Our victory depends on our unity, Musalia warns NASA amid wiper exit threats

Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi has cautioned his colleagues in the National Super Alliance (NASA) that they risk being defeated in the August polls, should one of the co-principals bolt out the coalition.

Mudavadi warned that any division in the coalition will automatically earn President Uhuru Kenyatta another second term in office.

Reacting to threats by National Assembly Minority Leader Francis Nyenze that Wiper ditch NASA if Kalonzo Musyoka is not named the coalition’s flag bearer, Mudavadi said all the NASA principals should remain united to ensure victory for the opposition.

“We will sacrifice our individual ambitions and support whoever will be picked to be the coalition’s presidential flag bearer,” he said.

This even as Nasa co-principal Raila Odinga has dismissed claims that the alliance is falling apart.

Raila who was addressing his supporters in Kisii County yesterday said all the co-principals in the coalition are inseparable and described as untrue statements claiming that Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka may bolt.

“I spoke to Kalonzo this morning who assured me that he is still committed to the alliance,” Mr Odinga said.

On Wednesday, Kitui West and National Assembly Minority Leader Francis Nyenze gave the National Super Alliance a seven-day ultimatum to name its party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, as the presidential flag-bearer failure to which they will abandon the united opposition outfit.

Nyenze said Kalonzo will not accept to be running mate or any other position in NASA ahead of the August 8 election.

“If the National Coordinating Committee is not called this week, after next week we will not be available to attend their meetings. We must meet at a central place not at somebody’s office,” he said.

“If it is not Kalonzo, then that will be the end of NASA. It could change to something like Nyanza Super Alliance, because we will pull out,” he said at a press conference at Parliament buildings.

Nyenze accused some members of the 12-member National Coordinating Committee-the organ mandated to pick the NASA presidential flag bearer of stalling talks by deliberately postponing meetings.
