Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has said the party will not enter into a coalition with Jubilee.
Mudavadi communicated this through his social media account.
Noting that ANC is still a member of NASA coalition, Mudavadi said it is would be illegal for the party to belong to more than one alliance at the same time.
“I want to make it clear that ANC party is still a member of the NASA coalition which has never been invalidated. In addition, a political party cannot legally be in multiple coalitions at the same time. Therefore, ANC will not enter into a coalition with the Jubilee Party,” Mudavadi said.
The former vice president also highlighted their importance as the opposition group, saying they will keep the Jubilee government in check and ensure it upholds the law.
“We are the opposition and have to play our part questioning the government and hold them answerable and accountable to the general public. We as opposition are equally accountable in upholding the paramount interests of the citizens of the nation,” Mudavadi added.
IS NASA DEAD?
ODM and NASA candidate in 2017 leader Raila Odinga, has gravitated towards Jubilee Party since the March 9th 2018 handshake.
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka is also working with President Uhuru Kenyatta, and is on record saying his party is drafting a post-election deal with Jubilee.
But Mudavadi told a local daily on Sunday that no party in the coalition, which was his brain child, has expressed interest in pulling out yet.
“To date, no one has expressed the desire to quit NASA but the truth is that ODM has had its own plans. He (Raila) joined the handshake very fast and as we speak, they are in the process of eyeing other coalitions,” he said.
Despite his loyalty to NASA, Mudavadi said his party will form a coalition with other parties if NASA partners don’t communicate their plans for 2022 General Election.
In addition, he admitted that ANC is individually planning the way forward based on the political changes in the country at the moment.
“I want to say there is no enmity, but in matters politics, we as ANC are reorganising and strategising as per the political developments that are taking place in Kenya,” the ANC leader said.
Already, President Kenyatta’s Jubilee has formed a post-election coalition with independence party KANU, a move seen to further alienate Deputy President William Ruto.
