The One Kenya Alliance principals have not yet unveiled their preferred candidate prompting fresh turmoil in the alliance.
Amani National Congress leaders have threatened to walk out of the alliance if their party leader is not picked as the flag bearer.
ANC legislators led by Senator Cleophas Malala demanded that the coalition must name its flag bearer before Christmas Day failure to which they will leave for another coalition ahead of next year’s polls.
“We’re giving OKA up to 25 December to declare Mudavadi as the presidential candidate” Malala said.
Malala also urged the coalition to fasten the process in naming the presidential candidate saying that Kenyans are eagerly waiting.
The leaders warned that OKA stood to lose if the alliance decided to support Raila’s presidential bid.
Downplaying the move to abandon OKA, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi promised to roll out countrywide campaigns to bolster his presidential bid as the ANC party prepares to hold its National Delegates Conference early next year.
Speaking yesterday at the Quakers Friends International Centre on Ngong Road, Nairobi, Mudavadi maintained that no Kenyan should be coerced to support any candidate and that instead, democracy must prevail by people being allowed to decide on the ballot who their leaders should be come August 2022.
He said Kenyans needed to be careful, as empty promises, including one on social welfare programmes; bribery and handouts had become the rampart in campaigns.
“As we approach the next General Election, we must give this country what is good. We must not be convinced by handouts, bribery or by sweet words from politicians who promise you things that are practically impossible,” he said.
