  • National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga has spoken out on co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka being a 'watermelon'.

    Speaking on Tuesday during a media interview, Odinga stated that he was not aware that Musyoka is referred to as a watermelon.

    "I know the watermelons that were there that time. I was spearheading the campaign for the new constitution and My running mate stood with me during the Bomas draft Constitution..." he revealed.

    He noted that "watermelons" were the leaders who opposed constitutional reforms but maintained Kalonzo was not among them.

    Interestingly, Odinga is the one who coined the 'watermelon' tag to refer to Musyoka's indecisiveness during the drafting of the Constitution in 2010.

    Kalonzo has often tried to shed off the tag, telling supporters that he is firmly in the opposition and is behind Odinga's quest for Presidency.

    NASA has faced a number of challenges in the run-up to the fresh presidential election with a number of leaders decamping to the Jubilee Party.

    The exodus was led by former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto who ditched Odinga for Uhuru's team just a few weeks after losing his governorship seat to Joyce Laboso.

    Ruto vowed to rally behind Kenyatta and hinted that he felt 'lonely' in NASA.

    Next in line was former Meru Governor Peter Munya who dumped the opposition barely a week after joining them.
