BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,15TH JAN 2018-National Super Alliance (NASA ) are holding an important meeting aimed at clearing the air on perceived divisions among them a head of Odinga’s Oath taking on 30th January 2018. There has been complaints by Wiper Democratic Movement over the sharing of parliamentary leadership positions which Wiper feels shortchanged.
In the meeting being held at Odinga,s capital hill office,Mr Odinga and his co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula will seek to allay fears of what is seen as an emminent fallout betteen them whicjh could be detrimental the swearing in plans.
On Sunday, Wiper Party Secretary-General Peter Mathuki and Deputy Minority Whip in the National Assembly Chris Wamalwa described the allegations as total lies, saying Mr Miguna should not be taken seriously.
“Mr Musyoka is a co-principal in Nasa. How can someone leave his home, which he founded?. We cannot take Miguna seriously because he is not even a member of Nasa,” Mr Mathuki said.
“The rumours are far-fetched as the only thing our party leader has called for is national dialogue on electoral reforms. Mr Musyoka is a respected international diplomat and can lead dialogue in this country. If he has done it in other countries, why not in his own? asked Mr Mathuki.
Dr Wamalwa, while dismissing the allegations as cheap lies, stated that the Bungoma senator was in Nasa for the long haul: “Whoever is saying that Mr Wetang’ula is headed to Jubilee is daydreaming and such rumours should be treated as total lies.”
“As Ford-Kenya, we are in Nasa to stay and we are not going anywhere any time, Nasa is our bedrock,” said the Kiminini MP.
On Saturday, Mr Miguna said some principals were against Mr Odinga’s swearing-in and warned that anyone sabotaging the plans will face the wrath of Kenyans.
On Sunday, Mr Mudavadi confirmed the meeting but declined to reveal the agenda: “It is true we will have a meeting tomorrow (Monday).”
Mr Wetang’ula confirmed on Friday at a press conference that Nasa top leadership would meet to find a solution to some of the issues raised.
“We have a leadership structure and party leaders and we have agreed to sit down on Monday the four of us and talk. Our Wiper brothers will tell us what they are not happy about and we will resolve that because we must move forward as a coalition,” said Mr Wetang’ula.
