What you need to know:

  • Mudavadi recently hinted at another wave of a ‘political earthquake’ akin to the one that marked his entry into Ruto’s fold in 2022.
  • Mudavadi’s star seems to be rising fast, first after he was appointed PCS and later given a powerful Foreign and Diaspora Affairs Cabinet portfolio.
  • Mudavadi is now likely to be handed a deputy party leader position in UDA, making him at par with Gachagua.
