NASA leader discloses why ODM is branding Kalonzo & Mudavadi betrayers
ODM's evil plan?
According to Mr Muluka, the demonizing trend was a strategy by ODM to discredit the three leaders ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Speaking during Citizen TV’s JKL show, Muluka mentioned that ODM was trying to find a way to abandon the 2017 MoU which saw Mr Kalonzo’s Wiper Party, Mudavadi’s ANC and Wetangula’s Ford Kenya party enter into an agreement to form NASA.
The Alliance agreed on how the presidential candidate selection would be conducted.
“This is about the NASA agreement which says that the person who is going to be the presidential candidate of the Alliance in 2017 will not be illegible for presentation as the Alliance’s presidential candidate again if the Coalition agreement is renewed,” Muluka said.
ODM's betrayal strategy
The ANC Secretary-General noted that since Odinga lost the election to President Uhuru Kenyatta, the Orange Party was strategizing on how to walk away from the MoU in a bid to field its own candidate in 2022.
The MoU does not allow ODM to present its own candidate in 2022.
"This is why we are seeing all this drama and people being painted in very bad colours. People are being made to smell and stink so that you can say, these cowards cannot run for this office in 2022 let Baba be the one to run,” he said.
Muluka added: "Somebody is looking for a space to wangle out from an agreement. When it was convenient they were able to enter the agreement but now they are seeing that Uhuru Kenyatta is actually sitting in that place and they cannot remove him".
Skipping Raila's swearing-in
Mr Kalonzo, Mudavadi and Wetangula have been on the receiving end after conspicuously missing Mr Odinga’s swearing-in ceremony where he took the oath of office as the People’s President.
The three were branded cowards after skipping the controversial swearing-in that took place at Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018.
