Nairobi, KENYA:  Members of Parliament allied to Wiper have said that the move by former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar to resign as the party’s secretary general will not cause any vacuum in the party.

Speaking during a media briefing at parliamentary buildings led by Machakos legislator, also acting assistant secretary to the party Peter Mathuki, they  said that the deputy of that post will take his position in acting capacity; indicating that Omar took such move after failing to clinch Mombasa gubernatorial seat.

Mathuki said that Omar also failed to mobilize supporters of the party in the coast whereby the party did not garner as many seats as possible in various electoral posts.

They vowed to support NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka.

They warned that state officers including chiefs who will be engaging in campaigns and politics as a whole to desist doing so threatening to take them to court if they uphold such initiative.

“We shall now be watching carefully for any state officers involvement and any possible use of state resources in the campaigns and will move to court to seek disqualification of those who will break these laws.”Mathuki said

The legislators also blasted former Kitui senator David Musila for alleging that he is the Ukambani spokesman, insisting that his moves are misplaced in the eastern political arena.

This comes after NASA team unveiled their funding drive to help them enhance their campaign trail before the October 17 presidential polls.
