhile, Barasa urged the two, Mudavadi and Wetangula, to join Team Ruto.
Their request comes just one week after the two leaders flew to a national unity resolution conference at Kasarani Stadium on Friday, December 10, despite receiving invitation cards.
