Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi of ANC and Ford-Kenya boss Moses Wetangula have finally exited the National Super Alliance (Nasa), the mega opposition coalition in Kenya.
Nasa was established ahead of the 2017 general elections, and it consisted of four principals, including the chief opposition leader Raila Odinga of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
In a joint press address on Tuesday, 03 August 2021, the three said they have written to the registrar of political parties to withdraw their membership to the outfit.
They mentioned a lack of trust as to why they walked out of the once a strong coalition in the nation.
“Relevant instruments giving effect to the decision have been processed by each party in accordance with their respective party constitutions,” a joint communique read by MP Sakwa Bunyasi.
Before addressing the press, the leaders had a closed-door meeting to chart their way forward with one year remaining to the next polls.
The principals, who are now in One Kenya Alliance (OKA), said the coalition will reduce taxation, fight corruption, and reduce foreign debts when they get elected next year.
“NASA is now in the past and we will not address anything to do with it henceforth. We are now fully in One Kenya Alliance (OKA) and we’ll traverse the country to popularise it,” said Mudavadi.
ODM party last week also announced its withdrawal from Nasa.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
