Friday August 10, 2018 - Speaker of the Senate, Ken Lusaka, has said Luhya community leaders lack logistics to win the Presidency in 2022.
A section of Luhya leaders led by Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, have vowed to contest for the Presidency saying they have numbers to win the coveted seat in 2022.
But Speaking during a talk show on Sulwe FM on Thursday, Lusaka said Luhya leaders lack logistics and preparedness to run for the top seat.
The Speaker said the Luhya community was still divided and was not speaking in one voice which would guarantee them unity to convince voters to vote in one basket.
He said other tribes were speaking in one voice and that was why they had shown interest and are fronting certain individuals for the Presidency.
"Luhyas leaders are still divided, they are not speaking in one voice, this is our main undoing, let's move together and negotiate for a stake in the Government, backstabbing will mess us up," said Lusaka.
The former Bungoma Governor also said greed will only make people from other regions see their nakedness because they keep undressing each other in the public eyes.
"Divisions among Luhya leaders will always cost us, we need to chat and negotiate for the best positions in the next government, if one of us gets it we should celebrate instead of calling each other names, that's how we will be strengthening each other,” he noted.
