NASA coalition has come under scrutiny following the claimed fall out of its principals.
Citizen TV senior journalist Linus Kikai on Thursday alleged that the coalition was on the brink of death or dead.
During the Citizen TV’s News Gang show, Kaikai indicated that members of the coalition held meetings in regards to how to end the party instead of reviving it.
“When the NASA leaders meet, they are not meeting to discuss the future of the alliance but to discuss whether it will be a burial or a cremation.” stated Kaikai.
The Director of Strategy and Innovation at Royal Media Services, added that the alliance was only created for the sake of the election period.
He pointed out that the union between ODM leader Raila Odinga, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya head Moses Wetangula, was a distant memory after they lost the 2017 elections to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee party.
The former NTV media boss highlighted that the the reason why ODM party was still surviving was because it was being represented in parliament.
“ODM exists due to having parliamentary seats. They have some numbers in the house.”
“If this was just about the Presidential race, the only party that would be in the National Assembly would be Jubilee with its leader President Uhuru Kenyatta.” remarked the journalist.
Further cracks within the union meant to stop Uhuru from clinching the top seat for a second time, were revealed on Thursday after ODM savagely responded to Mudavadi over the Handshake agreement.
Edwin Sifuna, who is the Secretary General of the party, disregarded claims by Mudavadi that the agreement was as a result of blackmail by the foreign community.
The tough talking Sifuna question the ANC leader on how he came to know the details of the pact after he had claimed he learnt of the verdict between Uhuru and Raila through the media.
The Secretary General noted that Mudavadi had even abandoned the ODM leader during the swearing in at Uhuru Park last year.
“On that day, Mudavadi and his colleagues are now known to have locked themselves in toilets or some other small safe areas, allegedly waiting for certain Nigerian magic wands to deliver them from self-imposed detention.” explained Sifuna.
