A big blow to the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) as a section of MPS threatens to ditch the coalition over naming of a flagbearer.

In an interview with a local publication, The legislators said they will make an announcement on the day since it is becoming clear that the alliance will not have named the presidential candidate before their Christmas deadline.

“We are still waiting but we will be meeting on December 26 and then issue a statement,” Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala told the Star.

On November 13, Malala, Tindi Mwale (Butere) and Titus Khamala (Lurambi) while addressing a rally in Matunda area in Kakamega threatened to ditch the coalition for another outfit if their demands are not met.

““We are telling our colleagues at OKA that we want to know the presidential candidate of the coalition by December 25.

“If we won’t have known the presidential candidate who we know is Musalia Mudavadi, then we, as ANC, will decide to leave and form another alliance to deliver the presidency for Musalia Mudavadi in 2022,” said Butere MP Tindi Mwale.

Lurambi MP Titus Khamala echoed the remarks saying ANC is not ready to lose the position to another person.

“We, in ANC, do not want Musalia to be sent packing. We do not want the One Kenya Alliance to be the Coalition through which Musalia is sent packing indefinitely. We want to know our candidate immediately,” said Khamala.

On his part, Malala said the process should be expedited to give the coalition sufficient time to prepare for the polls scheduled for August 9, 2022.
