NASA is confused - DP Ruto

NASA bigwigs downplayed the possibilities if emerging cracks on the coalition saying that the technical committee would eventually conduct fair nomination exercise and the flag bearer will be picked based on merit.

Currently, the Raila, Musalia, Wetangula and Musyoka led NASA is yet to decide on who should be its presidential flag bearer five months to the August polls. The coalition is already facing an uphill task to decide the best candidate among Kalonzo Musyoka, Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi.

Earlier, NASA bigwigs downplayed the possibilities if emerging cracks on the coalition saying that the technical committee would eventually conduct fair nomination exercise and the flag bearer will be picked based on merit.

This, according to the Deputy President, is a clear indication of political mistrust and misunderstanding within NASA.

The Deputy President, who was speaking ion his tour at Chaka, Kieni East Sub County, questioned the integrity of NASA leaders who want lead the country saying that they are not up to the task after allegedly failing to manage a few individuals in the newly formed opposition vehicle.

“NASA should emulate Jubilee Party which is trying to unite all Kenyans to be one; they are playing politics of dividing Kenyans along tribal lines,” said the Deputy President.

He urged residents to vote for Jubilee as they have initiated many developmental projects in the last four years.

Nyeri Senator, Mutahi Kagwe, who recently announced his intentions to seek the coveted gubernatorial seat, said that NASA leaders are not driven by the development agenda but that of greed for power.

Also accompanying the Deputy President in the campaign rally were MPs Kanini Kega of Kieni, Peter Weru of Mathira, and Mary Wambui of Othaya.

Meanwhile, Wiper Party leader and NASA co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka submitted his presidential nomination papers. The clearance and eventual acceptance of the papers to his party set a new trouble in the newly formed NASA, with tussles emerging on who should be the flag bearer for the coalition.

Recently, leaders from Ukambani led by former Lands CS Charity Ngilu saying that Musyoka should be accorded the flag, something that is set to split NASA even more.
