Dr Alfred Mutua’s tough question to Raila

Nasa leaders have a crucial meeting in Machakos today.

The meeting is set to culminate in the inauguration of the People’s Assembly on Saturday.

Taking his jab on Twitter, the former Government spokesman wondered why the event could not be held in Kitui County where Mr Musyoka hails, or Makueni County, whose Governor, Prof Kivutha Kibwana, is a Wiper luminary.

People's Assembly motion

“I have heard that the NASA leadership is coming to Machakos for a rally. That is their constitutional right. I am just wondering, how come they never go to Makueni County where they have a NASA Governor or Kitui County where one of the NASA Principals hails from? Just wondering,” Dr Mutua tweeted to his 500,000 followers.

Mounting pressure

In December last year, the Machakos County Assembly defied the Maendeleo Chap Chap leader and passed a motion to establish the People's Assembly, making it the 12th county assembly in the country pass the motion.

Earlier, pressure had been mounted on the County Assembly to pass the motion with Majority Leader Francis Ngunga making a remark that it was “a matter of life and death” for him.

Crucial meeting

The four Nasa principals are set for a meeting at Maanzoni Lodge in Dr Mutua’s home county, in a final attempt to rally Mr Raila Odinga’s co-principals behind his planned swearing-in as the people’s president, scheduled for January 30.

While the technical organ of the NASA, through chief strategist Dr David Ndii, sought to dispel reports of divisions over the oath plan, sources within the coalition, according to the Nation on Friday, revealed that talks between the four principals on Monday and Tuesday, aimed at reaching a common ground on the matter, had ended without a deal.

It is understood that financiers and a few hardliners in Mr Odinga’s ODM party are behind the push for the former Prime Minister to take a presidential oath despite the risk of the ramifications both locally and internationally. Political analysts have expressed extreme doubts in Mr Odinga reading “the exact oath as is described in the constitution.”
