KANU, Wiper, Ford-Kenya and ANC parties have unveiled a new political formation dubbed the One Kenya Alliance.
The alliance which brings together KANU National Chairman Gideon Moi, ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula aims at delivering a transformative agenda for the country.
Addressing the media earlier today, the leaders termed the state of the country’s current politics as toxic.
Speaking on behalf of the alliance, Wetangula said they seek to present Kenyans with fresh political alternatives.
He said, “Today, we mark the beginning of a journey with a clear purpose to unite this country through a transformative agenda that seeks to create equal opportunities for all Kenyans. This alliance is a breath of fresh air from the toxic and divisive politics this country has witnessed in the recent past.”
He added, “The election of Senator Kavindu has elevated the Senate of Kenya to achieve the two-thirds gender parity rule. Therefore, we’re proud that Senator Kavindu is a product of this alliance, which strongly believes in supporting and strengthening women’s participation in elective politics and governance in our country.”
On his part, ANC leader Mudavadi, said they are working collectively to help Kenyans during the Covid pandemic and hard economic times.
Mudavadi said, “We want Kenyans to have hope. During these hard economic times, it is important that we rally together as Kenyans so that going into the future, we can work hand in hand collectively to deal with the challenges that we face.”
The leaders also said they stand in solidarity with the Jubilee party in the upcoming by-elections.
KANU Party leader Gideon Moi said the Alliance will pull out their candidates in the by-elections to allow Jubilee win.
