The former Vice President also lashed out at those claiming he is old, maintaining that he is still fit and lively.
“Niaje wasee mko vipi? Nimefikisha tu ka-sixty (60 years old), wale walikua wanasema mimi ni mzae, mliskia wapi, niko kamili, je na wewe uko vipi?” He said in part.
He then urged the youth to think about their future and support him to make the future great.
“Sisi hapa Kenya tutaenda vipi tukienda mbele, naomba tushikane tuwe kitu kimoja kama mbogi moja ndio kenya iende mbele ama we unaonaje la pili nawashikuru kwa kunitumia ujumbe wa happy birthday, pia naomba sisi wote tushukuru mwenyezi mungu kwa kutuweka hapa,” he concluded.

In a past interview, Mudavadi said that the country must empower the youth to realise accelerated growth because of their high numbers.
“The youth are an important sub-system of any country in the world and Kenya is no exception. Young people must be encouraged to have greater participation in decision making to ensure public service delivery meets their specific needs,” he said.
