There is growing suspicion between Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka’s camp in the troubled OKA, over what some leaders from ANC say is Raila Odinga’s hidden hand in killing the infant alliance.
On Monday, KANU, a member of the alliance said they will be charting their own 2022 political path, and are now focused on going it alone in the polls next year.
”OKA would only have survived if BBI went through. It was reliant on BBI. With the two missteps at the High Court and the Court of Appeal, the situation does not favour OKA. It is time for Kanu to repackage itself and go out there to speak to Kenyans directly,” KANU Secretary General Nick Salat told the press.
A source within ANC reveals to this publication their members feel cheated and betrayed by KANU and Wiper parties which they claim are secretly working with Raila. Apart from the ANC Party, Wiper, ODM, and KANU all have a formal working agreement with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee.
”KANU and Wiper are working with ODM and Jubilee is the link. That is a general feeling in all our meetings,” the source said.
Elsewhere, ANC leader has embarked on shedding off the ‘endorse me’ tag and is now saying Raila Odinga owes him no political debt for backing his 2007 and 2017 presidential bids.
“I don’t believe in the idea of ‘political debts’. Raila owes me no debt politically. I am seeking the votes of all Kenyans on the basis of my economic recovery policies,” the ANC leader said in an interview on Tuesday with KASS FM.
