NASA coprincipal Moses Wetangula has reiterated that the coalition is dead and declared that he is no longer part and parcel of the opposition outfit.
The Ford-Kenya party leader further claimed that his political journey with ODM leader Raila Odinga is over. He, however, noted that the process of leaving the coalition requires going through party organs with a clear understanding of political dynamics.
“I repeat here that my political journey with Odinga is over. I am not in NASA with body and heart. I am only forced and bound by the law. NASA died on January 30 and was buried, thus I don’t hold any NASA positions in Parliament.”
Speaking during an itnerview with Citizen TV news anchor Hussein Mohamed last night, the Bungoma Senator maintained: “I repeat; NASA is now history …it is moribund…in ICU and inactive. All the coalition partners have been moving across the country chest-thumping on their agenda but only Ford-K and ANC seem to be holding things together with the possibility of a merger.”
He added: “Technically I am in NASA because I am in Parliament under the coalition’s umbrella. It should be noted that all the four parties under the coalition are not parliamentary parties. That’s why the shell of NASA remains relevant for this season.”
Wetangula further accused Raila and President Uhuru of wanting everything for themselves and trying to achieve their goals through state machinery manipulations.
“Kalonzo, Musalia and I are among those who called for dialogue to cool political temperatures after the disputed election. Raila, being our presidential candidate with Kalonzo as his running mate, could have had the courtesy to at least let us know of the handshake,” he said.
He, however, noted that they did not have a problem with the handshake but rather with the process that led to it.
