Kenyans must interrogate persons contesting for leadership positions to avoid regrets in future for electing  bad leaders, Amani National Congress (ANC) leader, Musalia Mudavadi has said.

Mudavaddi said for years, Kenyans have made mistakes of electing in office persons who lack substance then later resort to blaming and questioning them when those persons fail to meet their expectations.

“However, the only way of electing good leaders must be guided by interrogating them before voting.

Let’s avoid the tendency of voting then interrogating,” he was talking to journalists after attending a Sunday service at the House of Grace in Nairobi West.

Mudavadi said the poor choice of leadership in Kenya has bred impunity, intolerance and a culture of glorification of violence that are currently being witnessed in the country.

“We must move away from leaders who embrace impunity. We must move away from leaders who promote violence.

We must move away from leaders who glorify corruption. Let’s get away from these leaders.

The opportunity is beckoning through the vote. Interrogate then vote. This country needs more good people,” he added.

Public rallies presided over recently in parts of Nairobi by Deputy President, William Ruto and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga were marred by violence, which Mudavadi  suspected were pre-arranged.

“We must be careful on the tone of communication; glorification of violence; impunity and display of intolerance in public events mainly presided by politicians as witnessed recently. 

All these situations sum up to incitement that has been playing out openly,” he said and called on Kenyans to stay away from leaders who expose them to such circumstances.

He called on Kenyans to revisit Chapter 6 of the Constitution.
