Kalonzo, Mudavadi call for the registration of NASA as a party

Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka, NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi now want the National Super Alliance registered as a political party.

Speaking at a thanksgiving ceremony for the Machakos County Women Representative, Joyce Kamene, Kalonzo said the individual parties in NASA should however not dissolve once NASA is registered.

This amid differing political views after President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga agreed to put their political differences aside and unite the Country.

Kalonzo said the decision to register NASA as a party will perhaps consolidate their ground after the Raila-Uhuru handshake.

And while he wants the registration done without dissolving their respective parties, Kalonzo maintains he will be on the ballot in 2022.

His bid receiving a major boost after it was endorsed by Ford Kenya MP Chris Wamalwa as well as a host of Wiper party Members of Parliament.

Kalonzo, ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi as well as Ford Kenya party leader and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula have cried foul over the unity between President Uhuru and Raila saying they were not consulted as a coalition.

The three are on record saying they will try and meet the President just like Raila did saying dialogue between the opposition and the Jubilee Government must be done in a proper manner.

Wetangula political career is however at a crossroads after he was ejected as Senate Minority leader and replaced by Siaya Senator James Orengo.

Attempts by Raila to intervene seem not to have born any fruits and it appears as if Wetangula’s fate is sealed.

Not one to go down quietly, the Bungoma Senator has threatened to revenge against Raila and his ODM party whose senators orchestrated the move to replace him.

Speaking in Bungoma Wetangula however said that he will not take back the position even if it’s given back to him saying his removal was the ultimate sign of betrayal.

Kalonzo insists the position belongs to Wetangula saying the coalition had negotiated on the same prior to the election and such a decision should be respected.

He said he will try to bring together the warring parties to agree on the way forward saying Wetangula’s removal was not warranted.

The three leaders have called for inclusion in the ongoing talks for unity saying all parties should be consulted if the Country is to heal.

On the same breath Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku says while the unity pact between President Uhuru and Raila Odinga is a step in the right direction, it should not however disrupt Jubilee’s succession plan in the next poll.
