Since then, Mudavadi has grown bold and is no longer the dull and spiritless politician that we used to know.
He takes on the high and mighty without any fear of contradiction or reprisal, a character that he may have acquired from his new friend Ruto who says it as it is.
Yesterday, Mudavadi dared President Uhuru Kenyatta to arrest and charge Ruto if he indeed believes that he (Ruto) is corrupt.
Addressing a crowd in Malava, Kakamega County, the ANC leader noted that Uhuru has all the government agencies at his disposal and should take the necessary action against Ruto if evidence proves that he embezzled funds.
Mudavadi wondered why the President had to wait until his final days in office to start accusing Ruto of graft.
“These people, if Ruto is a thief, you have all the authority, detectives who can investigate, why haven’t you taken him to court all this while?
“It has been almost 10 years.”
“You’ve waited until you have 180 days left in office to tell us that he is a thief.
“We want Kenyans to live and know that you can only be afraid if you have done something wrong,” Mudavadi noted.
At the same time, he noted that he had no regrets for inviting Ruto to his party’s National Delegates Conference (NDC) on Sunday and eventually joining him and told those aggrieved by his decision to go to hell.
