  • Brother Hon. Mudavadi is more and more sounding like a confused person. Thats simply because the language which he borrowed from his comrades at Odm is the one he is parading through and through. You then start wondering why in the first place he left the party when he shares the same same divisive ideology with them. Leaders are supposed to give ideas and solutions to our problems. But not mere blame game thats only meant to cast aspersions on others. This blame syndrone is the hallmark of Odm, thats never known to offer any single shred of solution to our problems. Mudavadi is clearly showing that despite all the pretences to the contrary, he is still indeed Odm damu!
    However, brother Mudavadi has been parading himself as a later day moderate Kikuyu savior. But if he hasnt changed abit as events have shown, what are we supposed to read from his script? We know brother Mudavadi was among the merchants of deceit that called Kikuyus vile pumpkin weeds. That needed to be uprooted and taken back to their central region. What actually transpired in Kakamega during post election violence is testimony to that. In Kakamega town, Kikuyus were thrown out of their businesses and their places taken over by PEV lords. Kikuyu families in Sabatia, Mudavadi’s constituency, were the first to be uprooted. Infact, Kikuyus living as refugees on the Ugandan side of the border are basically from Mudavadi’s area.
    Its noteworthy that Mudavadi has never attempted to explain himself over these serious matters. But has continued to conduct himself as though nothing happened. If anything, his language has remained pretty wanting and unacceptable. Its hypocrisy of the highest order! He has overtime now kept on blaming the Kikuyus for “only voting for their own,” as if it were a crime to do so. This is a known divisive Odm line meant to criminalize the right of choice. By the way, why is it that only those who sing in Mudavadi’s rallies are his village boys if its criminal to support your folks? Hon. Mudavadi should desist from assaulting rights of others if he expects to be taken seriously. He should to stop empty blames and attempt to offer solutions to our problems. However, its too late and perhaps too hard to teach an old dog new tricks, which means the guy is a non-starter!
