Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has downplayed claims that One Kenya Alliance (OKA) was formed based on the positions proposed in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Referendum Bill.

Speaking on Citizen TV on Tuesday, Musalia said OKA was going to abide by the positions provided in the Constitution.

"If someone wants to be supported by OKA, they must be within our framework. If you are not, that is a different ballgame. There is a process and consensus building is one of the processes we will use to pick our candidate," he said.

Musalia further said OKA will become a reality in the coming days saying all the principals in the coalition are free to market their presidential bids.

"As of now, there is no harm in Musalia, Kalonzo or Moi promoting their political parties in different regions," he stated.

He, however, said the coalition's technical team was working behind the scenes and soon, they will take their agreement in OKA to the next level.

"The conversation on OKA is ongoing. We have a technical team working on a well-crafted process of us being able to append our signatures on a coalition document.

"OKA is not a closed shop and we want to accommodate other Kenyans who would want to join us," he added.
