Speaking at Orange house on Tuesday, a visibly irritated Odinga told journalists that the world would not die if NASA did not name the presidential flagbearer. “Give us a break! The world will not die because he has not been announced. What is this all the time you are discussing in the media? It is our business, not yours... do not keep asking us," the former prime minister affirmedHe added: “We have not agreed on the line-up. And, naturally, when we do, we will do."

The former premier also downplayed the infighting between his team and that of ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi.This is after ODM Secretary General Agnes Zani disclosed that the leaked report to media which indicated Odinga was NASA's flagbearer and Kalonzo Musyoka his running mate was accurate.“That report leaked out in the form the media presented. A few aspects and figures were not those of the committee but the line-up presented had been agreed on in committee,” Zani stated.

In rejoinder, Amani secretary-general Godfrey Osotsi termed the statement reckless and accused ODM of leaking documents to the media to undermine NASA unity.  “We are outraged, and Zani ought to know that the admission by ODM that it is responsible for dirty propaganda leaks undermines the credibility and integrity of the Nasa process.

It is confirmation that ODM is negotiating in bad faith. This is bad manners that shouldn’t be entertained," Mr. Osotsi affirmed.
