Musalia declines invitation to Raila’s Azimio la Umoja event
Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has declined to attend Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga's Azimio la Umoja meeting scheduled to take place at Kasarani on Friday, December 10.
Musalia confirmed that he had been invited to the meeting but he will not attend it because he will be engaged elsewhere.
"The invitation was addressed in my personal capacity as ANC Party Leader and not OKA Principal.
"Regrettably, I will not be able to attend because of personal engagements," he said in a statement.
He further acknowledged that he was in competition with the ODM leader for the country's top job next year.
"Raila Odinga is a worthy competitor. I wish him well because tomorrow will clearly be his day in the sun," he added.
Raila is expected to declare his candidature for the presidency at the event.
