Why Kalonzo and Gideon Walked Out Of Bomas

One Kenya Alliance (OKA) co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Gideon Moi have announced the end of their partnership with ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi over his links with the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

This comes after Deputy President William Ruto graced the National Delegates Convention (NDC) of Mudavadi's party at the Bomas of Kenya on Sunday, January 23.After the second in command walked in into the auditorium together with his entourage, Kalonzo and Moi dramatically walked out of the venue.

Moments after the walkout, OKA's spokesperson Fredrick Okango said that the alliance could not condone Mudavadi’s political gimmick, adding that they were moving to what he termed as higher grounds.

“OKA has today walked out of Mudavadi's 'earthquake' meeting. We are moving to higher grounds where Kenyans are safer. It is a wrap with nasty political games,” said Okango.

Okango explained that Kalonzo and Moi had honoured Mudavadi's invite as an OKA co-principal but they were not comfortable with the other friends he invited (UDA members).He added that the two veteran politicians walked out as they were uneasy and felt unsafe at the auditorium.

However, they wished Mudavadi the best with his newfound allies and congratulated him for being honoured by his party to go and look for more friends.

"We would like to wish Mudavadi the best of luck as he joins his other partners. There is no room for damages," Okango added.
