Musalia Mudavadi, the leader of the Amani National Congress (ANC) and a founding member of the new alliance, said yesterday that those promoting the "fake" narrative are politicians afraid of the alliance's growing clout, particularly after it won three by-elections in the Western and Ukambani regions.
Certain politicians, according to Mudavadi, who had assumed they would succeed Uhuru had resorted to propaganda after realizing their chances of occupying State House were dwindling by the day.
“If you look closely, you'll notice that those calling us a project are the same people who are actually collaborating with the government.They have a better relationship with the government than we do,” Mudavadi said.
The alliance is seen as positioning itself as a viable alternative to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto, while also gaining favor with President Kenyatta. Raila's allies have alleged in recent weeks that the State is plotting to weaken the former Prime Minister while supporting the four principals in the One Kenya Alliance.
In previous interviews, Ruto has dismissed the One Kenya Alliance and termed it as meaningless.He started that his only biggest rival is the former Prime Minister and ODM Party leader Raila Amollo Odinga.
“We should tell Kenyans how we want to improve their lives if they elect us and then leave it up to them to choose the next president,” Mudavadi said yesterday.
