There is Political tension in the newly One Kenya Alliance that is made up of Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, Gideon Moi, and Moses Wetangula.
The four principals are no longer on the same page in matters 2022 since the collapse of the BBI bill.
In forming the One Kenya Alliance, the principals were targeting the executive positions that would be created after the success of the BBI bill, which seeks to amend the 2010 Kenya constitution.
Now that the BBI proces has stalled, Kivumbi.co.ke understands the One Kenya Alliance is headed for breakup.
According to KANU secretary-general Nick Salat, the alliance was being driven by the BBI, and without it, the four principals might be parting ways.
“In one way or another, all of us support BBI. This is because without BBI the Okoa Kenya Alliance cannot exist,” said Nick Salat.
Other than the BBI collapse, Gideon Moi’s closeness to ODM leader Raila Odinga has also weakened the alliance.
His co-principals are threatened by their relationship, as they think Gideon might support Raila Odinga in 2022.
On June 1, Gideon Moi paid a visit to Raila Odinga at his Siaya home. Before then, Gideon had visited the ODM leader at his Karen residence in April 13, just after he recovered from a COVID-19 attack.
In other occasions, the KANU Party Leader has met Raila political allies including Francis Atwoli, David Murathe and Peter Kenneth.
Speaking to the Daily Nation, KANU secretary-general Nick Salat downplayed the concerns of fellow OKA principles.
“Raila and Moi are friends, and we can visit Baba (Raila Odinga) anytime we get a chance,” said Nick Salat.
The One Kenya Alliance has not declared their stand on whom will fly the presidential mantle in 2022. This has led to further division among the principles
According to ANC members, Musalia Mudavadi ought to fly the OKA ticket since he has been in the political game longer than Gideon Moi.
“We know that the presidential candidate for OKA is Musalia Mudavadi. Gideon Moi does not have enough political influence even in Rift Valley. And because Wetangula supports Mudavadi, Kalonzo will also have to,” said Lugari MP Ayub Savula.
