The Wiper Party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, is now demanding a public apology from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary General, Dr Agnes Zani, over her remarks that the united opposition outfit – the National Super Alliance (NASA) had already reached a deal on the presidential flag-bearer.
According to Zani, the NASA National Coordinating Committee (NCC) had reached on Raila Odinga as the presidential flag-bearer with Kalonzo Musyoka as the running mate.
Zani had also intimated that Musalia Mudavadi would become the Chief Minister should NASA clinch the presidency while Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetangula, would be appointed the Speaker of the National Assembly.
Zani’s sentiments have not gone well with the opposition leaders with Kalonzo now demanding that she withdraws them and apologizes publicly.
Kalonzo has denied claims by Zani that the four united opposition outfit principals had already chosen the presidential ticket for the August poll following recommendations from their technical committee.
Speaking after meeting Nairobi Wiper aspirants, he accused a section of NASA of being hell-bent on causing internal divisions.
His position has been backed by NASA co-principal and ANC party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, who says anyone claiming there’s a NASA lineup is making a personal opinion, as none has been agreed upon.
Kalonzo similarly adds Wiper will establish NASA strongholds before agreeing to conduct joint nominations within NASA.
