The One Kenya Alliance is set to hold a crisis meeting today to plan for the 2022 elections, despite reports of cracks in the coalition.
This comes after KANU Chairman Gideon Moi reportedly defected from OKA to join former Prime Minister Raila Odinga's team ahead of the 2022 General Election, leaving Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya) in the dust.
Wiper National Vice-Chair Mutula Kilonzo Jnr, on the other hand, dismissed claims of a split and stated that all OKA principals will attend the consultation forum.
“A coalition has formed between Jubilee and KANU. So, if ODM joins Jubilee, KANU Chairman Gideon Moi would be an ideal member of that coalition.”
“That's exactly what it means. Let us wait until Tuesday's meeting,” Kilonzo said.
Amani National Congress Deputy Party Leader Ayub Savula, for his part, refuted claims of an OKA split.
Wiper and the ANC have ruled out working with ODM again, despite President Uhuru Kenyatta's call for Opposition leaders to band together to challenge Deputy President William Ruto in the 2022 election.
