Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi has said that ANC will not work with Jubilee following the Uhuru-Raila pact.
Mudavadi said the party will operate in the opposition and if necessary, remain alone if other opposition entities join the government.
The Nasa Coprincipal said ANC will remain committed to NASA’s vision of speaking against theft of public funds, non-accountability, arrogance, impunity, and negative ethnicity.
“ANC advises against any arrangements that continue to foster these undesirable states of affairs,” the ANC leader said told journalists on Tuesday.
“The opposition cannot accept to go into a coalition or even be part of government with the Jubilee party.”
The former vice president maintained that the Opposition must accept to operate outside government especially when holding dialogue on reforms.
“ANC will accordingly resist the woolly trappings and allures of high office and remain with the people of Kenya. If it becomes necessary, we will remain alone as the opposition as everyone else joins government,” Mudavadi said at ANC headquarters in Lavington, Nairobi.
Mudavadi further rubbished the March 9 unity pact between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga saying it was driven by the desire to fulfill individual agendas and not for the good of the country.
He said ANC will remain focused on pursuing electoral justice, review of government structure to introduce a parliamentary system, strengthen the judiciary and the rule of law, create police reforms and implement Agenda 4 on constitutional instruments.
He said the party will continue pushing for inclusivity in its engagement with the remaining NASA affiliate parties.
“We cannot possibly call for justice and rule of law in the country when we impress the rule of the jungle in the coalition.”
Mudavadi called on all NASA affiliate parties to stay true and respect the tenets of the NASA power-sharing agreement they signed during the formation of the coalition in March 2017.
“We recall the sacrifice that our party alongside Wiper and Ford Kenya made during the campaigns during last years general and presidential elections; individuals set aside ambitions to support one candidate.”
Mudavadi said this did not make other parties superior to others adding that they “regret that some have missed this point”.
He condemned the ouster of Moses Wetang’ula as the leader of minority of the senate saying ANC will stand with him in solidarity.
“We find this conduct highly reprehensible. Going forward, we will not accept this kind of tragic mischief,” Mudavadi said.
