NASA makes surprise U-Turn ahead of Raila's "swearing-in"

The National Resistance Movement's parliamentary wing on Wednesday made an unexpected move.

The NASA National Resistance Movement's (NRM) parliamentary wing submitted its House leadership members to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi for approval.

In the list, Suba South John Mbadi (ODM) has been appointed as Minority Leader with Suna East MP Junet Mohammed (ODM) proposed as the Minority Whip.

Mohamed in parliament will be deputised by Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa of Ford Kenya while Mbadi will be deputised by Kathiani MP Robert Mbui of Wiper.

In the Senate, NASA has listed Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula (Ford Kenya) as Minority Leader and will be deputised by his Siaya counterpart James Orengo (ODM) with Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior (WIper) named as Minority Whip.

Kilonzo will be deputised by Petronila Were of the Amani National Congress.

“Our MPs will not be part of committees because the House is not legally constituted,”Wetangula stated in September.

NASA said they would not participate in House committees dominated by ‘computer generated’ leaders.
