Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe has asked Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi to repackage himself for national politics.

Wangwe while addressing at Eregi Grounds in a burial service, asked ANC leader to repackage himself differently to take another stab at the Presidency.

He pointed out that it would not be easy to make it without making friends with like-minded leaders and asked him to work with Governor Oparanya so that one of them can remain standing for the 2022 race.

He said just like in 2013 he was again ready to support him for the top seat if he heeded the advice and changed his way of doing things.

“I am already in Government and for me to move to your camp you have to convince me that you are better than this,” said Wangwe.

On his part Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali asked Central Kenya leaders to apologise for ‘short-changing’ Mudavadi in 2013, even after reaching such an agreement at Grand Regency Hotel.

“We were at Grand regency signing an agreement over this matter but it still disturbs us that the running mate you gave our son also never voted for him,” he said.

He however asked Mudavadi to start holding serious meeting with Western leaders so as to be able to convince anyone again.

He took issue with those seeking the top seat from the region saying presenting their issues in burial services was in itself wrong but instead they should organize meeting with leaders at a designated point to discuss their future.

“Don’t wait for us in funerals to tell us how you want power but instead what you should be doing is to call us at a designated venue to discuss your position,” he said.
