The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has today admitted that a leaked report from the National Super Alliance (NASA) National Coordinating Committee that proposes a Raila Odinga-Kalonzo Musyoka ticket for the August General Election was accurate.

In the report, Amani National Congress Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi was to become the Chief Minister in the NASA government and Ford Kenya and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula was earmarked for the National Assembly Speaker if the opposition outfit manages to capture power from the Jubilee government.

“Clarification has to be made, that the report was valid and existent. NCC had been mandated to come up with that report and we did.  That report leaked out in the form that the media presented,” ODM acting Secretary General Senator Dr Agnes Zani said in a statement to the newsroom on Tuesday.

“A few aspects and figures were not those of the committee but the line-up presented had been agreed on in the committee,” Dr Zani clarified.

The orange party refuted claims by a section of the National Coordinating Committee members that it did come up with the report.

According to Zani, various methods were applied to arrive on a Raila Odinga-Kalonzo Musyoka pair to take on President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto in the August 8th polls.

“Members did the task they had been assigned to do in the committee. The report was inputted into by members of the committee at a meeting that had quorum rules adhered to. Soon after, the Committee was to share the report with the Principles for consultation and further agreement,” ODM acting Secretary General stated.

The Raila Odinga led party particularly singled out Amani National Congress (ANC) Secretary General Godfrey Osotsi last week assertions as ‘skewed’.

“The assertion that there is no report is not accurate. The report and other processes are to be furthered on by the Principals, in next stages as was to be determined by them,” Zani stated.

However, in a quick rejoinder, ANC Secretary General Godfrey Osotsi has disowned ODM statement saying the statement is a confession that leaves ‘no doubt as to where leaks of working documents meant to undermine NASA unity have been coming from’.

“It is confirmation that ODM is negotiating in bad faith. This is bad manners that shouldn’t be entertained in any negotiation,” Osotsi said in a statement to newsrooms.

Osotsi said ANC representatives in the NASA National Coordinating Committee are not aware of a formal report authored by NCC for the attention of and shared with the Principals on the matter of flag bearer.

The SG said for the Orange Party to applaud the leaking of ‘such raw and deceptive presentations as germane NCC reports’ is to say the least, undermines NASA unity at the behest of external anti-NASA forces.

“We are outraged – and Zani ought to know – that admission by ODM party that it is responsible for dirty propaganda leaks undermines the credibility and integrity of the NASA process. This level of arrogance shouldn’t be entertained,” Osotsi reiterated.

He said NASA Principals have reprimanded premature leaks of working documents and asked NCC to prepare a comprehensive report of its activities to date.

“Zani is in error of judgment purporting to speak for the NCC. It is only the Co-chairs who are authorised to speak for NCC as a team and can vouch for the authenticity of documents. The last time the Co-chairs spoke they disowned what ODM through Zani now owns,” he noted.

ANC accused ODM party of flawed arrogation of assumed mandate to negotiations that could jeopardise NASA unity of purpose. It stated that Zani got it wrong as NCC doesn’t have the mandate to identify a NASA flag bearer.
