Ngilu who is a fierce critic of the deputy president, who was present in Mudavadi’s meeting, heaped praises on the two One Kenya Alliance (OKA) co-principals for walking away from what she termed as politics of deceit.
“Well done Kalonzo Musyoka and Gideon Moi for running away from the politics of deceit,” Ngilu said in a Facebook post.
Musali Mudavadi had on Sunday, January 23, convened an NDC meeting at the Bomas of Kenya where he was endorsed by the ANC party to vie for the top seat in the 2022 elections.
He had invited the One Kenya Alliance co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Gideon Moi, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula as well as Deputy President William Ruto.
But Musyoka and Moi who had settled walked out in protest even before it officially commenced after Deputy President William Ruto and his entourage entered the meeting.
Efforts by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula to convince the two to attend the meeting were futile.
Speaking to journalists moments later, OKA’s spokesperson Fredrick Okango said they walked out of the function since they were not comfortable with the other friends that Mudavadi had invited.
He said that the alliance could not condone Mudavadi’s political gimmick, adding that they were moving to what he termed as ‘higher grounds.’
“OKA has today walked out of Mudavadi’s ‘earthquake’ meeting. We are moving to higher grounds where Kenyans are safer. It is a wrap with nasty political games,” said Okango.
During the meeting, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang’ula announced that they had formed a political partnership with Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the 2022 General Election.
