DP Ruto scoffs at opposition alliance, NASA

By John Kioria

Deputy President William Ruto has accused the opposition of conspiring to create positions for themselves instead of laying clear their agenda for Kenyans if they take over government.

In reaction to the deal signed by NASA leaders Wednesday, Ruto dismissed the outfit as a political grouping with nothing to offer.

This even as the Jubilee party insisted that its nominations will be conducted by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries commission despite threats by the opposition to stop the process through the courts.

The launch of NASA has elicited mixed reactions among political leaders in the country with Deputy President William Ruto dismissing it as recycled outfit.

The Deputy President called on area residents to back development as that was what Jubilee was advancing.  Ruto accused the heads of NASA of having failed terribly despite holding senior positions in previous governments.

Meanwhile, the Jubilee Party has insisted that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission will conduct its primaries set for April.

Party Head of Secretariat Raphael Tuju and the acting Secretary General Veronica Maina have told off the opposition as being sensational after it threatened to move to court to challenge the decision by IEBC to help Jubilee conduct its primaries.

And while the party has been hit by major defections to other friendly parties, its leadership while downplaying the matter accused defectors of failing to believe in the ideals of the party.

A meeting held Tuesday and which was Chaired by Party Leader President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto agreed that the recruitment of party members resumes after it was halted to give room to voter registration.

And Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has dismissed claims that he has disowned a deal entered between his party and Muungano party led by Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana.

Musyoka had allegedly been quoted saying that Prof. Kibwana would be subjected to the nomination process in Wiper just like any other candidates vying for the same position in Makueni.

The former Vice President has however assured Kibwana of his support, even though no candidate has come forth to express interest in challenging Kibwana for the Makueni Wiper ticket.

And while confusion abounds on the fate of Muungano with Kibwana insisting that the party would continue to exist, the party has announced that it has since joined the National Super Alliance through Wiper.
