NASA is Crumbling - Kalonzo's Deputy Admits

  • Wiper Democratic Movement (WDM-K) Deputy Party leader, Farah Maalim, has revealed that the coalition is deeply divided and might not survive the fall-out from Raila Odinga's January 30 swearing-in as People's President.

    In an interview on Sunday, Maalim further revealed that NASA co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula were already plotting their political futures ahead of the 2022 General Election.

    “I don’t see NASA surviving beyond that swearing-in.

    "I also see Mudavadi, Kalonzo and Wetangula coming together and reaching out to Mt Kenya region. Politics has just started,” Maalim stated.

    Contrary to reports that a date had been set for Kalonzo to be sworn in as Deputy People's President, Maalim stated that he did not expect the Wiper leader to take the oath.

    “I don’t see Kalonzo being sworn in... It is a pity... I would have loved if he (Kalonzo) had taken a firm position from the word go and said, 'sorry I am a lawyer I don’t want to do this',” Maalim divulged.

    He further disclosed that the three other principals had been opposed to the swearing-in from the get-go.

    Maalim stated: “All along, Kalonzo, Wetangula and Mudavadai were opposed to the idea of a swearing-in ceremony.”

    Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr, however, maintained that Kalonzo would be sworn in once NASA principals had ironed out all thorny issues.

    "There are a few issues they are sorting out as principals first, but he will be sworn in," he noted.
