COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has told off One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals over their remarks that they will not be attending the much-publicized Bukhungu Stadium meeting on December 31st, likening the outfit to a snake without head or tail. Speaking in Kakamega on Monday, Atwoli said OKA, comprising KANU, ANC, Wiper and Ford-Kenya had no leadership and will head nowhere in the next elections.
”There is no leadership in OKA. Hatuwezi chelewa because there are two horses. Mudavadi should not be used by Malala. He is a young political merchant,” the COTU Boss said.
During a meeting in Bungoma on Sunday, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula who are in the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) said the December 31st Bukhungu stadium forum is a mockery to democracy as constituted in the Constitution of Kenya.

“That meeting they are planning on December 31st, I will not attend. I want democracy to be instilled in this country. A person who is not seeking any votes cannot tell us who such be the President, Mp, MCA or Senator in this country. The message is let the people decide,” said Mudavadi.
Wetangula blamed Cotu boss Francis Atwoli, the man behind the meeting, for allegedly imposing himself as a steward in the community for his own selfish interests.
“He has given himself a position that he doesn’t have in normal life. He is going round saying things that one day we will tell him enough is enough you must stop, or we will stop you!” Wetangula stated.
This unfolded as Atwoli was having a meeting at his Khwisero residence with Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga.

Mudavadi stated that the Atwoli led Luyha unity forum was infringing on their freedom of Association as political leaders from the region.
“We don’t want Kenyans to be put on political ventilators as covid-19 politicians. We want Kenyans to be given a choice to vote on the leader they want. We cannot undermine what the constitutions provides,” the ANC leader said.
