Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has revealed that his Chama Cha Kazi (CCK) party is in talks to join the Kenya Kwanza Alliance (KKA) led by Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the August 9 general election.
According to Kuria, the grand coalition will be made up of 21 other political parties.
“This is to inform Kenyans that Chama cha Kazi Party and 21 other political parties are in early talks with the Kenya Kwanza Alliance that will lead to a very broad-based grand coalition,” stated Kuria.
Early this week, Kuria had said he is ready to join the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) on condition that the outfit does not join the Azimio La Umoja coalition.
“I might not know where I am, but I know where I can’t be in this life, I’m the one to make the decision about my direction, you’ll never see me in Azimio…and even if I die, don’t take me to Azimio (Kuna kitu ninajua, pengine sijui pahali niliko lakini najua pahali siko. Unajua kwa hii uhai mimi ndio ninajiamulia, hakuna siku utanipata kwa Azimio…lakini hata nikikufa, msinipeleke kwa Azimio),” Kuria said.
Kuria noted his differences with the Azimio team are only ideological and not personal, hence should not be mistaken for enmity with anyone.
Kenya Kwanza Alliance so far brings together United Democratic Alliance (UDA) led by Deputy President William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi’s Amani National Congress (ANC) and FORD-Kenya led by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula.
