I never said NASA is dead, Wetangula retracts statement

Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula has made an about-turn over his remarks that NASA coalition is dead.

Instead, the Ford Kenya says the NASA coalition is facing a lot of challenges as parties are pursuing different ideologies.

Speaking in Bumala, Wetangula noted that his earlier remarks meant that the coalition had a difference of opinions but had not died, adding that he was quoted out of context.

Wetangula said he might go it alone in 2022 because he has been betrayed enough times.

Wetangula was recently quoted as saying that NASA is dead following the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga.

“NASA, in my opinion, is a moribund organization. NASA is history. And those who ignore history run the risk of repeating mistakes,” Wetang’ula was quoted as saying.

Wetangula said that its time Raila rallied behind the community the way it supported him in the past three polls.

But co-principal Musalia Mudavadi took on Wetangula saying Nasa was still intact despite the challenges it was facing.

He said the coalition agreement binds all member parties together.

NASA is a coalition of Raila Odinga’s ODM party, ANC and Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper Party.

“I formed Nasa and I agree that we have challenges, but for any of the factions forming Nasa to pull out we must go back to the coalition agreement where all the parties involved must officially write a letter to the registrar of parties stating that it has pulled out, something that has not been done by any of the coalition partners,” Musalia stated.

His remarks echoed those of ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna who, on Tuesday, told Wetangula that “coalitions are not dissolved at funerals and village Barazas”.
