Amani National Congress(ANC) Youth League has clapped back to Orange Democratic Movement(ODM) Party Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna barely a day after he attacked their Party leader Musali Mudavadi.
Speaking on Friday at a press conference in Nairobi, the National Youth League led by their Secretary-General Nathaniel Mong’are launched a scathing attack towards Sifuna accusing him of reckless ranting.
“Edwin Sifuna does not qualify to disqualify H. E Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi. Sifuna can only be answered by us in the ANCYL & he got a dose of his own medicine.
How can a political amateur who lost twin-bids in Kanduyi Constituency & Nairobi Senate race dismiss an experienced politician like Mudavadi? What’s a shame to lose both home & away,” said Mong’are.
The group SG went ahead and claimed that Sifuna was behind the loss of parliamentary seats in the three by-elections conducted in 2019 and said that the SG was bound to fail again in the Kibra race.
“Under his leadership, ODM has lost Wajir West, Embakasi South & Ugenya by-elections in less than 2 years.
He is staring at another defeat in Kibra,” he claimed.
On Thursday, Sifuna rubbished claims by ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi which indicated that the Handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga was conceived after foreign blackmails.
However, ODM claimed that the pressure from the diplomatic circles was to try and stop Mr Odinga’s mock-swearing-in at Uhuru Park
“Mudavadi is lying. The pressure from the diplomatic corps was applied to try and stop the swearing-in of the People’s President. It is, in fact, the reason “internationally renowned” diplomats/former foreign ministers failed to show up at Uhuru Park. They bowed to foreign pressure.”
Sifuna also scolded Musalia for back-tracking on the 2018 swearing-in just three days he after pledged his support for the exercise in a rally in Homa Bay County.
