Running on Empty: Another Mudavadi Ally Dumps Him

Nabulindo stated that he was not ready to lead his people to the opposition because he wanted them to benefit from development projects initiated by the national government.

Story Highlights
  • The first-term MP explained that the people of Matungu had instructed him to join Raila's camp after realising that the former Prime Minister will form the next government.
  • "The people of Matungu want me to be in the next government so that I can bring development to this area and I can't do that when I'm in the opposition, so they have told me to join Azimio since it will form the next government," he explained.

Matungu Member Parliament, Peter Oscar Nabulindo, on Monday, January 10, revealed that he had joined Azimio La Umoja, which is backed by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga.

The first-term MP explained that the people of Matungu had instructed him to join Raila’s camp after realising that the former Prime Minister will form the next government.

Further, Nabulindo stated that he was not ready to lead his people to the opposition because he wanted them to benefit from development projects initiated by the national government.

“The people of Matungu want me to be in the next government so that I can bring development to this area and I can’t do that when I’m in the opposition, so they have told me to join Azimio since it will form the next government,” he explained.

Nabulindo was elected Matungu MP in March 2021, following the death of Justus Murunga. He trounced Orange Democratic Movement (ODM)’s David Were with 4,000 votes.

He is the latest lawmaker to join Raila’s camp. On December 31, 2021, Lugari MP Ayub Savula revealed that he would back Raila’s quest to become the fifth President of Kenya.

He, however, stated that he would seek the Kakamega gubernatorial seat on Mudavadi’s Amani National Congress (ANC) party ticket.

Speaking during the Bukhungu II convention, Savula described the One Kenya Alliance (OKA), which comprises; Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), and Gideon Moi (KANU) as a useless outfit.

“I have moved from today to Raila’s Azimio La Umoja. I’m now supporting Raila for President. That thing called OKA is just useless,” he stated.

In August 2020, ANC suffered a big blow after Eliud Owalo, a former campaign manager for Raila, resigned from the party.

He revealed that the decision to leave ANC was in order to create space within the party and around the party leader sot that the party can strategically position itself without feeling suffocated by his views and suggestions.
