The One Kenya Alliance (OKA) is currently in talks with the Azimio la Umoja for a joint presidential candidate. This is according to KANU Chair Gideon Moi, also one of the OKA principals.
Speaking in Nairobi at a meeting with KANU aspirants going for different seats in the city, Senator Moi revealed the two political outfits are negotiating as equal partners and will come up with a framework that will see them work as a single unit.
”We are negotiating as equal partners and have a deal that must be to our best advantage. We must be in government,” the KANU chair said.
Last week, KANU delegates gave Senator Moi the greenlight to initiate talks with the Azimio la Umoja Movement.
The party’s secretary general Nick Salat made the announcement on Thursday after the National Executive Council (NEC) made the resolutions.
“That we bestow our National Chairman the mandate to initiate structured and honest dialogue with other political formation ahead of the stipulated April 9th deadline as an equal partner and nothing less,” SG Salat said.
With OKA having made it clear that they will not join Deputy President William Ruto under the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, the only option for Moi is to join Azimio Movement.
