Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna has dismissed claims by NASA Co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya) that the Orange party owes them money.
Speaking during an interview on Jalang’o TV on Thursday, July 15, 2021, Sifuna claimed that ODM only receives Ksh. 11,000 from the political party’s fund which they will gladly share with their co-partners.
The ODM party Secretary General called on the three parties to send him their paybill numbers for him to send their share.
He explained that the ODM party would only share the amount from the Presidential election with Wiper, Ford Kenya and ANC since all parties in the NASA coalition fronted candidates in other categories.
“When the repeat presidential election was held Raila got 18,000 votes so we only get Ksh11,000. Wiper, Ford Kenya and ANC should send me their till number so that I send them this money. I will send Kalonzo Ksh2,500 and Wetangula Ksh. 2,500,” Sifuna stated.
The three NASA principals had renewed their war with ODM party over the political party’s funds.
They resolved to submit the papers with a view to dissolving NASA coalition which sponsored Raila Odinga in the 2017 General elections.
Mudavadi had stated that they were filing details before formally submitting the letter of withdrawal from the coalition to the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP).
The three NASA co-Principals have also vowed to renew the legal battle with ODM over the political party’s funds with Wetangula declaring that they will compel ODM to account for every shilling disbursed to the joint account by the exchequer after the coalition is dissolved.
