Nasa talks in limbo as Mudavadi refutes links with Kalonzo,Raila
Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has refuted claims that he is in talks with former NASA principals Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka to revive the political outfit.
In a tweet he shared with his fans, Musalia distanced himself from the news making rounds online terming it as ‘distortion of issues’.
Musalia’s Friday, June 25 statement comes barely a day after talks of NASA’s revival took centre stage during the burial of former Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo.
While eulogizing the late MP, Musalia stressed on the importance of trust among the co-principals, remarks he made during a tour of Mombasa a fortnight ago.
“As we move forward, let us work together, build bridges and underpin everything we do with trust and I am sure good solutions will be found for Kenyans,” Musalia said.
The ANC party leader also stressed on the importance of leaders placing the interests of Kenyans first when going about their duties.
“We must all protect it; seek to have good governance, fairness, an economy that works for all. These are the things that I believe Jakoyo cherished,” the ANC boss said.
Musalia’s remarks were also echoed by ODM leader Raila Odinga who said, “Jakoyo’s spirit should work to unite us going forward.”
In his tribute, Gem MP Elisha Odhiambo asked the principals to put the differences arising from the 2017 polls aside and work together.
“I implore upon Kalonzo and Musalia that if you take your brother to marry and find that the girl has gone abroad to study, and the girl comes back, you must go back and take him to ensure that the girl is married,” Odhiambo said.
Siaya Senator James Orengo also called for the revival of NASA adding: “I want to plead that this is the time to bring the country together. There will be no other time.”
Orengo's statements were also echoed by National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi and Madaraka MP George Aladwa.
