However, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi has been a hardliner and has repeatedly ruled out the possibility of working together with Raila or rather supporting his presidential bid.
The team has reportedly hatched a new strategy, to have a formidable force against Ruto, they have resorted to luring Gedion Moi and Kalonzo Musyoka to join forces with Raila, according to reliable sources, the foundation's members and president Uhuru Kenyatta's confidants have been secretly holding talks with Raila, Kalonzo, and Gedion after Mudavadi proved to be stubborn.
