OKA principals sign agreement with NARC-Kenya leader Martha Karua

One Kenya Alliance (OKA) has signed a coalition agreement with the NARC-Kenya party following the exit of Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC party and FORD-Kenya of Moses Wetangula.

The coalition now constitutes Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Gideon Moi (KANU), Cyrus Jirongo (UDP) and Martha Karua (NARC-Kenya).

In a joint statement read by Gideon Moi at the Kalonzo Musyoka Command Centre in Karen, Nairobi the leaders said the agreement will be officially deposited with the Registrar of Political Parties on February 28, 2022.

They further announced that they have lined up a series of public engagement activities in various parts of the country.

To formally incorporate all the constituent political parties into the One Kenya Alliance, we are glad to inform Kenyans that this morning, OKA Principals have signed a Deed of Assignment. This is an affirmation of our commitment to standing firm, together, and focused on securing and uplifting the lives of Kenyans,” reads the statement in part.

The OKA principals noted that the coalition is still open to partnerships with like-minded leaders, adding that 10 other political parties have expressed interest in joining the One Kenya Alliance.

As of today, 10 other political parties have expressed interest in joining the Coalition. This is because we believe that the diversity of our nation calls for heterogeneity of minds and ideas to effect impactful change. However, those not aligned with these values are likely to eventually fall by the wayside,” they added.

NARC-Kenya leader Martha Karua has been part of the Mount Kenya Unity Forum which brings together several party leaders from the vote-rich Central region.

She clarified that the Mount Kenya Unity Forum and OKA have been engaging on the possibility of working together ahead of the upcoming polls.
