Yesterday's meeting between OKA principles and Mt. Kenya Foundation is reflective of the region's shift of focus ahead of the 2022 general elections in Kenya, and it does feed to a series of events aimed at isolating deputy president William Ruto further.Musalia, Wetang'ula, Moi and Kalonzo met with the Mt. Kenya Foundation at Safari Park Hotel where the four OKA principals claimed that they have come up with comprehensive reforms that will lead to sustained economic expansion, social development and political stability.However, it remains to be seen how they will tackle poverty, inequality, climate change and the country's vulnerability to internal and external debts.
This time round, Mount Kenya Foundation (MKF) seems to be directing its efforts to make Mr. Odinga 5th president. The group was formed in 2007, and its members comprise mainly, the affluential business people from Mt. Kenya.
The group is known to have influenced president Uhuru Kenyatta's election, and have always played a central role in presidential elections. Some notable members of the group include Michael Waweru, Mutuma Nkanata, Titus Ibui, Peter Munga and Dennis Waweru.
Speaking at the meeting, prolific businesses man Peter Munga, who currently chairs the group said that he now embraces the multi-billionair tag that is often used by the Ruto's camp to refer to MKF.Munga holds important roles as the founding shareholder of the Equity Bank and a host of education ventures. "It is good to have such big names as it means people may be praying for you to succeed", Munga exclaimed.
