Amani National Congress (ANC) party delegates and supporters have started arriving at Bomas of Kenya for the much-publicized national delegates convention where Musalia Mudavadi is expected to make his earthquake decision regarding the August 9 election.
It is expected that the ANC party boss will be launching his presidential bid ahead of the August 9 polls. Mudavadi told Kenyans to expect a major announcement which he claims will cause a political earthquake.
Mudavadi made the declaration last Sunday in Nyamira: “I have heard people say I am slowly moving out of OKA, just wait. There is a major announcement that will shake the country.”
Mudavadi who according to the programme is expected to make a grand entry to the venue at 10.30 am promised to make his political direction known during the conference.
“We don’t want to pre-empt what we have discussed as ANC’s leadership. We will give a major declaration that will be like an earthquake to the country’s political scene,” he said.
Party secretary-general Simon Gikuru has said they will officially launch Mudavadi’s presidential bid, as well as the party manifesto which is anchored on five pillars.
Gikuru also hinted at a possibility of the party walking out of the One Kenya Alliance.
Social media has been abuzz with reports that Mudavadi is set to launch a new alliance dubbed Kenya Kwanza, that would bring together NARC-K’s Martha Karua, Democratic Party’s Justin Muturi and former governor William Kabogo of Jitegemee Party.
There are speculations that Deputy President William Ruto who has been courting Mudavadi will attend the delegates conference. Muturi is also invited and his communication team confirmed his attendance.
