Savula stated that the meeting had crafted a deal to have Mudavadi deputise Raila in the August 9 polls.

“Uhuru called the first meeting with all the big five; Musalia, Raila, Kalonzo, Wetang’ula, and Gideon Moi, Musalia has appended his signature to a document which only president Uhuru Kenyatta has its original copy

“They had agreed to field a single presidential candidate, ODM inclusive. Defense CS Eugene Wamalwa and I later held a meeting with Raila in Karen and agreed that Musalia was going to be Raila’s running mate,” Savula said.

He further claimed that the deal would see the vote-rich Mt Kenya region which has been seeking the deputy slot given 50 percent of the government positions.

“We were to assign Tinga (Raila) to negotiate with Uhuru to give the central community 50 percent of the government positions because the central community is demanding the second slot. And we agreed with Tinga, Eugene Wamalwa, and me,” Savula added.

Savula however stated that while he kept on convincing Mudavadi to take up the deal, he tolf him to go slow on the deal while he was secretly negotiating with Deputy President William Ruto.
