Differences have eruopted in One Kenya Alliance OKA camp following struggle to name its flagbearer.
It has emerged that a technical team crafted to come up with a potential leader of the group has made things even worse with Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala warning that they will not take anything else if it is not Musalia Mudavadi.
“You saw in the meeting of OKA that the technical team of OKA stated that Kalonzo should be the flagbearer with Musalia as his deputy. Is that possible?” he posed.
He described his party leader as the potential heavyweight of the four principals and who cannot deputies Kalonzo Musyoka.
In his Saturday January 15 speech, Malala warned that their ANC Party will not be supporting Kalonzo Musyoka’s presidency because they feel Musalia is much stronger than Kalonzo in terns of popularity and experience.
“We want to tell them that a small river is the one that pours its water into a big river. The only formula that we shall accept in OKA is if Musalia will be the flag bearer,” Malala stated.
But in a sharp response, fire-spitting Kalonzo told off the Senator affirming that he will be on the ballot come what may. The Wiper Party boss insisted that he is not going to shelve his ambitions for anyone else.
This development, therefore, leaves OKA and its founders at a precarious corner when elections are just six months away.
