Cracks have emerged in the National Super Alliance (NASA) after it was discovered that Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka was planning to give direct nomination to some governors.

Reports indicate that Kalonzo held a private meeting with Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana, who he was planning to give a direct ticket for the Makueni Gubernatorial seat.

A section of leaders have warned that they will not accept issuance of direct tickets in the Wiper Party led by Senator Johnson Mutham, who has previously clashed with Kalonzo.

Speaking during a rally at the Mulu Mutisya Gardens in Machakos Town, Muthama announced that all wiper Party aspirants should compete fairly in the party nominations.

The senator warned that issuing direct nomination tickets to some leaders in NASA would causes chaos and split members of the party.

His sentiments were echoed by Kitui County Senator and Wiper Chairman, David Musila, who said that Wiper should not issue direct nominations especially in Ukambani region.

Speculations have been rife that Mr Kibwana will be issued with a direct ticket after he signed a coalition agreement with Kalonzo and agreed to support his presidential bid in NASA.

Meanwhile, the issue of joint nominations is threatening to break NASA apart with some leaders opposed to the idea.

The former Vice President has maintained that candidates of ODM, Wiper, ANC and Ford Kenya should be allowed to face each other.

ODM leader Raila Odinga promised that the joint nominations matter was a minor issue and would be sorted out immediately.
