Kalonzo's new twist in his seven-day ultimatum to NASA
Nyenze, Hassan Omar said, would be giving a way forward for the party even before the seven day ultimatum lapses.
Wiper now disowns a Wednesday statement by the National Assembly Minority Leader Francis Nyenze that it would exit NASA unless its party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is crowned Presidential flag bearer to oust President Uhuru Kenyatta in August.
In the latest twist, Wiper’s Secretary General and Mombasa senator Hassan Omar Hassan now says Nyenze misspoke and his sentiments at no point in time could represent Kalonzo’s.
“Wiper is conscious of its obligation to this nation and its posterity to bring to an end Jubilee’s misrule. Wiper believes that this can only happen through a broad opposition front to face Jubilee during the August 8 General Elections. Conscious of this fact, Wiper will support any decision as to who becomes the flag bearer,” Hassan said.

Wednesday, Nyenze insisted that an alleged Memorandum of Understanding signed between NASA co-principal Raila Odinga (ODM) and Kalonzo (Wiper) assuring him of the former’s backing be honoured.
“We don’t have to keep meeting and even if we meet a hundred times, we will not agree until the MoU is honoured. If they say it is dead, then we also suspect the change of name from CORD which we all loved was to stop the Kamba clamour and asking for the flag bearer position,” he revealed.
“We are saying we are getting tired since time is running out and it looks like it is a scheme to wait until the last minute to lock out any other presidential candidate,” the legislator said.

“...That will be the end of NASA and that is why I am saying it should change to something like Nyanza Super Alliance because we will pull out.”
“He has been called a watermelon, but like Jesus before Pontius Pilate he has kept quiet, he has taken the trash but now he cannot take it any longer. The Kambas have reached an edge whereby if it is not Kalonzo we will go it alone.”
“The Wiper leadership has advised Hon. Nyenze on the possible anxiety his reported statements are likely to cause or have caused...”
Nyenze, Hassan said, would be setting the record straight later today n the way forward of the party.
