Garissa Township MP Aden Duale has laughed off possibilities of Musalia Mudavadi ascending to presidency.
Speaking at a fundraiser event in Bulimbo, Kakamega county on Saturday evening, Duale urged Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula to join Jubilee part so as to stop living in the political cold.
"You saw the number of votes both Musalia's and Wetangula's candidates got in the library by-elections: it was far below the threshold, but if they combine forces with other leaders from Western, they can make a significant political impact”, he said.
The National Assembly majority leader noted that the Luhya community has large numbers but unless the leaders commence reading from the same script, it will be difficult for them to smell power.
Duale highlighted that it is impossible for Musalia or Wetangula to be president as possible per the current political tides.
He maintained that the Western region can only make a brilliant political statement if such leaders unite and swim in the same political waters.
"I want to tell my friends Musalia and Wetangula that as at now they don't have the numbers to vie for presidency, let them unite first then I invite them to join jubilee so as to make a huge political impact in their home turf", he added.
Duale pleaded with politicians to stop politicking the BBI issue and instead wait to read its content first.
Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali raised to the podium and asked the Luhya nation to backup DP Ruto's political ideology.
