After exiting the National Super Alliance (NASA) to join the One Kenya Alliance (OKA), Wiper, ANC and Ford Kenya parties could be in a crisis following revelations ODM leader has managed to court Baringo Senator Gideon Moi to his side, effectively snatching him away from the OKA. KANU, which has a post-election agreement with the Jubilee party ending in 2022 says its highest decision-making organ NEC, failed to ratify a decision to officially join the One Kenya Alliance.
”To our brothers we are currently in talks with, Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka should respect the agreement we have with Jubilee. We have been told by our NDC to support Jubilee and we are not turning back,” Secretary-General Nick Salat said on Wednesday.
On his part, Senator Gideon Moi insists everyone must be brought on board, including ODM leader Raila Odinga and any leader opposed to their plans is at will to leave.
”We have to unite. All of us. If anyone wants to go their way, let them go. We will meet at the ballot, it will be us versus them. There is no dillydallying, we know what we want,” the Baringo senator when he hosted a delegation of grassroots leaders from Kirinyaga county.
On Monday Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka announced his outfit had exited NASA and was set to enter the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) party.
“We have unanimously agreed to exit Nasa and form a bigger coalition, OKA. We are killing Nasa but not killing other parties like ODM. We want to work with ODM, Jubilee, and other parties. We welcome other parties because we in OKA will form the next government,” Kalonzo said.
However, with KANU officially rejecting Mudavadi and Kalonzo’s offer to join them in OKA, the new alliance now remains with Amani National Congress, Wiper Democratic Movement, and Ford-Kenya.
