  • National Super Alliance (NASA) members of parliament will stay away from parliament, co-principal Moses Wetangula has stated.

    Speaking from the Okoa Kenya offices on Wednesday, the Bungoma Senator categorically stated that the parliamentary proceedings had been illegally reinstated.

    "Our MPs will not be party to any parliamentary proceedings or house committees because the Houses, as are currently constituted, are devoid of any legality and we'll treat them as Jubilee Parliamentary Group Meetings," the Senator declared.

    Wetangula further added that the NASA coalition would not be participating in elections that do not uphold the standard of electoral justice witnessed in civilised countries.

    "We will not participate in any election where it turns out to be a ritual and we end up with computer generated leaders.

    "We will only take part in elections as are know in civilised countries where even without agents in polling stations the electoral bodies deliver fair credible just elections," he stated.

    The co-principal also announced that they would hold a rally at the Jacaranda grounds in Nairobi on Saturday.

    On Tuesday, the MPs made good their threat to boycott President Uhuru Kenyatta's inaugural address to the joint sitting of the 12th Parliament.

    All but two of the Opposition MPs attended the opening of the 12th Parliament, as the rest of the lawmakers attended a rally led by the NASA principals in Kibra, Nairobi.
