President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged members of the National Super Alliance (NASA) to re- unite and strengthen their coalition ahead of the 2022 General Election.
In a meeting with Ukambani leaders at State House, Uhuru said (ODM)Raila Odinga, (Wiper) Kalonzo Musyoka, (ANC)Musalia Mudavadi and (FORD Kenya) Moses Wetangula’s unity will put the country in safe hands come 2022.
According to Kitui Senator Enock Wambua, the Head of State said; “the success of any of them will have to be collective.”
He told them that uniting with other political players like Raila Odinga has enabled him to deliver his big four agenda more effectively.
“Working in conjunction with my colleagues, I have been able to focus on the development agenda, and not the political agenda. Rather than engaging in endless fights, let’s work together. If we do that, we will be able to be a truly middle-income country by 2030,” Uhuru said.
Uhuru’s call for revival of NASA coalition comes just after Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu urged Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka to work together late last week.
Speaking during the burial of former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile, Ngilu argued that failure by Raila and Kalonzo to unite will give William Ruto the 2022 presidency.
Raila Odinga heeded to the calls saying he and Kalonzo Musyoka can still work together.
“Kalonzo and I will not go separate ways. We will work together so that we rescue Kenya from thieves’ capture,” he said.
However, days later, Musalia Mudavadi who was also a member of NASA said he is not ready to unite with his co-principals due to trust issues.
“I want Kenyans to know that there is lack of trust in the NASA coalition that can not be rectified. We want to move on. We formed NASA but truth be told, there is no trust, so if you want to take us back there and you can not agree that there are lies, how do you want us to trust you when you say you want a coalition?” Mudavadi argued.
