Ms Beatrice Adagala, the woman representative of Vihiga, Mr Mudavadi's county of birth and Matungu MP Justus Murunga - both elected on ANC ticket - attended both the "Mulembe" meeting and the one convened by the DP in the morning.
The committee formed Friday will feature MPs Sakwa Bunyasi (Nambale), Alfred Agoi (Sabatia) for ANC, Janet Nangabo (Trans Nzoia) and Mr Washiali (representing Jubilee's Tangatanga wing) and Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini) and Ferdinand Wanyonyi (Kwanza) of Ford Kenya.
"The meeting brought Jubilee (those from Western allied to the DP), ANC and Ford Kenya together.
At the Karen meeting, which lasted about two hours, the DP reportedly gave the team his blessings to meet with Mr Mudavadi and his troops in what some of his handlers now say was a way of telling the world that the indefatigable politician from Sugoi is not without options in his march to the House on the Hill.
The meeting at Mr Mudavadi's Riverside Drive residence, where he hosted 23 MPs from Western Kenya, it is believed, was meant counter the Vihiga meeting.
