President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga are working behind the scene to cobble up an alliance which will bring together country’s top leaders under a single outfit for 2022. Over the weekend, Raila Odinga and ANC boss Musalia Mudavadi held a closed-door meeting in Mombasa accompanied by a Coast governor as well as former Speaker of the National Assembly Kenneth Marende. Also in attendance was Minority Whip and Suna East MP Junet Mohammed.
”The ANC leader came to Mombasa on Thursday evening. Raila arrived with Junet Mohammed on Friday after attending the burial of former MP Kalembe Ndile in Kibwezi. Nobody is authorised to leak what was discussed or who was in attendance,” a source confided to this publication.
Musalia Mudavadi who has been on a Coastal tour to popularise his 2022 bid on Monday denied such a meeting took place and even went ahead to say there was a serious deficit of trust in NASA, in reference to Mr. Odinga’s Friday remarks NASA will be working together in 2022.
“We have a very serious deficit of trust in Nasa. In fact, maybe it is irredeemable,” said Mudavadi.
One Kenya Alliance luminaries Gideon Moi, Kalonzo Musyoka, and Moses Wetangula have all showed interest in working with Raila Odinga in 2022 and with the reported talks between Mr. Odinga and Mr. Mudavadi, the talks of a super alliance are slowly picking up and could be a reality before the year ends.
On Monday, President Uhuru Kenyatta said at State House in Nairobi be will back and campaign for one of the former NASA principals in the 2022 elections.
