Hours after today’s Serena convention that gave birth to the new one Kenya alliance, the Raila Odinga-led Orange Democratic Movement party has also announced a Mega alliance ahead of 2022.
speaking today while responding to the launch of the new One Kenya sacred alliance, ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna revealed that many details about the new alliance will be given after the BBI referendum.
“The post-BBI alliance ODM is working on will be fresh, strong, vibrant, and packed with men and women who can stand on their own and give birth to a new nation post- BBI,” he said.
This is after Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Gideon Moi (KANU) announced the formation of a One Kenya alliance bringing them together with the ruling Jubilee party.
Sifuna added that talks were underway at a very advanced stage of a bigger and better alliance that will shape the politics of the Country.
“Knowing that partnerships are an essential part of our politics, the Orange Democratic Movement is also working on a broader, better, and bolder alliance that will shake the country and shape the politics of the land for years to come,” Sifuna said.
“The new alliance will have younger and fresh blood with clear ideological positions on the issues of the day.”
He further downplayed the other NASA counterparts as a group of tribal groupings who joy rides and takes credit for others’ sweat.
“As a party, we are done with the fading breed of tribal politicians whose singular focus over the years has been on what they can extract from our sweat, and from the country.”
“We are focused on an Alliance that adds to the national discourse not what it gets, a coalition that adds not takes away from us.”
