Leaders from western region have asked the former Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi to put aside their political differences and focus on establishing their own political party in the region.
Malava Member of the National Assembly Malulu Injendi asked the former prime Minister to unite with other leaders including Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula, Kenneth Marende and Cyrus Jirongo and come up with a party that can gain full support in the region.
“Musalia should know that UDF is not part of us since everything was planned for them and he has gone through hardship times with the party that always makes decisions for him”, said Malulu.
He told Mudavadi to learn from past mistakes arguing that UDF has always taken a different direction in his support and called on him to put the house in order since he has started receiving rejection from his people after adopting a party that does not get massive support.
Malulu who was addressing his constituents in Malava advised Khalwale and Mudavadi to stop fighting one another politically.
He urged the government to releases CDF funds claiming that most constituencies have not received it.
The MP also said his constituency is lagging behind in development claiming he has not received development funds.
“The government allocated 84 million to my constituency but up to now I have received only Ksh 2 million for salaries and administrative purposes but no funds for development”, said Malulu.
The fund is to maintain my constituency and the most affected people are students in learning institutions who depend on it to pursue studies.
