Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta after conveying a meeting with a section of leaders from the Luhya community.
The Head of State conveyed the meeting after Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi joined forces with Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking in a joint rally in Nakuru, Malala said Mudavadi's shift to DP Ruto's camp caught Uhuru off guard forcing him to call a meeting with Luhya leaders.
"'Earthquake’ ilitoa President Uhuru pangoni hadi akaita viongozi kutoka Western region. Tangu 2017 President Uhuru amekuja Western mara moja pekee time ya Mashujaa
"Waluhya hawataki ugali ya Statehouse wanataka viwanda vyao vifufuliwe," the Senator stated.
According to Budalang'i MP Raphael Wanjala who attended the meeting, Uhuru declared his support for ODM leader Raila Odinga arguing that Kenyans would be more safe in his hands.
"The only thing I can tell you is that today he was more direct about his support for Raila. He told us that Kenyans would benefit more under Raila than Ruto
“He was categorical that he would soon come out of State House to campaign for him at the opportune time," Wanjala told People Daily.
Speaking during the same meeting, Mudavadi took a swipe at Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and his KANU counterpart Gideon Moi after storming out of his meeting.
The ANC party leader told off the two leaders noting that he is free to talk with anyone, adding that he cannot disassociate himself with DP Ruto because of the duo.
"If you fell out with Ruto, don't force me to do the same. The constitution is very clear, I am free to talk to anyone
"They ran way when they saw Ruto at Bomas, the people are the ones who decide," Mudavadi said.
