President Uhuru Kenyatta speaks at the funeral service of Mama Hannah Mudavadi at Mululu village in Vihiga County
  • Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has revealed that President Uhuru Kenyatta is yet to fulfill a pledge he made at his mother’s funeral in 2021.

    In a radio interview on Tuesday, March 5, the Kenya Kwanza co-principal stated that contractors were yet to start working on a road that was to be built in honour of the late Hannah Mudavadi.

    Mudavadi made the revelation after a listener sought to know the progress of the 18-kilometer road.

    “All we are doing is to wait for the contractor to come on the ground and then say he has fulfilled his pledge,” he told KBC radio Taifa.

    During the burial of Mama Hannah Mudavadi on January 9, 2021, the Head of State promised that the government would construct the 18-kilometer road leading to Mudavadi’s parents’ home. 

    At the time Uhuru was categorical that the construction works would begin by April 2021.

    “We have agreed that in honour of the departed, we shall work on the road we used coming here starting from Mango which is 18 kilometers. Before the end of three months, the work on that road will have begun,” the Head of State announced.

    Since joining Kenya Kwanza, Mudavadi has been among the vocal leaders that have called out Kenyatta’s administration. This has seen him come under sharp criticism from leaders from the region claiming that he was ungrateful.

    During an interview on KTN News in February, Central Organization for Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli claimed that Mudavadi’s statements would lead to his political downfall.

    “Mudavadi was given assistance by the President as a friend. Today he has no shame standing on a platform bashing Uhuru. Mudavadi will go down for disrespecting someone who helped him lay his mother to rest,” Atwoli stated.

    In response, Mudavadi told off Atwoli stating that his statements were disrespectful to his late mother. 

    “Atwoli, my mother died a year ago. What is your problem with her? Let her rest in peace. What is wrong with Ruto’s mother, let her be. Respect the women of this country. They are mothers,” he responded.
