Kenya: Jubilee Did Not Drop Mudavadi - UDF

UDF has dismissed claims that Deputy Prime minister Musalia Mudavadi was 'dropped' from the Jubilee coalition. In a statement sent to newsrooms by Kibisu Kabatesi, the DPM's Director of communication, has termed the announcement by TNA and URP as, 'dishonorable.'

He accused Uhuru and Ruto of per-empting Musalia's decision to leave the coalition. He said, "It should be on record that Hon. Mudavadi had already informed the couple of his decision to severe ties on serious grounds of dishonour, and lack integrity and commitment by the couple."

The statement confirmed that Mudavadi will continue on his quest to be on the ballot in March 2013 on a UDF ticket, "If they thought they had schemed to prevent Hon.

Mudavadi from ascending to the presidency, they bet on the wrong car because Hon. Mudavadi continues his campaigns for the presidency on UDF ticket undeterred." the statement reads.

To give a hint of how bad the relationship between the Mudavadi and his erstwhile political partners had sunk, the statement ends by urging Kenyans to reject the Jubilee coalition in next year's elections, " We call on Kenyans to take note of the incurable lack of honour of the pair and pass their verdict next year."
