Is the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) dead or heading for a fallout is the political puzzle after the National Delegates Conference (NDC) of the Amani National Congress ( CNA).
The alliance only remained with Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Gideon Moi (KANU) and Cyrus Jirongo (UDP) after Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya) struck a new political pact with vice -President William Ruto.
“Unfortunately we have to part ways because some of his friends are not our friends and we are not safe with them. It's time to move on, it's time to end bad political games,” said Okango, who is also general secretary of KANU.
The OKA spokesperson wished Mudavadi every success in his presidential ambition, a statement that leaves more to read about OKA unity.
“We would like to wish Hon. Mudavadi the best of luck as he joins his other partners. There is no room for damage,” Okango said.
Mudavadi, while joining Ruto, affirmed that Kenya is a democratic nation and they are free to form a coalition of friendship with any individual in the political arena.
“I would rather die standing than live on my knees. We will not allow anyone to choose friends for us. These shenanigans aim to sabotage free, fair and verifiable elections by crippling political parties. There are shameful moves to assault and restrict the political rights of Kenyans to associate and freely choose their leaders,” Mudavadi said.
The ANC party leader said he would not allow Kenyans to lose their freedom of choice through 'self-imposed' leaders.
"Some dark elements are busy trying to coerce, intimidate and impose hand-picked leaders. This is a perilous road that can only lead to civil unrest. The stability of this country stems from the legitimacy conferred by popular elections,” Mudavadi said.
Wetangula said they will work with Ruto and all like-minded parties to secure a massive victory in the August elections.
“I want us to move with precision. We welcome everyone, our basket is not full. We have opened a new chapter in the history of this country. We are together now,” he said.
