The clock is ticking, and with less than three months to the General Election, different players in the political field are flexing their muscles in what pundits are saying will be one of the hotliest contested General Election of recent times.

The Raila Odinga-led National Super Alliance (NASA), will soon host a key meeting where they will outline their manifesto to the Kenyan electorate.

According to reports, among other key agendas of the said meetings, will be the endorsement of Raila Odinga as the Opposition’s flag bearer by 11 parties.

Although the exact date of the crucial rally remains foggy, it is expected that the manifesto will be revealed in the coming week.

It is said that National delegates of the various parties will convene meetings at different locations within the city, after a similar move failed to kick off last week.

The information was shared by former Head of Cord secretariat Norman Magaya who laid out the manifesto plans by Nasa.

“The manifesto will address all the issues in the country and how they will be solved,” he told journalists on Tuesday, May 16.

Wiper party ticket winner for the Machakos gubernatorial seat Wavinya Ndeti and the Makueni gubernatorial aspirant Kivutha Kibwana are expected to be at the forefront of the Raila Odinga endorsement next week.

The event is expected to take place at the Bomas of Kenya, and will be attended by all the Nasa co-principals. Other coalition leaders, affiliate party members, supporters and other key players within the alliance will also grace the key event.

Nasa is launching an offensive against Uhuru Kenyatta and Jubile Party ahead of the August 8 poll, following a series of planned campaigns.
