Kenyans will have to wait a little bit longer to know who will be the Kenya Kwanza alliance presidential candidate for the August 9th elections.
Addressing the media after a church service at St Faith Parish, ACK in Rongai, the party leader  Musalia Mudavadi said the naming of the candidate is work in progress.

The alliance brings together Deputy President William Ruto outfit UDA, Moses Wetangula’s Ford Kenya and ANC.
Mudavdi said the alliance’s task at the moment is to unite Kenyans and ensure the country is peaceful.
“Yes, ultimately we shall name the candidate who will fly the Kenya Kwanza flag in the elections. However, at the moment our priority is to unite Kenyans and ensure we have a peaceful election,” he said.
Mudavadi said his decision to team up with Ruto was well thought of and followed wide consultations within his party.
He noted that Ruto’s ideals for the Kenyan economy are in tandem with his ANC party of reviving the already bleeding economy.
The party is going to the August 9th elections with a clarion call of reviving the economy through the implementation of various litigations including renegotiating and rescheduling of the country’s public debts.
Under the Uchumi Bora, Pesa Mfukoni call, ANC has synchronised its call with that of UDA of bottom-up economics where the party will seek to empower the most affected Kenyans through interest-free loans and grants to jump-start businesses.
Mudavadi maintained that joining Ruto was after the realisation that the One Kenya Alliance where he was a co-principal with Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper party, Gideon Moi of KANU and Wetangula was a government project meant to stall his ambitions.
“OKA was a project just as Azimio movement that has a government project. The State projects will ultimately stall and I ask Kenyans to reject State -sponsored projects,” he said.
Mudavadi and Ruto together with Wetang’ula have formed a working partnership that has given birth to the Kenya Kwanza alliance.
The three principals have in the past week held joint rallies in Nakuru, Bungoma, Kakamega and Kirinyaga counties.
