Musalia Mudavadi’s party, ANC has delved into the reports of a looming alliance bringing together ODM party leader Raila Odinga and DP William Ruto exposing dirty tactics used by Raila.
According to the party chairman Kelvin Lunani, the ODM party leader is blackmailing the president using the BBI process to secure his endorsement ahead of 2022 elections.
Lunani maintained that Odinga’s recent political engagements in which his lieutenants are engaging DP Ruto for a possible alliance are all part of an elaborate plan aimed at forcing President Uhuru Kenyatta to work with Raila in 2022.
”Also self-evident is the party’s duplicitous support for the handshake. It’s apparent that ODM never believed in the BBI byproduct unless it serves their selfishness,” the ANC chair said in a statement.
According to Lunani, ODM and Raila Odinga do not believe in the BBI process, but it is rather a means to an end for them.
It all started when DP Ruto hinted at the possibility of working with Raila during a media interview.
This was followed by an unplanned political meeting between ODM Deputy Leader Wycliffe Oparanya and Deputy President William Ruto even as news emerged that a lot could be going on behind the scenes.
