Why Musalia Mudavadi opposed Raila’s swearing – Miguna Miguna reveals
Lawyer Miguna Miguna has just released his new book, Treason: The Case Against Tyrants and Renegades. In the 450 paged book, Miguna has no kind words for the former Vice President, Musalia Mudavadi.
Lawyer Miguna Miguna, who was deported to Canada for having participated in the 30th January 2018 swearing in ceremony of Raila Odinga, has stated that Musalia Mudavadi was against the process right from the start.
On 27th January 2018, during the Homa Bay declaration, all the National Super Alliance (NASA) principals promised an electrifying crowed that they will go in to swear Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka.
It is however revealed, through Miguna’s book, that Musalia was not for it. At one point, a team of Raila Odinga, senator James Orengo, billionaire Jimmy Wanjigi and politician Johnstone Muthama visited Musalia at his Riverside home to try convince him to change tune, but all was in vain.
“After I had reviewed the seven-page document with Mudavadi and responded to a barrage of questions, I said the following: “The struggle has reached a point where we must separate those who represent the status quo and those who would like to transform it; between conservatives and progressive radicals…” Miguna wrote.
Mudavadi then told Miguna that he is a conservative who lavues the status quo.
“You see Miguna, I’m a conservative. I’m not a radical. I represent and value the status quo,” Mudavadi responded.
“Mheshimiwa, you gave Kenyans your word in Homa Bay, barely 24 hours ago. You gave your word to the country. You promised to go to Uhuru Park on January 30. You all stood there and swore to die for the country. You did so with your right hands over your hearts. This is the moment.” Miguna tried to push Mudavadi.
Mudavadi then looked at Raila, Orengo, Wanjigi, Muthama and Miguna on their faces, picked up a file from his drawer and left them stating that he has another meeting. This is according to Miguna Miguna’s book.
Miguna has described Musalia Mudavadi as an arrogant coward.
However, as reality had it, even the other two co-principals, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula, chicked off from Uhuru Park when Raila ‘lifted the Bible.’
Raila Odinga had given his supporters his word, that he shall ‘lift the Bible’ at Uhuru Park, and asked them to show up in numbers, and in deed, none of them disappointed.
