Three NASA affiliate parties threaten to drop Raila's ODM

By: Geoffrey Mosoku

National Super Alliance affiliate parties have warned they will cut off ODM should it join the government. Wiper, Ford Kenya and ANC, through their respective National Executive Council (NEC) organs, say although they support dialogue between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga, the talks must be inclusive and have a clear agenda. The three parties met in Nairobi. ANC's Musalia Mudavadi said any discussions should not lead to the formation of a coalition government. “ANC will resist the woolly trappings and allures of high office and stay with the people of Kenya. If it becomes necessary, we will remain alone in the Opposition as everyone else goes in government,” Mudavadi said. Moses Wetang'ula' Ford Kenya said new avenues for acrimony should be nipped in the bud for the dialogue to be acceptable. “The party will now live up to its constitutional mandate to hold the government accountability,” secretary general Eseli Simiyu said.  Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper, which held a meeting in Lavington, said they support the dialogue, but insisted the talks must be all-inclusive. “We appreciate the initiative by the President Kenyatta and Raila on an all-inclusive and structured dialogue. We are on record calling for dialogue as a way of healing our country,” Wiper said.
