Nairobi, KENYA: National Super Alliance coalition NASA, has threatened to isolate Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party from the coalition if they will not be included in the deal that led to president Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga having dialogue.

Addressing the media in Nairobi on Thursday, Mps led by Lugare Mp Ayub Savula, stated that, there is need of inclusivity of all the affiliated parties which calls for a legal time framework that outlines the issues to be addressed and how they will be addressed.

“We are the founders and we are against ODM belittling other parties. ODM can walk away but we will remain in Nasa to take over the presidency in 2022,” said Savula.

They also demanded that Top leadership of NASA convene a parliamentary group meeting to explain the details of the agreement and also the NASA principals to be included in the talks.

“In this initiative, we (Wiper, ANC and Ford Kenya) demand we have a structured engagement between NASA parties.” He said.

The leaders in unison added that, if ODM is willing to be married to Jubilee party, Wiper, ANC and Ford Kenya, will take up the role as the official opposition.

This comes even when the NASA principals have also asked to meet the President when he jets back into the country from Cuba where is on a three-day official tour.

Kalonzo Musyoka on Wednesday was quoted saying he and the other two principals, ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), had planned to meet Uhuru.

Savula was accompanied by, Makueni MP Dan Maanzo, Mavoko MP Patrick Makau, Butere MP Tindi Mwale among others.
