The statement added: “These are blatant lies! No such thing exists. The two are not in TNA and therefore are not qualified to speak for Uhuru. They should stop pretending they can (speak on behalf of Uhuru).”
He said the two MPs, who have been working with Mudavadi, had made a choice to support UDF.
“They must stop running with the hare and hunting with the dogs. They made their choice to be in UDF,” Buku said.
Mudavadi said he is ready to work with any of the members of the G7 Alliance, as long as they shared the same ideas.
“I have always said that I am ready to work with anyone in the alliance. The fact that you have told me to work with Uhuru is a clear indication you respect me. I will follow your wishes. Uhuru is my brother. I am sure we can lead the next government after President Kibaki retires,” he said.
Kioni was the first to call Mudavadi’s bluff, saying there is no way they can defeat Prime Minister Raila Odinga if they do not form an alliance.
Others accompanying the DPM were MPs Muriithi, Manyala Keya, Justus Kizito, and George Nyamweya.
On Thursday, Kioni said it was through unity that the people of the region would not be consigned to the opposition politics. He claimed that Prime Minister Raila Odinga had devised a trick to divide his opponents along tribal lines to force a run-off between him and Uhuru.
“When Uhuru is pitted against Raila in the run-off, it would be a repeat of 2007 elections. The rest of the country will unite against the Mt Kenya people,” said Kioni.
He added: “I can assure you that no single party will win the first round of the elections unless they unite. I’m sure that if you team up with Uhuru then there would be no second round and you two would lead.”
Kizito took the cue from Kioni and assured those who had attended the rally that their wishes would be considered.
