Bad News For Those Awaiting 'Cerelac' Alliance Collapse as Details Emerge on What's Been Happening

The One Kenya Alliance are keen on sticking together as they plan how they will approach Kenyans for their support during the 2022 elections, the four leaders, all leaders of political parties, have suggested.

The alliance brings together ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), Gideon Moi of KANU and Kalonzo Musyoka of the Wiper Democratic Movement.

They on Tuesday held a meeting, one they said was aimed at receiving progress update from a team put together to work on formalizing the alliance, revealing that they have been working on sticking together.

This communication comes as a blow to those who have been anticipating their breakup and a collapse of their union, on grounds that they will disagree, given that each is eyeing the presidency.

Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi told the Star that it will even be harder for the alliance to remain standing should the appellate court uphold the annulment of the BBI process.

"The biggest losers if the BBI bill dies would be the One Kenya principals who were angling on the additional slots at the national level to build their coalition and share power," he said.

The alliance is largely seen as a making of President Uhuru Kenyatta, which is made up of politicians angling for the President's 2022 endorsement.

Its critics have branded the four political weaklings who cannot stand on their own feet and are looking for help, nicknaming their coalition the Cerelac Alliance and The Niachie Coalition.
