ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi has called on Kenyans to elect good leaders in 2022 who will help resuscitate the economy.
Speaking in Nyaribo Village, Nyeri Town Constituency during the burial ceremony for the late Mwalimu Gachanja Wa Kiai, the brother to Human Activist Maina Kiai, Mudavadi called on the Senate to expedite the process of having an amicable and lasting solution on the impasse on Revenue Allocation that has seen counties partially shut down due to the delayed disbursement of resources to counties.
“Nobody should feel that the final formula accepted by the Senate is against them. But most importantly we must make sure that the cake does not continue to shrink,” he said.
“Because even if we have the right formula and the resources are not there because they are being consumed by debt and other things we shall continuously fall into trouble.” He added
Moving forward we need to ask ourselves what kind of Leadership are we looking for post-2022. Is it leadership that can actually resuscitate the economy or not?” Mudavadi asked.
The ANC leader further noted that the country has over-borrowed and pressure was now mounting on the economy.
“Kenyans need to face up to the fact that the country is broke!”
On his part, Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga said that the people of Nyeri are yet to decide together with their leadership on whom they will back for the Presidency come 2022. He assured the ANC leadership that he was welcome to come and talk Nyeri to talk to the people and seek their blessing and support ahead of the 2022 polls.
This is the second time Mudavadi has been in the larger Mt Kenya region in a span of two weeks after attending another burial last Friday in Murang’a county.
