Mudavadi resigns as Local Government minister to join UDFP

Musalia Mudavadi resigned as Local Government minister Wednesday as he announced formally quitting ODM to join a new party.

He, however, maintained that he will continue to serve as Deputy Prime Minister and Member of Parliament for Sabatia constituency.
"After consulting the appointing authority, I have resigned as minister for Local Government," said Mr Mudavadi during a ceremony to announce the United Democratic Forum Party (UDFP) as his new political vehicle at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi Wednesday.
"I, Musalia Mudavadi, wish to announce that I will be offering myself as candidate for office of president on the ticket of the United Democratic Forum Party," he said to wild cheers.
He told the gathering that he had also quit as ODM deputy party leader accusing the Orange party of lacking internal democracy.
Mr Mudavadi said in settling for UDFP he had sought to identify with a party and individuals committed to the rule of law and one that was visionary enough to bring real change.
"UDFP will bring new energy to our body politic," he said.
The Sabatia MP said as president, he will create a minimum of 15 million jobs for Kenya youth and assist small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) in creating employment.
