“I was Musalia Mudavadi’s Right Hand Man But He Duped Me,” Comedian
Comedian and musician Thomas Omurunga Oyoro popularly known as Profesa Eshuya, has accused Musalia Mudavadi of failing to fulfill his promises.
Eshuya, who has been an ardent supporter of the ANC party leader claims he was Musalia’s right-hand man in 2013 and 2017. According to Eshuya, Musalia had promised to nominate him but the promise never materialised.
“ I was Mudavadi’s right hand man and his official emcee when he decamped from ODM to vie for presidency on United Democratic Front (UDF) in 2013. By then, Mudavadi was being regarded as a reject for his bold step to walk away from ODM. I campaigned for him vigorously in every rally he held and he promised to give me a nomination slot to the Kakamega County Assembly on UDF party which never materialised,” said Eshuya.
In the 2017 General Election, the comedian abandoned his acting career and joined the NASA brigade as a political rallies organiser and emcee.
He claims he was duped by the ANC party which had promised to nominate him.
“When the nomination list came out, I was shocked when I saw my name at position 14 despite my tireless efforts. I cannot tell what happened to my name to explain this second trickery,” he said.
Tired of Musalia’s failed promises, Eshuya shocked many when he switched allegiance to Jubilee and campaigned for Uhuru in the repeat presidential poll.
“I was very upset to see even my friends call me names. This was not the first time to work with the president since I was the chief organiser of the event to welcome him after his charges at the ICC were dropped. I mobilised people effectively and was recognised for that, so changing from NASA to Jubilee was not new,” he explained.
Eshuya now has his eyes set on an MCA position in 2022.
“I want to make it clear that I will contest for Kisa East Ward in Khwisero sub-county in 2022 since I am fed up with promises of non-existent nomination posts. I feel I can serve the people better in that capacity to empower the youths,” he said.
