Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has urged Kenyans to rally behind Amani National Congress (ANC) Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi for the 2022 Presidency, arguing that he is a safe pair of hands.

Speaking during an interview on Radio Citizen on Wednesday, Malala claimed that Mudavadi is a neutral leader who is loved across the country; therefore voting him as Kenya’s next president will neither rise political temperatures nor cause division in the country.

Malala noted that currently there are two extremes in the country; with ODM Leader Raila Odinga being on one extreme and Deputy President William Ruto on the other.

He claimed that if Raila wins the presidency in 2022, one half of the country will not be happy, adding that the same applies for a Ruto win in the 2022 presidential election.

The vocal senator further claimed that if Raila wins the presidency he will send to prison and vice versa. According to him, the two leaders have anger enraged deep inside them; which he argues is not good for the country.

“Raila akikuwa Rais atafunga Ruto, Ruto akiwa Rais atafunga Raila. Hawa watu wako na hasira zile za ndani kabisa…Wanazungumza leo kesho wanaenda kutukanana. Wanasema huyu ni mganga, huyu ni mwizi…,” Malala said in part.

According to Malala, Ruto and Raila should rally behind Mudavadi in 2022 for the sake of the country’s stability.

“For 2022 being a transition year, mimi naona mpaka tuchague kiongozi Yule ako neutral, yule kiongozi ambaye Wakenya wote watafurahia… Kiongozi huyo ni Musalia Mudavadi,” he said.
