NASA Principals to Hold Crisis Meeting

  • The National Super Alliance (NASA) principals are set to hold a crisis meeting in Karen, Nairobi following the media shutdown ahead of the swearing-in at Uhuru Park.

    According to Citizen Digital, Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka noted that the opposition leaders would meet following the shut down of media stations airing the coalition's event.

    He explained that the principals were going to consult on the next step after private TV stations were taken off the air.

    The former Vice President condemned the media shutdown, adding that it was unfair for the state to interfere with media freedom.

    Addressing NASA supporters, Musyoka urged them to be calm and wait for direction from the party leadership.

    "We don't understand the panic. NASA supporters should remain calm

    "No NASA supporter should carry out any act of violence. In fact, they should carry white handkerchiefs," he stated.

    Reports indicate that Musyoka has left his home but it is still not clear where he is headed to.

    Meanwhile, there was minimum activity at Opposition Leader Raila Odinga's home with no clear indication whether he was at the residence.
