One Kenya Alliance is facing a tough Challenge of determining it's presidential candidate ahead of the presidential elections that will be held next.
This has been revealed by the Taifa Leo newspaper's Sunday publication which has disclosed that all the leaders are eyeing the presidential position in the alliance.
However, political analyst Dismas Mokua says that the biggest criterion that can be used to determine who among the four leaders of the One Kenya Alliance becomes their flagbearer is the number of votes each brings into the basket.
"For example, Mudavadi and Wetang'ula will have to convince their colleagues that if one of them is elected, he will be able to bring a total of more than 3 million votes from the former western region. The area includes Kakamega, Bungoma, Vihiga, Busia counties and a large part of Trans Nzoia County. This is in addition to the votes of people from the Luhya community living in other parts of the country, ”he says.
"And Mr Musyoka will need to provide assurance that he will win a total of 1.7 million votes in the Ukambani constituency and some from outside the constituency. But Senator Moi will have a tough job because most of the more than 3.5 million votes from the Rift Valley are in Dr Ruto's pocket, ”added Mr Mokua.
Some circles have told Taifa Jumapili that at a meeting held on Sunday last week at Mr Wetang’ula's home in Karen, the leaders of the One Kenya Alliance proposed the creation of a secretariat to oversee its operations.
The organization is also expected to strategize the creation of a unit that will oversee the nomination of union candidates from county to presidential level.
