As the nascent One Kenya Alliance begins to find footing with their first major retreat since their State House meeting about a week ago, battle lines appear to be slowly forming, as cases of what are likely to be perceived as friendly fire incidents begin to be witnessed.
Barely weeks after KANU party leader Gideon Moi appeared to open a war front with Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka while pushing for Raila Odinga to be included in the One Kenya Alliance, now Wiper’s Mutula Kilonzo has thrown a not so veiled barb at KANU’s secretary general, Nick Salat.
Speaking on KTN News’ lunchtime bulletin in an interview conducted by the station’s presenter, George Maringa, the Makueni Senator said that he had seen the KANU Secretary General Nick Salat all over television speaking what he termed as a lot of nonsense. Without going into much detail, Mutula Kilonzo warned that such behaviour would not be tolerated. He went ahead to advise that it would be better for Salat to first go through the issues that were being discussed by the One Kenya Alliance stakeholders, and familiarise himself with the policies at hand instead of speaking things which he was ignorant of.
Prior to yesterday’s OKA Naivasha meeting, ANC deputy party leader and Lugari MP Ayub Savula had said that the meeting is on and would discuss how to make the alliance stronger ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Savula dismissed talks of cracks in One Kenya Alliance on the choice of a presidential candidate saying their focus is to have the alliance up and running.
“There is a retreat in Naivasha from Monday through to Tuesday. We basically will discuss how to strengthen our coalition, we want to make it extremely strong and focus on strategies of winning,” Savula said on the phone.
“The issue of presidential candidate will come at a later stage.”
Tentative reports emanating from yesterday’s meeting indicated that a more comprehensive press release would be issued at the conclusion of Tuesday’s meeting.
