Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Mr Magaya exposed what seemed that he would have thoroughly lobbied for the position with Raila Odinga’s luminaries, after the decision to give the position to Raila Odinga’s brother Oburu Odinga, seemingly irked a huge section of the coalition members.

“Unapologetic, tenacious, relentless, unremorseful, non-compromising and principled. Will never beg on my knees for favors. Keep them. Forever stay on my feet. There is dignity in being firm. Forever grateful to my mentor James Orengo. Charismatic!” the disgruntled CEO wrote.

On Thursday, Members of Parliament concluded the election of nine Kenyans to the East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA).

The election saw Kennedy Musyoka garner 309 votes, Oburu Oginga (243), Abdikadir Aden (234), and Fatuma Ibrahim (143) to represent the National Super Alliance side. Nasa CEO lost despite an earlier list purportedly presented by Nasa leader Raila Odinga.

President Uhuru Kenyatta led Jubilee Party, on the other hand, backed former Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua with 286 votes alongside Florence Jematia (252), Mpuru Aburi (208), Wanjiku Muhia (180), and Adan Noor (192).

The exercise put to an end an intense lobbying which characterised the push by most of those who were nominated by the parties.

Big names such as Jubilee's Charles Nyachae (former NCIC commission boss) and NASA's Norman Magaya lost their bids.

The Senate and National Assembly subjected the nominees to a vote through a secret ballot. The new team is set to be sworn in Monday next week at Arusha in Tanzania for the assembly to start its business in January next year.
