Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi on Thursday held consultative meetings with Nairobi aspirants under the alliance.
During the consultative meeting with the grassroots leaders drawn from Ruaraka, Roysambu and Mathare constituencies, Mudavadi took a swipe at those questioning his track record during his tenure as local government minister.
Mudavadi said he also spearheaded economic recovery in the country.
Mudavadi further waded into the fuel crisis faulting the delayed disbursement of fuel subsidies to oil marketers, blaming a nationwide fuel crisis on monopolistic cartels.
“Kupitia kwa statement kwa magazeti nimeona huyo jamaa wa Azimio anasema tuko na shida ya petroli kwa sababu ya Russia na Ukraine. Lakini hii Russia na Ukraine ikiwa inatuchapa hapa, mafuta iko Uganda? Mbona wale wana mafuta hakuna foleni ama Milolongo kwa petrol station zao?” He posed.
“Lakini hapa tunaambiwa eti kwa sababu ya Ukraine ndio maana kuna Mlolongo…na mafuta ya Uganda inapita hapa…hawa wanatuhadaa, waache unafiki. If you were one-time clever, this time let us be two times clever. Wakati uchumi ilikuwa inaangamia mimi niliinua hiyo uchumi…kwani ulikuwa unataka mimi nikuje nikupikie ugali kwako?”
