The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has poured cold water on Kalonzo Musyoka’s attempts to reconcile the “noisy and messy” divorce between its party leader Raila Odinga and Ford-Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula.
According to ODM Chairman John Mbadi, there is no dispute between the two leaders and their parties, and so, the attempt by Kalonzo to “solve any issue does not arise.”
Mbadi was speaking hours after a meeting between the Wiper Party leader and the Bugoma Senator at the new Wiper offices in Karen, Nairobi on Tuesday.
Following the meeting, Wiper party said Musyoka promised to “continue to be the glue holding together the coalition and that he will spare no effort to keep his brothers in good talking terms for the prosperity and peace of the nation.”
Kalonzo added: “The NASA family will remain united. As Wetangula noted, we remain committed and connected.”
But ODM Chairman rubbished Kalonzo’s assertions saying, “There is nothing like reconciling.”
“You are reconciling who and who? I do not see any issue here and, since we have not registered any dispute between us and Ford-Kenya, what then?” posed Mbadi.
He added: “All we did was that we asked Mr Wetang’ula to behave. It is him who made the unfortunate remarks about us.”
However, ODM director of political affairs Opiyo Wandayi expressed optimism over Kalonzo’s meeting with Weta.
Wandayi, who is also the Ugunja MP, said: “Any move by Mr Wetang’ula to retrace his steps is welcome. Nasa is a movement and it has got enough room for everybody. Nobody chased away anybody and anybody is free to make amends.”
