2022 General Elections: ANC Set To Join Deputy President William Ruto's UDA- Opinion

As the August 9th general elections fast approach, candidates eyeing to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta after his term ends are now busy rebuilding and refurbishing themselves. Ever hopeful making sure everything is in place, intact and ready for the August elections. This begs for a winning formula and hard work from all of them. Lately, the One Kenya Alliance has been uncertain with its future as sharp divisions are imminent.

The Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi and his allies have for the last two weeks been causing disquiet in the coalition. Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala, a close supporter of ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi has recently shown resilience and political maturity as he is seemingly pushing for an alliance between the Amani National Congress and Deputy President William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance ahead of the elections.

Senator Malala has strongly pushed to see the two parties unite and for a mega coalition. 

Additionally, Malala seems to be favoured by the Deputy President William Ruto's allies to capture the Kakamega governor's seat in the August elections. This will however come with a price he will have to convince his party Musalia Mudavadi to join forces with DP Ruto's United Democratic Alliance.

Although the senator openly makes the irreducible minimums on the faction that would welcome them, he seems to be giving the Deputy President a greenlight. 

Jus a few days ago, in an exclusive interview with a local daily, Malala stated that they will work with Raila if the former premier endorses Musalia for the presidency and willingly step down for Mudavadi. However he served delight to the country's second in command as he said they will join him if Mudavadi is offered a lucrative position in Ruto's government that will guarantee him the presidency in the long run.
