, BUSIA, Kenya, Aug 27 – Prime Minister Raila Odinga has challenged the G7 political grouping to make good their declaration to field a single presidential candidate during the 2012 general election.

He wants the proponents of the alliance to present the candidate they had settled on to face off with him at the ballot instead of issuing threats at public rallies about their intentions.

“This alliance is doomed to fail because it was mooted out of ethnic considerations rather than ideals and policy of any party,” he said.

Mr Odinga cautioned Kenyans to be wary of such parties arguing that the unity of Kenyans was paramount.

The Premier spoke in Busia County on Friday where he had joined mourners during the burial of Mama  Martina Tanga, the mother to  Regional Development Minister  Fred Gumo.

Also at the function, Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi told off opponent of the ODM party that their attempts to antagonize their mutual relation with Mr Odinga were futile.

“There is very strong effort and determination by our rivals to separate me from Raila” Mudavadi claimed.

G7 Alliance leaders – Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, Eldoret North MP William Ruto and Saboti MP Eugene Wamalwa have in the past vowed to remain together and maintained those hoping the alliance would disintegrate were in for a rude shock.

The leaders however remain divided on the mode to pick one of them to face Mr Odinga, whom they refer to as the common target.
