Suspicion continues to rock the One Kenya Alliance, an outfit bringing together ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), and Gideon Moi (KANU). OKA outfit has been fashioning itself as the real promoters of the BBI and the current legal barriers facing the joint Uhuru-Raila project seem to have slowed down the OKA momentum, given that the quadruple intended to ride on the BBI wave as the country heads to 2022.
According to multiple sources, the uncertainty of BBI getting a favorable legal outcome from the Court of Appeal has prompted the OKA principals to start exploring other ways of capturing power in next year’s general elections. Musalia Mudavadi, one of the OKA principals has revived talks with Deputy President William Ruto on the possibility of working together in 2022.
Even though the ANC leader’s camp has not confirmed or denied the talks, a source from Musalia Mudavadi Center at Nairobi’s Riverside Drive confided to this publication the talks have been going on for almost three weeks now and are coordinated by Eliud Owalo, Barack Muluka and Caroli Omondi, all of whom are allies of Mr. Mudavadi inside the DP’s camp.
The revival of Ruto-Mudavadi talks comes at a time Kalonzo Musyoka and his OKA counterpart Moses Wetangula are said to be working in a secret pact within the alliance, with eyes on a scenario where Mr. Musyoka guns for the top-seat, deputised by Senator Wetangula.
