UDF Presidential candidate Musalia Mudavadi yesterday held a road show in Nairobi to drum up support for his bid. The road show started at Wakulima market, country Bus, Shauri Moyo, Burma market, Bahati, Buru Buru and culminated with a rally at Kayole.
He was accompanied by his wife Tessi, Justice minister Eugene Wamalwa and UDF Nairobi senator candidate Stanley Livondo. Mudavadi outlined the policies and projects the Amani Coalition has in store for urban areas if it wins.
He promised to fast-track industrialisation, create jobs for the urban youth by revamping the jua kali sector, introduce tram transport in Nairobi and tackle water shortage under projects for urban renewal.
Mudavadi promised a peaceful future if elected adding that he is a "a safe pair of hands". He said he offers Kenya an alternative leadership from the two feuding alliances of Jubilee and Cord.
"I plead with you to elect me to neutralise their anger," he said at Country Bus station. Wamalwa said there is no war between Amani and Jubilee or Cord.
"We have no grudge with either of them. Mudavadi is the most suitable presidential candidate," he said. The Amani coalition is made up of Mudavadi's UDF, Wamalwa's New Ford Kenya and Kanu which is headed by Gideon Moi.
Mudavadi formed the coalition after falling out with Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and his running mate William Ruto claiming that they had promised him the presidential ticket then reneged on it.
