Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula has categorically said that One Kenya Alliance will produce the next president in 2022.
He stated that unity of purpose will see them defeat other political forces and have a formidable force that will shake the country.
Speaking during a burial ceremony in Sirisia constituency on Saturday, Wetang’ula stated that the Kenya one alliance is a force to reckon with.
“When you see creme de creme leaders coming together, understand that there is a common stand and we are determined to produce the next president,” said Weta.
The Alliance comprises of Kanu party leader Gideon Moi, ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka and Weta himself.
The team is fighting to outdo the deputy president William Ruto and ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
Wetang’ula threw his weight behind President Uhuru Kenyatta’s sentiments that it was time for other tribes to produce the next President beside the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities.
He pointed out that the head of state asked him and Mudavadi, “What is the essence of your numbers as Luhyas if you can’t produce the next President?” He posed.
He continued, “It is time you woke up and capitalized on your great numbers, if Luhyas can unite, they will definitely have a President in 2022,”.
Currently many politicians are forming alliances so that they can produce strong candidates that will fight in succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta has he plans to exit the house after successfully serving his two terms.
He came to power in 2003 and would have served his 10 years by 2022 before another general election is held to pick his successor.
