Kalonzo gives Nasa 7-day ultimatum

The Wiper Party now says that Nasa should name Musyoka the flag bearer within the stipulated timeline failure to which they will abandon the alliance.

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

National Assembly Minority leader and Musyoka's close ally Francis Nyenze accused the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) of manipulating talks aimed at selecting the alliance’s flagbearer from among Musyoka, Raila Odinga, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula and Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi.

Nyenze said the Wiper Party is prepared to go it alone as they maintained their now hard line stance of “No Kalonzo, No Nasa”.

“This is the last straw that will break the camel's back. If Kalonzo is not going to be the presidential candidate, Nasa will not exist anymore,” he told the Press at Parliament Buildings in Nairobi.

Wiper declaration

At a press conference on Tuesday, Wiper leaders led by Secretary General Hassan Omar demanded that the NASA principals now negotiate directly and deal with the matter once and for all.

He said the party failed to understand why there is anxiety when already Kalonzo Musyoka is the best candidate.

“We are the same party that demanded that NASA presidential candidate be named on Christmas day last year. That didn't happen," Omar said.
