Thursday June 18, 2020 – Amani National Congress (ANC) Party Leader, Musalia Mudavadi, has called out his National Super Alliance (NASA) co-principal and Wiper Party Leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, daring him to quit the coalition.
This follows his agreement with President Uhuru Kenyatta to work together for the good of the country and which according to Mudavadi is a betrayal to NASA.
Speaking yesterday, Mudavadi urged Kalonzo to be man enough and quite NASA to join Jubilee.
“Why not gather the courage and formally put pen to paper, saying you have exited NASA because you prefer a certain arrangement,” he remarked.
He then warned the former Vice President of the perils of serving two masters at ago, stating that there was only one possible result under such circumstances and it was not a good one for Kalonzo.
“Mpanda farasi wawili hupasuka msamba, (one who rides two horses at once will split apart), he warned.
Musyoka’s Wiper Party and Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) led by former Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto, signed a post-election coalition agreement with the ruling Jubilee Party yesterday.
Speaking following the signing, Kalonzo castigated the NASA coalition over what he described as inactivity resulting in his decision to plan for the future of his party.
“Our intention is to conclude a coalition agreement with Jubilee.”
“If it were not for this Covid19 pandemic challenge, we would have our delegates okay the decision,” Kalonzo stated.
“I can tell you for a fact that the NASA summit has never sat since the 2017 elections.”
“If the summit cannot sit, we cannot continue holding our members at ransom.”
“We have to be realistic.” he added
The exit of Wiper and CCM, and ODM Party Leader, Raila Odinga’s working relationship with the ruling party, now spells doom for the coalition that sponsored a Raila-Kalonzo ticket in the 2017 General Elections.
