“We Have No Idea of what we signed at KICC”, Kalonzo finally Speaks.
Kalonzo finally speaks on joining Azimio vehicle. In what seems to be the grand political coalition in the country, termed as a three-legged stool comprising of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), Jubilee, and the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) coalition, the Kenyan political scene is taking a different course ahead of the August.
Questions are however looming with the entrance of the OKA in the Azimio matrimony, alleging that they have no idea of what they signed in the agreement that was officiated at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre.
The game of numbers, twists, and turns is taking shape ahead of the August polls with old lovers reconciling to make a formidable family. Azimio la Umoja has quite the house with the Jubilee Party, the One Kenya Alliance, and other individual parties.
The bone of contention however in the political outfit is the entry of former vice President Kalonzo Muskoka and whether he brought in the Wiper party or the One Kenya Alliance coalition as a whole.
Raila Odinga’s campaign Spokesperson Professor Makau Mutua has clarified that One Kenya Alliance did join the Azimio la Umoja movement but only individual political parties signed the coalition agreement. Kalonzo Musyoka has however stated that most of the parties were not aware of what they signed.
Holes are now being poked on the transparency of the process of creating the grand coalition with the insights of Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua seeming to be playing out during the signing of the OKA deal on Friday.
All these are unfolding after the grand Jacaranda meeting that endorsed ODM Chief Raila Odinga’s Presidential Bid. The meeting saw the attendance of president Uhuru Kenyatta who drummed up support for the former premier, noting that he was the best person to take over after him.
ODM party leader Raila Odinga has left the country for a one-week trip to the United Kingdom (UK). The latest political formation has left the political scene shrouded in uncertainty with hopes that dust will soon settle and everything is made clear.
Kalonzo Musyoka now appears to be in a dilemma, torn between whether to continue backing Odinga or chart his way towards another political pathway.
