With general elections one year away, One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals will hold a crucial meeting today to craft plans for the polls.
The principals are Musalia Mudavadi of Amani National Congress (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Gideon Moi of KANU.
The said meeting comes amid cracks in the alliance with Gideon Moi reported having dumped his colleagues for green pastures.
Yesterday, there were reports that the Senator has joined Raila Odinga’s camp and is alleged to have agreed to throw his weight behind Odinga’s presidential bid.
Reports further emerged that the Baringo Senator move came after wide consultation with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Mr. Moi’s move comes when Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and the ruling party, Jubilee, are negotiating to form a political alliance ahead of next year’s polls. KANU is part of Jubilee as it united with the outfit prior to the 2017 elections.
However, OKA leadership has rubbished the claims saying the coalition is intact.
“I have been calling political bigwigs from other parties urging them to be part of One Kenya Alliance. I have called senior politicians from the coast and they said One Kenya Alliance is a good idea,” said lawmaker Ayub Savula.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
