There was a dramatic scene at Musalia Mudavadi’s Bomas Of Kenya meeting after the other One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals walked out just moments before the arrival of William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) allies.
Wiper leader Steven Kalonzo Musyoka and KANU chairman Gideon Moi were at Bomas in the early morning to witness the ANC party endorse Mudavadi as their 2022 flagbearer.
However, the three OKA principals vacated Bomas just before Ruto’s allies started streaming in at Bomas.

Leader allied to William Ruto who have so far arrived at Bomas include Kapseret member of parliament Oscar Sudi, Kirinyaga governor Ann waiguru, Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Kimna Ichungwa, Mr. Aden Duale, Kiminini MP didmus Barza and other leaders from the UDA.
Musalia Mudavadi is set to shake Kenya with one of the biggest earthquakes since independence if his words are anything to go by. Mr. Mudavadi termed his big day today as “a declaration that would cause an earthquake in the country.”
Over the weekend, the Amani national Congress leadership led by Mudavadi toured the venue just to confirm whether it was ready for the scheduled meeting. On his side, the ANC secretary general Simon Kamau urged Kenyans to brace themselves for the ANC convention that would be like no other
“Tomorrow we are expecting earthquake at Bomas of Kenya. It’s going to be the mother of all campaigns and all National Delegates Congress we have had in the country,” he said.
The secretary general further made it clear that their party would stand its ground when negotiating with other like minded parties to form political coalitions ahead of the 2022 general elections.
It seems the rumors that deputy president William Samoei has been working closely with the Amani National Congress (ANC) leader to completely destroy and bring down the One Kenya Alliance has finally come to pass after the deputy president and his entire brigade attended the Bomas event.
A few days ago, Musalia’s efforts to divide Luhyas and the One Kenya Alliance were at play when he skipped an important meeting in Naivasha which was meant to consider a report on its possible presidential candidate.
According to political analysts, Musalia Mudavadi may deny Raila Odinga votes in some Western regions, something which may lead to the possibility of a run-off after the general election.
Further, Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala recently made it clear that Musalia Mudavadi would not back down for any One Kenya Alliance principal. According to the senator, there was no way Kalonzo would support Mudavadi because it was for a small river to join the big river and not the other way round.
