BY EURIDICE NZIOKA,NAIROBI,18TH APRIL 2017-The search for NASA presidential flag bearer has ignited a fresh row in the coalition, with ODM affirming that the recently leaked report designating Raila Odinga as the joint opposition flag bearer and Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate was factual.
ODM Secretary General Dr Agnes Zani confirmed that the NASA National Coordinating Committee had settled on the lineup, that also had Amani Congress Leader Musalia Mudavadi as the designated chief minister in the NASA government, with Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula as the National Assembly Speaker.

But Mudavadi’s party has disowned the proposed line up, accusing ODM of leaking vital NASA working documents and negotiating in bad faith.
She confirmed that the interim report that was leaked to the media was accurate and captured the presidential lineup as agreed on by members of the committee through consensus, where all the four parties were represented and their input is taken into consideration.
That line up had Odinga as the flag bearer, with Musyoka as his running mate.
