Amani National Congress (ANC) Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi has called on Kenyans to embrace peace as the country heads to the 2022 General Election.
The Amani leader said the country should not be subjected to the events of 2007 elections where many Kenyans were killed, maimed and rendered IDP’s following the post election violence.
He said no Kenyan should be victimized for exercising their democratic right to elect a leader of their choice.
“The events of 2007 post election violence are very fresh in our minds. We know what lead to what happened and that is why I am asking Kenyans to embrace peace at all cost. We should not allow anyone to intimidate us to voting their way. Kenya belongs to us all,” he said.
Mudavadi said no politics should lead to a blood shed.
“We need a peaceful transition from President Uhuru Kenyatta government to Musalia Mudavadi administration. I promise Kenyans that my agenda for this country is peace and a working economy that will guarantee wealthy for all,” said Mudavadi.
Mudavadi who is making in-routes in the vote-rich central region said he envisages to have an economy that works for all, noting that life has become expensive for many Kenyans.
“Corruption has been the hallmark of this administration and made life very expensive. Now someone is telling you that he will fix an economy that he has rundown for the last eight years,” he said.
Mudavadi said he was the first to raise the red flag on the failing economy and advising what needed to be done.
“Everyone including those who were in government are now talking of how they will revive the economy, the same economy they have blundered,” he said.
Mudavadi reached out to Kenyans to support his campaign message of building the economy that works for all and not subjecting them to a culture of handouts.
“We want to build an economy that works for all and see to it that Kenyans are not overtaxed. This can only be achieved through a peaceful nation,” he said.
The ANC leader reiterated that Kenyans are highly taxed and that his administration will work towards lowering the taxes and ensure people have money in their pockets.
Mudavadi said the reforms in the agriculture sector should be made to work and benefit all Kenyans.
