Gideon Moi is reportedly abandoning OKA in favor of his KANU party in order to pursue his presidential ambitions.
Kanu secretary general Nick Salat announced on Monday that the organization has decided to "forge its own path" and run a presidential candidate next year.
The announcement could signal the end of the One Kenya Alliance, a nebulous organization that was supposed to be the vehicle for Gideon and three other leaders: Wiper's Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC's Musalia Mudavadi, and Ford Kenya's Moses Wetang'ula.
“As Kanu, we are going to have our own presidential candidate in 2022, the name of our candidate is going to be unveiled before the end of the month,” Salat said.
He was referring to the fact that Gideon Moi will be their KANU presidential candidate, and that the party's organ should publicly clear him to avoid criticism from potential candidates.
