Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi on Tuesday said Uhuru Kenyatta agreed to step down and back him as Jubilee Alliance flag bearer and signed an agreement in the presence of Eldoret North MP William Ruto.
Addressing a press conference Mudavadi said Uhuru met him at his Riverside home where he told him that he will not contest for presidency.
“He said that he had reflected on the state of affairs of the country and decided to with draw his candidature and support me,” said Mudavadi.
He said they agreed to put the agreement on paper and their lawyers worked on the same and they signed.
“We then left for Uhuru’s home accompanied by our two lawyers. We signed another agreement here with Uhuru in the presence of William Ruto and the two lawyers, he agreed to withdraw his candidature” he said.
Earlier on Tuesday, members of The National Alliance (TNA) party had said they will not recognise the Agreement between Uhuru and Mudavadi.
TNA delegates met at the Multi Media University in Nairobi in a bid to overturn Uhuru’s decision.
However, it emerged that Uhuru had told MPs during a meeting at Panafric Hotel on Monday evening that he had signed the agreement and was ready to honour it.
