Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has dismissed the One Kenya Alliance as a weak political outfit not worth mentioning in the current political terrain. Speaking to Citizen TV’s Wahiga Mwaura on Monday night, the former Majority Leader in the Senate also said they are not in any conversation over an alliance with Raila Odinga.
“Any politician who wants to be the President of Kenya would want support from anybody across the country. What I can confirm even if I may not be at the centre of that decision making, we have never had and are not planning to have a conversation towards forming a political alliance with ODM and here is the reason; We in the hustler nation and who support William Ruto for president believe that the only credible competitor we have in the country is Raila Odinga,” Murkomen said.
His sentiments were backed by ODM Chairman John Mbadi who confirmed the talk of an Odinga-Ruto alliance was a creation of the media that should not be given much thoughts.
