Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has supported the recent meeting between former president Daniel Moi and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga. Speaking in Nakuru yesterday, Mr Mudavadi welcomed the visit by Mr Odinga, saying it was a “great show of concern for his political mentor.” “The former president represents a father figure to almost all of us and the visit by Mr Odinga is very encouraging. It is a show of concern,” said Mr Mudavadi. He urged people not to read too much politics into the meeting, saying that he would do the same if he had an opportunity. LIKE-MINDED “I don’t see any problem with anyone going to visit retired President Moi as he has done so much for this country. I think everyone should do the same whenever an opportunity comes,” he added. At the same time, Mr Mudavadi  said he is ready to engage and work with like-minded leaders. He expressed his willingness to engage all leaders including Kanu chairman Gideon Moi to support his quest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022. Mr Moi is the senator of Baringo County. “If you want to be a leader in this country, you must be able to engage (others). I have worked with Senator Moi before and I am ready to engage him again when an appropriate time comes,” said Mr Mudavadi. DIALOGUE He also defended the plan to merge his party with Ford-Kenya and dismissed claims that he is forming a Luhya party saying ANC and Ford-Kenya are national parties which will not lock out other communities. “The consolidation of ANC and Ford-Kenya is on course. We are not intending to lock out other communities since the parties have representation (from) across the country,” said Mr Mudavadi He further maintained his position that there should be an all-inclusive national dialogue. He commended church leaders for supporting his call, saying that their voice is a major boost to his vision of peace and justice in the country.
