A war of words has erupted between Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua and Amani Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi after the former accused the latter of copying his ideas.
In a clip that has gone viral on social media, Mutua claims that Mudavadi has been copying his ideas and owning them.
He says the Country needs leaders who are innovative and not ones who copy other leaders’ ideas.
“Musalia Mudavadi stop copying me, please get your own ideas, when I was announcing my candidature that am running for president I said Kenya needs a safe pair of hands, a few days later nikaona unasema Kenya needs a safe pair of hands, copying me,” He said.
Mutua further claims that after he recorded a video speaking sheng, Mudavadi went ahead to do the same.
But in a quick rejoinder Mudavadi’s communication team dismissed the claims as a fallacy, saying the slogan “Kenya needs a safe pair of hands” was Mudavadi’s slogan in 2013.
“Did Mutua patent “Sheng”? Can he tell Kenyans when he did so and under which Intellectual Property law. Which Act gives Mutua the intellectual ownership of “sheng?” They posed.
Butere Member of Parliament Tindi Mwale weighed in on the matter warning Mutua that Mudavadi is not his political equal and shouldn’t even respond to his claims.
Mwale said Mudavadi is master in coming up with political slogans, saying Mutua lacks the clout to be a presidential candidate.
