Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has dismissed attempts by Orange Democratic Movement(ODM) leader Raila Odinga and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to revive National Super Alliance(NASA).
This comes after Raila indicated that he is ready to work with Kalonzo for 2022 elections during the burial of former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile.
According to Mudavadi, there is a serious deficit of trust in Nasa.
“As leaders, we must not send conflicting messages,” he said.
Musalia said some Nasa members from different parties were removed from committees unfairly while others watched.
Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala backed Mudavadi’s assertions saying that Nasa was an abusive marriage and it is no longer politically viable.
“We are no longer interested in a marriage that is abusive. However, if things are to work out, then we have only one condition. Nasa will be a viable idea if we let Musalia Mudavadi be the flag-bearer,” Malala said.
Deputy President William Ruto also dismissed talks of the possible coalition between Raila and his counterpart Kalonzo.
Ruto, who spoke on Saturday, said if the unity is made with the sole purpose of beating him in the next polls then its priorities are misplaced.
According to the Ruto, political pacts should be made with agendas affecting the common mwananchi in mind.
“They must first have an agenda for Kenya, you cannot just unite merely because you want to defeat somebody,” he said.
Nasa storm started when Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta ended their rivalry with a handshake.
Both Uhuru and Raila are guarded about actual details of their agreement, often saying their 14-member taskforce team will unveil the contents at the most opportune time even, as their allies remain anxious over the deal.
However, Raila appears to have earned an elevated status in the country even without any official capacity, and has on some occasions represented the President abroad, signalling a new dawn in the country’s political dispensation.
In his coastal political tour, Mudavadi was accompanied by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, former Speaker Kenneth Marende and Hassan Dukicha from Tana River said Nasa is dead.
