The Amani National Congress (ANC) party is threatening to abandon One Kenya Alliance (OKA) if party leader Musalia Mudavadi is not declared the alliance Presidential candidate.
Addressing journalists outside the Bomas of Kenya on Saturday 22 afternoon ahead of the party’s national delegates conference scheduled for today Sunday 23, ANC secretary-general Simon Gikuru said that the alliance will only make sense if Mudavadi is given the Presidential ticket.
Gikuru said a major announcement will be made Sunday 23 as earlier promised by the party leader.
An earlier notice of the meeting had indicated that delegates will ratify specific decisions of the ANC Council, including amendments to the Party Constitution and the nomination of Mudavadi as the Party’s Presidential Candidate in the upcoming elections.
Preparations for the mega-event trending under the hashtag #TukutaneBomas are complete.
The fate of OKA which brings together Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Gideon Moi of KANU, and Ford-Kenya’s Moses Wetangula remains unknown after the four principals failed to agree on a flag bearer.
The alliance had been touted as the third force that will face off with ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto.
However, the four who had retreated to strategise disagreed on the criteria to use in picking who will the presidential candidate.
Reports indicated a technical committee tasked with drafting a formula is said to have come up with a report placing Kalonzo at the top while Mudavadi as the running mate.
Musalia and Kalonzo have publicly declared they will gun for the top seat.
