Uhuru Raila deal NASA finally ends boycott

No resisting anymore

The NASA leadership has announced an end to the boycott on parliamentary business that was announced in November 2017.

ODM Chairman, who is also the National Assembly Minority Leader, announced that NASA MPs would fully resume their parliamentary work which they have often absconded since the repeat elections.

The decision is one of the goodwill gestures that have been made after President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga made a deal to work together.

Mbadi had in November stated that the NASA team believed the Office of the President to be vacant and would therefore not vet presidential nominees.

They have since stayed off the committees which vetted various presidential appointees including cabinet secretaries, principal secretaries, and ambassadors.


The NASA Minority Leader hinted that the deal between Kenyatta and Odinga will also be reflected in Parliament where the Opposition MPs will work with those in government.

There will be no party alignments that I’m now Jubilee or NASA. We will be handling issues the way the parliamentary system should work. The House will oversight the Executive without being petty,” Mbadi stated.

He added that the agreement will help enrich the quality and objectivity of parliamentary debate.
