  • Deputy President William Ruto has arrived at Amani National Congress (ANC) leader's event held at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi's Lang'ata area.

    The DP made a grand entry at Mudavadi's event moments after his battalion, led by Garissa Township Member of Parliament Aden Duale, arrived.

    Other UDA allies at Bomas are Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, Lang'ata MP Nixon Korir and former Kibra parliamentary aspirant MacDonald Mariga.

    There are reports that Ruto and Mudavadi could seal a deal ahead of the August polls.

    This comes even as it emerged that the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga did not receive an invite to the highly-touted event.

    When the DP arrived at the event, OKA principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Gideon Moi as well as Presidential Aspirant Jimi Wanjigi stormed out of the event.

    Reports of a looming pre-election pact between Mudavadi and Ruto comes after the DP attempted to woo the OKA co-principal  to join forces with him ahead of the August General Election.

    In December 2021, Ruto went after Mudavadi and Ford-Kenya leader Moses Wetangula, who is also in attendance, noting that it would be easier for the three to create a formidable Presidential team.

    "They are telling Mudavadi and Wetang’ula to support Raila to remain relevant in politics; that narrative is outdated. I want to ask my brothers to join me so that together we can form the next government,” stated Ruto at the time.

    Also at the event are Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, Laikipia Woman Representative Cate Waruguru and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen. 

    Mudavadi had earlier promised that the Bomas announcement to the delegates would send tremors across the country's political landscape.

    Mudavadi and Ruto are angling for the Presidency to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta whose second and final term ends in August.
