Looming crisis in NASA after ODM's latest decision

The latest decision by ODM has angered its coalition partner in NASA.

The decision is said to have incensed their coalition partner Amani National Congress headed by NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi who fronted their own Nambale MP Sakwa Bunyasi for the position after an earlier agreement with the other opposition partners.

Wandayi was on Monday elected the PAC Chairman while his Kibwezi East counterpart Jessica Mbalu was elected as the vice chair.

Wandayi garnered 15 votes against ANC's Bunyasi who received only 3 votes.

ANC Secretary General Barack Muluka flagged off a red light on the matter saying the sharing of positions is becoming a matter of concern within the coalition.

“We expected to see the fair sharing of seats among the coalition partners, but we are seeing the positions being hawked, not to parties, but to South Nyanza region. We cannot say Jubilee is doing bad things yet we are also doing the same,” Muluka told The Star.

ANC Parliamentary Group chairman Ayub Savula who is also the Lugari MP said he would soon convene a meeting and re-evaluate the party’s relationship with ODM.

Savula complained ODM had been treating its other coalition partners with insolence and contempt yet the coalition agreement provided for an equal opportunity.

“We feel we have been short-changed by ODM. Every time an agreement is reached, they are the first ones to go against it,” he said.

However Minority Chief whip and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed downplayed the complaints made by ANC leaders saying there was nothing wrong in PAC members electing a person they had faith in.

“This was an election and the person who got majority of votes carried the day. This was done and finished,”Mohamed said.
