Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi says he has now made the decision about which party he is moving to and will be making the announcement next week.
Speaking in Nyangori Vihiga county at the close of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God Women Conference, Mudavadi urged women to take advantage of the Constitution and vie for elective posts.
The DPM asked his supporters to be patient as consultations on which party he was joining have been finalized.
The DPM who was accompanied by Housing Minister Soita Shitanda and Ikolomani MP Dr. Boni Khalwale said women have to fight for the posts and should not wait to be given on a silver plate.
Shitanda described Mudavadi as a sober and clean leader capable of uniting the nation.
Shitanda however said Justice Minister Eugene Wamalwa was still the New Ford Kenya party leader and presidential candidate for the party.
Mudavadi decided to ditch ODM after the party sought the party's full registration from the registrar of political parties, without amending its constitution to provide for a competitive nomination of its leader.
He alluded that the party was engaging in underhand deals to eliminate him from the race.
Speculation has been rife that Mudavadi was set to join New Ford Kenya.
