Jimmy Wanjigi to be chased away from NASA after new discovery

The decision to kick out the billionaire businessman was arrived at during a high level meeting.

Wanjigi and the campaign chief secretariat Willis Otieno are among those set to be kicked out of the coalition as NASA embarks on a strategic re-structuring to ensure a lean efficient team charged with organising a well-oiled campaign to ensure Raila Odinga becomes the country’s fifth president.

According to The Star, the decision to expel Wanjigi was reached at the weekend during a strategic meeting at the Coast where co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula all told Raila they did not want Wanjigi because “he did not help NASA as expected and instead caused the team problems,”.

The NASA leaders were blunt in their assessment saying that Wanjigi had promised so much and delivered almost nothing to the campaign.

It is reported the tycoon had promised to pay for a tallying center, poll agents and the production of media advertisements, in the run up to the August 8 polls but did not deliver as expected.

Close allies of Raila say that the businessman orchestrated the “perversion and watering-down” of the coalition’s original manifesto that focused on eliminating cartels and corruption and instead came up with an edited document that introduced unapproved mega-projects seeking huge tenders from a NASA government.

The raft of new changes to be adopted by the NASA team include the elevation of Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama to be heads of resource mobilisation and logistics while economist David Ndii while head the strategy team.
