Amani National Congress (ANC) Musalia Mudavadi has shot down National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition talks ahead of the much-awaited and already heated up 2022 General elections.
The former Vice-President made clear that there is no existence of any talks of reviving NASA.
“No such conversation. Distortion of issues,” read his tweet.
Mudavidi’s dismissal of the NASA revival comes after Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga who was the leader of the NASA coalition, asked some of his co-principals; Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalanzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula and Mudavadi, to come and work together in an effort to move the country forward.
Speaking during the requiem service of former and late Gem Member of Parliament Jakoyo Midiwo, the former Prime Minister said that NASA co-principals should join hands again for the betterment of the country.
Kalonzo, who had earlier made it clear that he would be unwise to support Raila Odinga for the third time in the Presidential race, said that he was looking forward to his co-principals coming together and mending broken bridges.
He said stated they were just waiting for a favourable court ruling on Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) after the document’s proponents appealed against the five-bench judges who ruled the report as unconstitutional, null and void.
He added that he hopes that justice will prevail and the reform process for the good of the country will continue, further adding that those are the higher ideals.
Mudavadi, who had also attended the service on his part, called for trust among the NASA co-principals so that they could solve their problems which could a long way in giving service to Kenyans.
One week ago, President Uhuru Kenyatta, while speaking to Ukambani leaders at Status House, called on the NASA principals to join hands ahead of the 2022 general elections.
He added that he would support anyone the coalition would front as their flag bearer in next year’s polls.
During the burial service of former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile, Kitui County Governor Charity Ngilu warned Raila and Kalonzo that they risk losing next year’s Presidential elections to Deputy William Ruto if they do not unite.
