Kalonzo Musyoka(Wiper) Musalia Mudavadi(ANC) and Moses Wetangula(FORD-Kenya) have stamped their decision to kill NASA coalition while blaming Raila Odinga for the same.
In a press conference held on Tuesday, August 3, the three principals appended their signatures to officially kill NASA and shift their focus to the One Kenya Alliance.
They also appended their signatures to officially be members of the One Kenya Alliance(OKA) where the trio has partnered with KANU’s Gideon Moi.
Speaking after a joint Parliamentary Group meeting prior to the signing, the three former NASA principals said their premature exit was due to a trust deficit in Raila Odinga-led ODM.
The principals went ahead to make a case for their new alliance One Kenya Alliance that included KANU’s Gideon Moi.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we are reaching out to every person. We know that we need to for a political colossus, whereby victory will be seen clearly,” Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka remarked.
His ANC counterpart Musalia Mudavadi promised that OKA is going to make announcements on their 2022 plans days to come.
“One Kenya is not a closed shop, we shall engage other Kenyans. As we move forward, we shall then make announcements that will be meaningful to the people of Kenya,” Musalia Mudavadi said.
However, KANU Party leader Gideon Moi was notably missing as his partners assured Kenyans of the solidity of the One Kenya Alliance.
The official decision to kill NASA comes at a time when the One Kenya Alliance is staring at a possible union with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Both Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka have publicly stated that they do not mind working together once more.
“We pulled out of NASA, but that does not mean we will not work together. We will unite in the future,” Raila Odinga said during a burial ceremony on August 1.
On the other hand, Musalia Mudavadi is still skeptical about working with Raila Odinga due to trust issues that could be difficult to set aside.
“I do not know who Raila is going to approach individually as his party says, but there is a major sigh of relief among us because it has opened the window for us to freely engage with other Kenyans,” Mudavadi said.
