Kenya: Back Mudavadi Uhuru, Ruto Told

Housing Minister Soita Shitanda has asked presidential aspirants Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto to step down in favor of DPM aspirant Musalia Mudavadi.

Shitanda asked the two to support Mudavadi after the DPM supported Kenyatta in 2002 and former president Moi during KANU the regime.

"I am kindly requesting you Ruto to support Mudavadi after your father Daniel Moi served as president for 24 years, and Kenyatta, your dad was the president for 15 years and Kibaki for 10 years, please support Mudavadi this time round" he said. Mudavadi joined the presidential race after decamping from Raila's ODM.
