Days after the Bomas ‘earthquake’, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) and the Amani National Congress (ANC) parties are set to hold their first joint political rally on January 26 at the Nakuru show grounds.

The rally will also feature Ford-Kenya party as well as the party leader Moses Wetangula.

The parties have embraced the theme Uchumi kwanza (the economy first) which will be seeking to counter Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja.

Mudavadi’s campaign pledge has been economic recovery, while the deputy president's has also embodied economic recovery through his Bottom-Up campaigns.

UDA party Chairman Johnstone Muthama has stated that the DP and Mudavadi are not planning to have a joint ticket, saying the duo only came together for unity of the nation.

Mudavadi has since been kicked out of the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) after the OKA co-principals cited foul play at the Bomas conference where DP Ruto surprisingly turned up.

In their statement, OKA spokesman Fredrick Okango said they were seeking safer grounds as it was time to end dirty political games.

Unfortunately, we have to part ways since some of his friends are not our friends and we are unsafe with them. We are therefore moving to higher grounds where Kenyans are safer. It is time to move forward, it is time to end the nasty political games," read a section of the statement sent to media houses.

The Nakuru rally is expected to unveil UDA’s new entrants among them Starehe MP Charles Njagua (Jaguar), musician Loise Kim who is seeking to clinch the Kiambu women representative seat, ex-Kameme radio star Njogu wa Njoroge and comedian Jasper Muthomi also known as MC Jessy.
