- Waluke said the two Luhya leaders were afraid of competing with other candidates and would fail in the race
- The Sirisia legislator claimed Mudavadi was used to soft politics and being rewarded with positions, something he said would not happen again
- The Jubilee politician also slammed FORD Kenya leader Moses Wetangu'la for going back to Raila's camp even after being humiliated
Sirisia MP John Waluke has slammed Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi and his FORD Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangu'la for being too lazy to hunt for votes which would propel them to the country's top seat
Waluke alleged the two leaders were not serious about running for the presidency and were merely taking Kenyans for a ride.
Speaking in his Sirisia backyard on Saturday, May 11, the Jubilee MP challenged the two leaders from Mulembe nation to wake up and start hunting for votes from all parts of the country or risk suffering another humiliation.
"Mudavadi is sleeping while his competitors are traversing the country to seek votes, as we are talking, Ruto is in Turkana campaigning. Wetangu'la is has gone back to Raila," he said
The Tanga Tanga team member took issue with Mudavadi's complains over Ruto's early campaigns saying he too had the chance to start seeking for support in advance
Waluke castigated the former vice president for being too soft and waiting to be rewarded.
"In politics you have to compete, you don't just sleep and wait to be elected from your bed, Mudavadi must wake up and look for support from Eastern, Nyanza, Central and other parts of the country ," said the MP.
Mudavadi and Wetang'ula have declared their interest to run for the presidency in 2022 and have hinted at working together to unite the Luhya community ahead of the contest.
They also hinted at dissolving their respective parties to form one unifying outfit on whose platform one presidential candidate from the region would vie.
