ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi has cautioned Kenyans against getting into the deceit and deception political trap ahead of the 2022 General Elections.
Mudavadi said politicians should sell their policies to Kenyans other than using the language and tactics of tokenism and hand- outs.
He warned such politics eventually lead to massive corruption and increased taxes imposed on poor Kenyans as politicians thrive to recover their monies through dubious means once they sail to power.
“We have our elections two years from now but there is one thing that is glaring in Kenya, politics of deceit and deception,” said Mudavadi.
Mudavadi continued “We are seeing unbelievable things. A President on one side is calling a conference to talk about Covid-19 crisis while his Deputy is doing wheelbarrows elsewhere. This is not Governance,”
Mudavadi criticised Deputy President William Ruto for distancing himself from the operations and functionality of the government under President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“We are seeing higher figures of poverty, increased corruption, hospitals lack medicine, we are basically all under siege,” reiterated the ANC Party Leader.
Mudavadi thwarted tokenism and hand-outs culture.
He cautioned Kenyans that politicians giving out wheelbarrows and water tanks will one day demands compensation when in power.
Mudavadi who has declared his interest in the Presidency come 2022 says there is need to restore moral fabric within the society and specifically in the political class claiming that a section of politicians have already started beating drum beats of hate and ethnicity even before the real campaign time kicks off.
He urged the church to intervene now instead of waiting for situation to worsen as the 2022 general election campaigns hots-up.
Mudavadi reiterated the need for Kenyans to think of a holistic approach towards getting long lasting solutions especially for the predominant youth population other than subjecting the youth to theatrics and hand-outs without providing solutions to their problems.
“Rescuing the country’s economy is not a simple fire fighting operation. It is long-term effort that requires consistency, good will from Kenyans and good will from the international community,” noted Mr Mudavadi.
Mudavadi called on the church to play its role in rescuing the country from the hands of deceiving politicians who might plunge the country in chaos.
