Former National Super Alliance (NASA) principals have piled pressure on KANU chairman Gideon Moi to divorce Jubilee party and focus on One Kenya Alliance.
On Tuesday, August 3, a source intimated to the Daily Nation that the trio has given the KANU party time to divorce Jubilee party just like they did with NASA as they work to fully register the OKA with the Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu.
ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi said the law stipulates that no political party can belong to two or more coalitions at the same time.
“Once the One Kenya Alliance manifesto and other structure are in place, KANU would be required to join the alliance after ending its relationship with Jubilee,” he said.
However, KANU chairman Gideon Moi said the party will not be pushed to terminate its deal with Jubilee for the purpose of entering into new partnerships with the likes of ANC, Wiper, and Ford Kenya.
“If some people want to go their way, let them go, let’s meet at the ballot. This time round, nothing will come on a silver plate,” Moi declared.
KANU Secretary General Nick Salat amplified Moi’s remarks saying that the outfit will not be compelled to ink a partnership deal with OKA when it has an existing agreement with the Jubilee party.
Salat who was speaking at Kabarnet Gardens where the party hosted officials from the embattled Mt Kenya region early this week told Mudavadi and Kalonzo that they will only forge a working relationship if they agree to support the Jubilee party.
“Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka must respect the deal we have with Jubilee. We were instructed by the National Delegates Conference to support Jubilee. We are not turning back,” Salat said.
