In an attempt to finalize their paperwork and end their coalition agreement that gave birth to NASA, the three principals have renewed their war with Orange Democratic Movement Party over funds.
The trio comprising of Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula and ANC Musalia Mudavadi have finally resolved to submit the paperwork that with end NASA, the coalition Raila used in 2017 for presidency.
Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi noted that a technical team was working on the issue, that will soon see NASA’s termination.
According to Musalia, the technical team has declared his presidential bid, and doing the last details before formally submitting the letter of withdrawal to the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP).
“It is a process and something will soon happen. There are procedural issues we have to look at before the final decision is made. Obviously, people are working behind the scene on the matter,” Mudavadi told the Standard.
As per the NASA constitution, the coalition ceases to stand once the three political parties officially submits their withdrawal, hence should the papers submitted by the three parties Wiper Party, ANC, and Ford Kenya be approved by ORPP then NASA will be terminated.
The trio are alsop reported to vow to renew their legal battle with ODM over the political party’s funds.
Moses Wetangula went on the record declaring that the Orange party will be put to task to account for every coin disbursed to the joint account by the exchequer.
“What is left of NASA is winding up and accountability issues. Public resources have been channeled to one of the partners who have completely refused to account,” Wetangula also told the Standard.
Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is reported to have been tasked with reaching out to ODM party on the funding issues, with ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna said to have given them the go ahead to dissolve the coalition.
Sifuna went ahead to refute the claims of lack of accountability on the ODM party regarding the political party’s funds.
“We have never known what amount of money they are demanding from us; the legal and factual basis of that demand, so at least when the matter is in court we will be able to know for the first time what their claim against us is. So we welcome that cause of action.”
