Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has for the first time come out openly to state that he is a Kalenjn and not a Luhya as Kenyans have believed for years.
While speaking in Baringo county on Wednesday, Musalia Mudavadi confessed that his mother Rosebella Cherono Mudavadi was an original Kalenjin from Eldama ravine.
As a result, Musalia Mudavadi made it clear that it was easier to work with deputy president William samoei ruto by virtue that they come from the same background.
Mudavadi’s sentiments come just a day after the COTU Secretary general Mr. Francis Atwoli revealed that the ANC leader was not from Mulembe nation.
Atwoli termed Musalia and Wetangula as sellouts and even questioned whether they were real Luhyas by virtue of putting their stomach ahead at the expense of the Western people.
Thus, Francis Atwoli through Twitter on Sunday criticized Mudavadi for agreeing to work with Deputy President William Ruto, saying he has ‘ashamed’ the Luhya community.
“… who told him he’s going to be President? Befriending Ruto is not the key to the Presidency. He has ashamed the Luhyas by allowing Ruto to fund his NDC,” Atwoli wrote.
The Central Organization of Trade Union COTU secretary general also gave a blow by blow account of how Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi arrived at a deal with deputy president William Samoei Ruto.
According to Atwoli, Musalia drank and slept at William Ruto’s home until 2AM in the night on the day the other One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals were attending the Naivasha meeting
The COTU boss went ahead to reveal that Mudavadi ignored phone calls from both Gideon Moi and Kalonzo Musyoka since he did not have the audacity to pick the same and tell them not to attend his ANC National Delegate Conference scheduled for 23rd Sunday if he knew he was going to invite his host for the night.
