Amani National Congress (ANC) Leader Musalia Mudavadi has said he has no plans of joining the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) in a super alliance to oust Jubilee from power come next year.

The declaration went against the ANC’s earlier stand of reaching out to other opposition parties.

On Friday the ANC National Executive Council endorsed the formation of a Super-Alliance between Musalia Mudavadi, Cord and other opposition parties in order to remove the Jubilee Party from power in next year’s general election.

The Party Secretary-General Godfrey Osotsi challenged Mudavadi to take charge of the formation of the proposed ‘National Super Alliance (Nasa) which would unite the opposition and ensure a win in the next election.

Speaking to teachers from Western Kenya who live in Nairobi, Mudavadi said that Friday’s announcement had been “misinterpreted” to show that he had decided to join Cord.

Philosophy

Mudavadi argued that the philosophy behind the super alliance was not about joining Cord.

“The idea is not about individual parties. It is bigger than just joining Cord or other parties. It is about crystallising on a vehicle that would defeat Jubilee hands down come next year,” Mudavadi said.

The ANC leader said that an alliance should not be perceived to be only about political parties.

“The super alliance can be a coalition of civil societies, churches, teachers and business societies who can change the country for a positive cause,” he said.

The declaration by Mudavadi will be seen as a setback by Cord who had already started warming up to him.

Cord co-principal Moses Wetangula has openly backed the idea of uniting opposition parties such as ANC, Kanu, Nark Kenya and Chama Cha Mashinani in order to remove Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party from power.
