Deputy President William Ruto has said that he will start talks with ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi ahead of the 2022 polls.
The Dp said he was confident that he will enter a pact with Mudavadi.
“I couldn’t reach you (Malala) because your boss, Musalia Mudavadi, plays a superior league to yours, and you know it. So, I reached him (Mudavadi), and he permitted me to grace the function,” Ruto said at Mumias Sports Complex on Friday, December 31, Kakamega County during a football tournament organised by area senator Cleophas Malala.
The Senator told Ruto that he was free to work with Musalia, by supporting his presidential bid.
“The cash prize for the Cleo Malalah Super Cup tournament will move from one to five million shillings,” Malala said.
The DP added that he has also reached out to Ford Kenya Party leader Moses Wetang’ula so that they can have a strong pact together.
“Malala, I have heard you ask me: ‘why did you come [to the tournament]? Why did you come without alerting us? The protocol team wasn’t made aware, and, as a result, there’s no red carpet rolled out for you’,” Ruto said.
“You, the people of Kakamega, I have heard you. You’ve told me to go and speak with Musalia Mudavadi, right? You’ve also told me to go and speak with Moses Wetang’ula,” said Ruto.
“Would you like Mudavadi to work with me, the hustler, or Raila Odinga? Would you like Wetang’ula to work with me or Raila Odinga?”
“I will speak with Mudavadi so that we can form the next government come 2022,” said the deputy president.
