A coalition of parties dubbed ‘Sacred Alliance’ leaders have cautioned rivals to ignore them at their own political peril.
Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Gideon Moi (Kanu) and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya) buoyed by the recent wins in Matungu, Kabuchai and Machakos Senatorial race, fired a warning shot that their unity can no longer be taken for granted.
“The just-concluded by-elections in various parts of the country and the victory which we celebrate here today is a clear indication that the country is keen on a new transformational agenda that not only unites this country but also all-inclusive,” said Mudavadi in a joint press statement.
The four are now promising to move forward with a purpose to unite the country through what they termed as a transformative agenda that seeks to create equal opportunities for all Kenyans.
The quadruple insist that they will provide the leadership that the country so much desires.
“This alliance is a breath of fresh air from the toxic and divisive politics this country has witnessed in the past,” said Mudavadi.
“We are taking these initial steps to bring the country together under the umbrella of One Kenya Alliance so that we can have common objectives and develop solutions to the issues facing Kenyans,” he said.
To launch its political activities as a unit, the group disclosed that it will spearhead the BBI agenda especially in persuading Kenyans to rally behind the initiative.
“We are forging solid partnerships with leaders with whom we share a vision for a peaceful, united, secure, and prosperous nation,” said Moi.
“This marks the beginning of our resolve to traverse the entire country and reach out to all Kenyans with the aim of rolling out our vision for a united and secure nation where every Kenyan has an equal opportunity to prosper,” they charged.
Deputy President William Ruto and opposition chief Raila Odinga have termed the alliance as ‘Cerelac coalition’ who cannot stand on their own but only being propped up as regional kingpins.
