NASA MP abandons Raila

Raila has reassured his supporters that his plan to be sworn in as the "people’s president" was still on.

Lurambi MP Titus Khamala from the Amani National Congress (ANC) distanced himself from the plans by Odinga terming it as as a political sideshow.

Speaking at Shikoti grounds in Lurambi sub-county, Khamala said NASA should instead focus on strengthening NASA ahead of the 2022 polls.

ODM sidelining others

“We must focus on strengthening NASA ahead of 2022 elections, parties including Jubilee have challenges but we must overcome that and aim at clinching power,” the MP said.

He accused Odinga's ODM party of sidelining its other coalition partners that has brought disquiet and simmering rival tension.

The disquiet has been brought to the fore during the recent House Leadership appointments which have been largely dominated by ODM infuriating the other NASA-affiliated parties including Wiper and ANC.

Odinga ready to die

The appointments have seen ODM grab all the Parliamentary Select Committee slots as well as the chairmanship of the powerful key watchdog house committees (Public Accounts Committee and Public Investments Committee).

Last month during the funeral of the late Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze, Odinga said he was ready to die if that would guarantee Kenyans electoral justice and an end to electoral fraud.

On Christmas Day, the former Prime Minister reassured his supporters that his plan to be sworn in as the "people’s president" was still on.

"My supporters should not panic, I am soon going to take the oath. I feel your concern. That is why everywhere I go you always give me a Bible to take oath. Let us be patient and wait for the right time," Odinga stated.

Let's focus on 2022
