President Uhuru Kenyatta and KANU chairman Gideon Moi have gone a notch higher in speeding up the crafting the 2022 pre election pact with ODM party leader ahead of the polls.
This is after reports emerged of team of allies from the ruling party having been constituted to help in speeding up the modalities in formalizing the new Jubilee- ODM alliance.
Among those in the team includes, Jubilee Chairperson Nelson Dzuya, Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, Vice-Chair David Murathe, and National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya.
Others are Jubilee coalition joint secretary Aden Keynan, Senate Deputy Majority Leader Fatuma Dullo, and Majority Whip Emmanuel Wangwe.
Further reports indicate that the ruling Party’s Central Management Committee has been in strings of meetings from Wednesday and working under the Head of State’s instructions.
This is amid a further planned three-day retreat at the Naivasha nex week, from where the 8-member team will come up with a full report for the President.
The party is thereafter expected to call a full meeting of all the allied MPs to inform them on the intentions to fully merger with the ODM ahead of the 2022.
”Today (yesterday) we have had another meeting as NMC with the leadership from Parliament.
We discussed the issue about the coalition and we have agreed to have a retreat next week before we can have a parliamentary group meeting on the same,” Secretary General Raphael Tuju told a local publication on Thursday.
On the other hand, KANU’s Gideon Moi is also reported to be jogging up for the ODM, after it emerged that the recently formed One Kenya Alliance reportedly could not see the light of the day.
Senator Moi and his brigade are also working ways to join the Raila team ahead of the 2022 polls.
