Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has denied reports that Deputy President William Ruto and a section of UDA party officials have been invited to his party leader’s meeting on Sunday.
ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi said he will make a major declaration that will shake Kenya’s political setting.
After it emerged that OKA Principals had been invited to the function together with the Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi, allegations also emerged that the DP could also have been invited.
This comes after reports indicated that the ANC leader is gravitating towards the DP’s camp considering that Malala, his influential footsoldier, enjoys close ties with the DP.
The Kakamega Senator, who spoke to the Star, however, termed the reports as propaganda saying the DP has not been invited.
“I am not a member of the committee that is sending invites but I do not think the party has invited the Deputy President. We have invited Speaker Justin Muturi, Oka principals and Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua,” he added.
The Kakamega senator added that it would be weird for the DP to be invited to the function yet he is a competitor.
“In such events, people invite friends and not the competition,” he added.
Mudavadi is expected to make a major political announcement on Sunday.
The ANC invite cards indicate that he is set to launch his presidential bid.
OKA leaders including Wipers Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula, KANU’s Gideon Moi are expected to attend the event.
