Progressive Party of Kenya has officially made a U-turn in its earlier decision to support Uhuru Kenyatta’s bid for the August reelection, and has now pledged allegiance to Raila Odinga-Musalia Mudavadi-Kalonzo Musyoka-Moses Wetangula led National Super Alliance (NASA).

The party leader who is also the Vihiga County governor Moses Akaranga has vowed to distance itself from any businesses associated with Jubilee party in the western region.

The party reached a consensus to ditch the party during the national delegates meeting held at the Pentecostal Assemblies of Kenya headquarters at Nyang’ori in western Kenya.

PPK has been in many incidences associated with Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee party.

Speaking during the announcement of the decision, Vihiga Governor Moses Akaranga said that the decision was reached by the National Delegates Council in a bid to support home groomed Musalia Mudavadi to secure the NASA flag bearer for the august polls.

“We are in NASA as an affiliate party and we support Mudavadi for the NASA ticket,” Akaranga said.

However, with the turn of events – now that Raila has been appointed alongside Kalonzo Musyoka as flag bearer – the tune is likely to change.

In 2013, Akaranga took the Vihiga gubernatorial race on a independent candidature and now he says he will be vying on a PPK ticket.
