Moses Kuria, a member of Parliament for Gatundu South, announced on Friday that the Chama Cha Kazi Party and twenty-one other political groups are in talks with Kenya Kwanza Alliance to form a coalition.
Kuria remarked that the grand alliance will bring prosperity and peace to the country.
He stated that further information about the coalition would be released soon.
“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,” Kuria stated.
So far, the Kenya Kwanza Alliance has pulled in Deputy President William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula’s FORD-Kenya, and Musalia Mudavadi’s Amani National Congress (ANC).
The group has already been touring Kenya, pitching their bottom-up economic approach and pushing Kenyans to back them in their campaign.
Kuria’s 2022 coalition building has been unpredictable, but he recently said that the Azimio La Umoja camp is just not a choice for him as the country prepares for elections on August 9.
Kuria stated he is always on the side that wins, during the funeral of former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s mother on Tuesday.
He met recently OKA executives and stated that they would have agreed to collaborate on the provision that they would not join Azimio.
