Kakamega Senator Cleopa Malala has said that the nation will get its ultimate political direction on Saturday.
This is as a heavy delegation of political leaders allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition boss Raila Odinga is set to converge in the county.
The meeting which will be held at Amalemba Grounds will bring together among others, COTU boss Francis Atwoli and former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth.
Malala noted that the function will be big and will give a national direction with regards to the approaching 2022 general elections.
“It will be a big meeting. We want to provide political direction to our people by inviting leaders from other areas and learning from them,” said Malala, as quoted by the Nation.
Others expected to attend the meeting include Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula.
This comes only a day after a section of ‘Kieleweke’ team members hinted at a possible coalition of Raila and Uhuru in the 2022 elections.
Others expected to grace the meeting are Nominated MP Maina Kamanda who leads the Kieleweke faction and his Cherangany counterpart Joshua Kuttuny.
This comes amid claims that the said Raila-Uhuru union might also bring on board the KANU party, though no formal information has been communicated to the public.
