Details Leak on Who Kalonzo Might Soon Join After Mudavadi Decided to Work With Ruto

New details now indicate that the One Kenya Alliance has since died, a painful death that took place yesterday after half of the alliance co-principals decided to team up with the opponent.

ANC boss Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya's Moses Wetangula announced that they have decided to join DP William Ruto, irking the other two, Gideon Moi (KANU) and Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper).

The two staged a dramatic walkout from Mudavadi's NDC meeting at the Bomas of Kenya on Sunday, where the union was announced, after it dawned on them that Ruto would be the chief guest.

Sources close to them have now told The Star that they might soon team up with ODM leader Raila Odinga and his Azimio La Umoja camp, which is the main opponent of Ruto and his Hustler Nation.

Already that have announced their divorce from Mudavadi and Wetangula, saying that what he tried to do to them at the Bomas was unacceptable.

“We have to part ways since some of his friends are not our friends and we are unsafe with them. We are therefore moving to higher political grounds where Kenyans are safer...we would like to wish Hon Mudavadi the best of luck as he joins his other partners,” they said in a statement after the incident.

The paper has also established that just as was being claimed by allies of Mudavadi like Lugari MP Ayub Savula, himself and Wetangula have for weeks been secretly planning the alliance announced at Bomas.

But they recently denied being in talks with the DP, adding that they haven't received any invitation to talk to him, as Kalonzo too denied having anything going on with Raila or his Azimio camp.

Ruto on Sunday confirmed his teaming up with the two leaders, announcing that they will kick off joint rallies as they seek even more partners.

“I want to confirm on behalf of UDA and my team that with ANC, Ford Kenya and all the other parties, we will walk this journey of bringing Kenyans together,” said the DP while addressing the Bomas crowd.
