One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals, Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetangula (Ford-Kenya), and Cyrus Jirongo (KANU) today held a meeting at a Nairobi hotel to discuss a possibility of Wetangula and Jirongo supporting the ANC leader to be the alliance’s flagbearer in 2022.

The meeting comes at a time when reports on a section of the media indicate two OKA principals have agreed to shelve their presidential ambitions in favor of ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Meanwhile, the former prime minister and deputy president William Ruto have intensified their 2022 campaigns with Ruto raiding the ODM supremo’s Luo Nyanza base.

Tomorrow, the UDA leader will hold a roadside rally at Kondele then head to Nyahera, in Kisumu West constituency for a meeting with smallscale traders before winding up his tour of the county at Nyalunya Primary School in Kisumu East, where he is expected to give a school bus donation to the institution.

He will be in Homabay on Thursday and wind up his three-day tour in Migori county hosted by Governor Okoth Obado the following day.

On the other hand, ODM boss Raila Odinga met a delegation of leaders from the lower Eastern region counties at Chungwa House in Nairobi as he prepares for his Azimio la Umoja tour of the region in the coming days.
