Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has taken a swipe at fellow politicians warning them that the youth are tired of the slow pace of development.

Speaking on Thursday, December 2 at the launch of ANC's revamped digital platform, Mudavadi said that leaders should be worried because young people are tired of their slow pace.

"If people are worried that the young people are running very fast then they must wake up to the reality that the young people are worried about us going to slowly," Mudavadi said.

The ANC chief further stated that Kenya's young generation are only interested in seeing results in the national scene.

In his address, Musalia also reiterated that he will not step down from the race to replace President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2022 general election in favour of another candidate.

"There are deadlines that will come next year about coalitions and so forth. Don't panic, we will talk, grow, widen the net and then with accordance with IEBC regulations we will fulfill our mandate," Musalia said.

On Tuesday, One Kenya Alliance (OKA) leaders convened a crisis meeting to discuss growing suspicion among themselves and their allies over alleged underhand dealings with their political opponents.

Top on the agenda of that meeting were claims that some principals and their close allies are holding secret talks with Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Claims that some of the leaders in the OKA camp have been holding talks with their opponents are fuelling animosity and rifts in the political grouping whose leadership has been hoping to create a “Third Force” in the 2022 presidential race, sources intimated.

People Daily established that Mudavadi, Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya boss Moses Wetangula and his Kanu counterpart Gideon Moi, used the meeting to address the emerging suspicions that have seen them and their surrogates trade accusations and counter-accusations.
