In a typical Kenyan move, a loose coalition of political leaders have clustered to form an alliance as they eye the next general elections that are over a year away. The over-political nature of Kenyan way of life has normalized politicking between election cycles.

Former NASA Coalition leaders Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper, Musalia Mudavadi of ANC and Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya have partnered with KANU's Gideon Moi in what is morphing into an anti-Ruto camp.

The One Kenya Alliance (OKA) as they call themselves have however managed to beat the Ruto allied party UDA in three back to back by-elections held in the month of March 2021. It was a hammer blow to the aspirations of the start up party associated with DP Ruto.

Despite these key wins, the One Kenya Alliance may yet come to fail before the 2022 General elections. The biggest conundrum for the four gentlemen is of course who will be the flag bearer.

All four, Mudavadi, Kalonzo, Moi and Wetangula, have announced their intentions to vie for the presidency in 2022. Western Kenya, from where Mudavadi and Wetangula hail from is intent on having a man on the Presidential ballot paper.

Kalonzo Musyoka has played second fiddle to Raila Odinga in the past 2 Presidential elections and may not wish to be a running mate once again. Gideon Moi on the other hand carries the burden of his name and may wish to occupy the office his father held for 24 years.

The decision on who is the flag bearer for this fledgling alliance may be the Achilles heel that ends up breaking it. It has been said before that one day is a long time in politics and this may prove true for the One Kenya Alliance that was formed over a year before the next general elections.
