ANC leader Mudavadi has insisted that it is hard to work with Raila Odinga again even as the former prime minister eyes a truce with the recently formed One Kenya Alliance (OKA) partners.
Mudavadi said this barely days after Raila Odinga was offered a chance to join the OKA ahead of the crucial 2022 General Election.
According to the ANC leader, the mistrust between ODM leader Raila Odinga and his former National Super Alliance (NASA) allies is too wide and could be difficult to bridge.
He said while anything can happen in politics, he also pointed an accusing finger at a section of ODM party members who claimed that the ANC leader was the stumbling block against reviving the once most powerful alliance NASA.
“I do not know who Raila is going to approach individually as his party says, but there is a major sigh of relief among us because it has opened the window for us to freely engage with other Kenyans,” Mudavadi said.
Mudavadi lauded Raila Odinga party’s decision to exit the NASA coalition alliance saying it has given the OKA freedom to pursue its goals of forming new formations without hindrance from any quarters.
“It is a relief for us because the One Kenya Alliance can now pursue its goals of forming new formations without hindrance from any quarters,” he said.
It is understood that despite the disbandment of the NASA coalition, Raila Odinga continues to eye Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Wetangula as likely 2022 elections partners.
As a prospect in the formation of a ‘Tsunami’ to take down Deputy President William Ruto in the 2022 Presidential race, Odinga is also eying KANU chairman Gideon Moi who is a member of the OKA.
“We pulled out of NASA, but that does not mean we will not work together. We will unite in the future,” Raila Odinga said.
