Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has given a sneak-peak into the mega alliance he is crafting, noting that it will be a reflection of the face of Kenya and mentioning some of the big names to expect in the outfit.
Odinga made the remarks on Sunday, 01 August 2021 when he met party delegates in Migori County
The ODM party leader maintained that NASA had served its purpose but the principals will once again team up to face DP Ruto who has emerged as the front-runner in the race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Hiyo haimanishi ya kwamba hatiwezi kuungana tena. Hiyo NASA kazi yake ilikwisha lakini huko mbele tutakuja pamoja. (That does not mean that we cannot reunite again. NASA served its purpose but in the future we will still work together.
Hi remarks come as the jostling for positions in the One Kenya Alliance is heating up with Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetangula, Kalonzo Musyoka and Gideon Moi all eyeing the seat.
Odinga is understood to be crafting an alliance that will e a true reflection of the face of Kenya and which many believe could sink DP Ruto’s 2022 bid.
He has in recent days been laying out his detailed plan for Kenya’s recovery and economic growth in a series of well-thought-out and detailed pieces that make DP Ruto’s bottom-up approach appear shallow.
Ruto on the other hand has been popularizing his Hustler narrative and the bottom-up approach that his allies can barely explain as was the case of Kandara MP Alice Wahome who made herself a laughing stock after blundering during an interview with a local TV station.
Inside DP Ruto’s own UDA and hustler movement, reports indicate that tension is mounting with a vicious fight for the running mate slot that could make or break his 2022 bid.
Two rival camps have emerged with one holding that the slot should be reserved for other regions and communities other that the Mount Kenya region that has enjoyed the benefit of holding the two top offices in the land more than any other community.
However, going with this could see the DP loose out on the vote-rich region.
