The National Super Alliance (NASA) will today, April 20, make a major announcement during a meeting at Bomas of Kenya, bringing back hope in the naming of its presidential candidate.
Also, a new principal was introduced in the coalition, joining ODM’s Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya, Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka and the person credited for creating the alliance, Musalia Mudavadi of ANC.
Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto of Chama Cha Mashinani joined the aforementioned on Tuesday, even as reports say Kanu Secretary General Nick Salat has been seen at some of their meetings.
Ruto reportedly struck a pre-election deal with the principals which will guide their new found union all the way to after the polls scheduled for August 8.
The Opposition has been under intense pressure to name the person who will fight it out with Jubilee Party’s President Uhuru Kenyatta in the elections that is less than four months away.
The four principals have rubbished claims of infighting and an impending split, saying they will stick together and support the combination that will be picked to fly the alliance’s flag.
Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama said on Wednesday that they already have a flag bearer and very soon Kenyans will get to know where Nasa is headed. “We meet tomorrow at Bomas…you will hear a lot from us,” he noted.
While speaking to journalists in Nairobi, the Wiper representative in the Nasa flagbearer talks added that they cannot let Kenyans down by failing to name the flagbearer on time.
“Wote watazungumza pale Bomas (They will all speak at Bomas)…we have a flag bearer,” Muthama said.
“Kenyans can sit and watch television, listen to radio and read the newspapers on Friday. Very soon Kenyans will get to know where we are heading.” He continued.
He at the same time bashed the Uhuruto led Jubilee saying they should mind their own business and not worry about the Opposition’s choice.
