Uhuru Leaves NASA Stranded after Surprise Move

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday pulled a surprise move after...

The NASA coalition on Tuesday staged a dramatic walkout from a private meeting that was expected to be graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy President William Ruto.

The meeting was supposed to take place at Anniversary Towers and was organized by the IEBC to resolve some of the issues surrounding the repeat polls slotted for October 17.

Odinga’s team was first to arrive at the critical meeting at around 11am and included NASA principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, among other elected leaders. However, they were surprised to find out that Jubilee did not send its representatives.

"We honored the invitation from the chair of IEBC . We have not seen the presidential candidate from Jubilee or his running mate," Mudavadi told the press.

It was not initially clear if the Jubilee team would eventually send representatives to  the consultative meeting given that President Kenyatta and Majority Leader Aden Duale were occupied at Parliament for the President’s inaugural speech.

However, Ruto’s security detail was spotted at IEBC headquarters suggesting that the Jubilee Deputy Presidential candidate may eventually attend the much anticipated meeting.

IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati had on Monday indicated that the two opposing teams would be briefed on the steps taken to hold a credible election on October 17.
