Amani National Congress (ANC) Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi has dismissed claims of engaging with Deputy President William Ruto, for a political deal before the August general election.
In a presser, Musalia added that he will always inform his OKA principals on any political move while maintaining that remains focused on being on the ballot.
This comes as Ruto has publicly been seen wooing Mudavadi to join his political movement.
The DP has on different occasions dismissed political leaders under the One Kenya Alliance, claiming their main aim was to share power at the expense of addressing problems facing their constituents.
“I have not gotten any formal invitation. If it comes, we will deal with it. And when I meet with anyone, I will not make it a secret. I will make it public,” said Musalia.
This comes amid claims of splitting the coalition with the OKA Principals dominating news headlines.
“I want to urge the media to disregard speculations, misinformation and unfounded rumours going round that some of our members have shifted allegiance to other political formations. OKA continues to grow and attract others .
The ANC leader co-principal also downplayed media reports indicating that the presidential race in the coming elections was a two-horse race.
“I urge fellow Kenyans to exercise patience and sobriety. Matters of the leadership of this country are closest to my heart. I cannot allow myself and my political associates to gamble with the lives of Kenyans. I still affirm my Presidential bid,” said Mudavadi.
The OKA chiefs ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang’ula (Ford K), Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper and KANU’s Gideon Moi will on 18th of February 2022 hold a retreat where they will name their presidential candidate.
