I was not invited to Atwoli’s meeting — Mudavadi

By Vincent Kejitan | May 30th 2020

ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi has said he is not aware of what was discussed by leaders from the western region who congregated at the home of COTU Secretary-General Francis Atwoli on Friday.

Mudavadi said he was not on the list of invitees, adding that he can only comment on the meeting he held with NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua, Peter Kenneth and Sally Kosgei.

“Is there a script that Musalia should meet certain people? If Musalia has a meeting with one or two people they expect me to seek permission from them?” he asked.

According to a statement seen by Ureport, Mudavadi met the leaders to discuss challenges facing the nation.

“ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi on Friday afternoon met with Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua, Peter Kenneth, and former Head of Public Service ambassador Sally Kosgei.

“They discussed the challenges facing the nation and agreed to jointly with other like-minded people put heads together in search for sustainable solutions,” the statement said.

Leaders from western Kenya yesterday met to chart a new political path for the vote-rich region.

In a meeting that brought together 40 local legislators, the team sought to speak in one voice going forward. However, Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula were absent.

But even as leaders met to seek the elusive Luhya unity, Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya came out knighted as the regions political leaders in what observers say could lead to fresh divisions.

After the four hour-meeting, Wamalwa and Oparanya as well as Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli were picked to represent the Western on the negotiation table with the government.

They now carry the responsibility of presenting western Kenya's demands to the Building Bridges Initiative spearheaded by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga for a share of the spoils of the handshake.
