Mystery of Mudavadi’s Kibaki links
Posted Friday, June 8 2012 at 22:30
Analysts see the International Criminal Court cases as likely factor in Mr Mudavadi’s new connections.
Although the ICC prosecutor says he has no evidence connecting Mr Kibaki to the violence, some of the President’s supporters have built the case that by the indictment of Mr Muthaura, one of his confidants, the principal State House tenant was the prosecutor’s main target.
“The person they want is (President) Kibaki that is why they have touched on our four brothers. We must pray to God that their appeals go through at ICC so that the President can enjoy his retirement peacefully,” Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka was quoted as saying in a February 1, 2012 “prayer” meeting in Meru.
President Kibaki and Mr Mudavadi’s relationship goes far back in time to when the latter was chairing the House Business Committee while the former was Leader of Opposition in Parliament.
