OKA launch is on the way, their presidential flag bearer to be announced soon

The One Kenya Alliance could soon unveil its 2022 presidential flagbearer after it emerged the principals plan to launch the coalition in mid-October.

“We had given them a timeline of 90 days from the first time they met. That means by mid-October, we shall be launching the coalition,” Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr, who is a member of the technical team said.

The launch will set the political stage for gruesome campaigns ahead of the general election.

The coalition will bring together seasoned politicians who, for a decade now, have been in opposition.

The team was expected to present the documents to the principals – Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Moses Wetang'ula (Ford Kenya), Gideon Moi (Kanu) and officials early this month in Naivasha.
