Wetangula eats humble pie after warning by Raila’s party

Weta makes u-turn

Last week, Wetangula said NASA was a “moribund organization” and referred to it as “history”.

The comments did not go well with ODM which, through Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, dared Ford Kenya to formally exit the Opposition coalition.

Sifuna further challenged Wetangula to lead his party in relinquishing parliamentary positions held by virtue of being in the NASA coalition.

“He has time and again said Nasa is dead but why doesn’t he send his official communication to the Registrar of Political Parties? What we know is that Nasa died after the January 30 swearing-in when the cowards could not turn up for the occasion,” Sifuna stated in response to the threat of exit.

The Ford Kenya leader has now been forced to clarify his words, insisting that he was misquoted in his earlier statements and that his party would continue being a member of the Nasa coalition until 2022.

“NASA was formed by Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi. NASA does not belong to an individual. When I was in Mombasa, journalists asked me about the status of NASA and I told them it is on its death bed. I said NASA is moribund which means it’s totally inactive.”

“Legally we are in parliament through our respective parties but under the NASA umbrella and we shall remain that way for the next five years. These are my FORD-Kenya MCAs in Busia and they are in NASA,” Wetangula stated.
