Tension in NASA as Raila sharply differs with Kalonzo

Musyoka took a different position on voting pattern that angered Raila in Mombasa


The two who showed their might during an Iftar hosted by Hassan Joho Friday night, Mr Musyoka stepped on Raila’s toes when he urged his colleagues in ODM to stop advocating for the election of their candidates as this will create unfairness.

“Don’t say ODM, ODM ODM and take everything because that will leave us with nothing,” said Mr Musyoka exposed.

He added: “We have Amani National Congress and other partners in Nasa. Let’s stop asking voters to elect only ODM candidates.”

On his part, however, Mr Odinga maintained that he is out to sell the agenda of his ODM party and that Mr Musyoka was free to do so for his Wiper Party.

“I know Mr Musyoka will advocate for Wiper, Mr Mudavadi ANC, Mr Moses Wetangula Ford-Kenya and Mr Isaac Ruto will say let rain come from the skies (Chama Cha Mashinani's symbol is rain drops). But I say elect ODM candidates in Mombasa,” Mr Odinga said.

On his part, Mombasa County governor Hassan Joho downplayed the showdown and concentrated on taking home Jubilee during the August elections.

“This government, more than any other has persecuted Muslims. Until now, the whereabouts of some Muslim youths and sheikhs is not known and we Muslims are being treated like second class citizens,” said Governor Joho.

Mr Joho urged Muslims to fight for their rights and against injustices saying they had suffered under past and present regimes.

“I have been tortured so much by the Uhuru Kenyatta government, but every time they put me down, I rise up because I believe only in God. I don’t fear any human being because they have the same life like me from God,” he said.

He urged all Muslims to vote for Nasa saying it will look after their interests. He called on his fellow Muslim legislators to "be at the forefront in fighting for the Muslims’ rights,” he said.
