The announcement of the ANC National Delegates Congress meeting comes a month after the party's Secretary-General said that persuasions to have its party leader Musalia Mudavadi made the flag bearer of the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) ahead of the August general elections was an uphill task.
“We are trying to persuade our partners and show them the value that Mudavadi is bringing as flagbearer for OKA. It is not an easy task, it is quite tough, but negotiations are going on and we urge our supporters to be patient with us,” Gikuru said.
The SG further stated that ANC is committed to OKA adding that the party is keen on ensuring OKA survives this year's political storm.
"ANC is very committed to the One Kenya Alliance. We are working very hard to see to it that this alliance will survive this political season,” Gikuru said.
