NASA to hold retreat over coalition’s leadership wrangles


Nairobi, KENYA: National super Alliance NASA leader Raila Odinga has said that together with his counterparts Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula they will go for a retreat and thereafter prepare a report and discuss issues affecting coalition within 14 days.

The principles had on Thursday afternoon met to address the discord between a section of NASA senators and Ford Kenya leaders Moses Wetangula that resulted in his removal as the Senate Minority leader.

In a press conference in Nairobi on Thursday, Odinga noted that they will be discussing the coalition’s leadership and the issues affecting them in general.

“The senators have expressed themselves frankly on this issue and Senator Wetang’ula also had an opportunity to respond to the issues at hand,” Raila said.

Odinga also revealed that they had a meeting at Okoa Kenya where Wetangula, Kalonzo and Nasa Senators resolved to find a solution to the existing impasse.

“The senators have also told us the issues that they are confronting in the Senate,” he added.

Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka also affirmed that the NASA was still a unified coalition despite the change of guard in the Senate minority leadership.

He further added that ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi did not attend the meeting because he was attending a board meeting.

“We are all together and we have restated the unity of NASA. I’m sure our respective MPs and MCAs stand appropriately guided,” he said.

Raila has been accused of betrayal by his co-principles for sidelining them in dialogue talks between him and President Kenyatta.
