Kalonzo Musyoka has revealed some behind-the-scenes machinations that threatened to derail the signing of the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) and Azimio La Umoja deal. Kalonzo created a picture of recalcitrant Governor Charity Ngilu, claiming that she convinced Raila not to sign the arrangement.
“Our negotiations with Azimio took long because of Governor Ngilu, who had accompanied Odinga to the negotiations table. Kanu chairman Gideon Moi accompanied me. Ngilu didn’t want anything to do with the Azimio-OKA grand coalition. She kept telling Raila not to sign into the deal,” said Kalonzo while speaking at an event in Tseikuru Technical Training Institute in Kitui County on Sunday, March 13.

While the Wiper leader did not go into detail about the grandstanding, his statement on Saturday, March 12 at the Jacaranda Grounds portrayed a picture of someone who was dissatisfied with the entire process.” I had hoped that Raila would this time say Kalonzo Tosha. Still, then I’ll support you again given we have come a long way,” said Kalonzo.
Kalonzo was reacting to a story by the Nation that reported on the six-hour meeting at State House on Saturday, March 12, that had OKA principals, alongside Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta in attendance. The lengthy negotiations saw the delegates’ conference start at 3 pm instead of the planned 8 am, eliciting reactions from Azimio supporters.
