Fresh details now suggest that President Uhuru Kenyatta may be succeeding in his purported efforts to consolidate the opposition coalition and have it confront the elections next year as a single front.
As a result, the President is believed to have hosted the four OKA principals and Raila at State House for talks, which have appeared for a while to be failing to produce the desired results.
However, KANU chairman Gideon Moi, one of the OKA chiefs, has disclosed that the five of them are extremely close and have been conversing, and that conversations on the possibility of jointly forming the next government are ongoing.
“We have Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Wetang'ula in OKA. But do not think Raila is too far away from us. We talk because he is so close. Our objective, though, is to raise Kanu to the grassroots level. Members will make the final choice on the next election,” he said in Diani.
