The National Super Alliance (NASA) principals finally made a pre-big revelation about their yet to be named flag bearer, saying they will unveil the team that will free Kenya from the Jubilee shackles, at Uhuru Park in Nairobi on April 27.

It is on the said day that the team is expected to name the principals who will face Jubilee Party’s President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, come August 8 during the General Election.

“We have a date with you,” Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula told a charged crowd at Bomas of Kenya.

The Bungoma Senator went on to add that the naming of whichever principal as flagbearer will not affect the coalition leaders positions as equals.

“I assure Kenyans that we bound ourselves in the name of God that none of us will think twice or walk out of this arrangement.”

Also present at the announcement were Raila Odinga (ODM), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and newest entrant Chama Cha Mashinani’s Isaac Ruto.

The latter officially hopped on board on Tuesday, April 18, after he and the team reached a pre-election deal. Among the goodies promised to him are four Cabinet positions and an equal say in running the affairs of Nasa.

The Nasa leaders have been under intense pressure to name the person who will challenge President Kenyatta in polls that are less than four months away.

They have at the same time rubbished claims of infighting and its impending split, saying they take their time to pick their guy, even bashing the Jubilee Party saying their choice was none of their business.

All the four original Nasa leaders are eyeing the all-important nod to fly the Opposition’s flag in the impending polls. Isaac Ruto will be defending his Bomet Governor seat.
