After retreating to the Lakeside town of Naivasha in what is said to be a review of a report of a 12-member technical committee tasked with finding a workable strategy, it has emerged that the three NASA divorcees have put in place stringent demands for Raila as Gideon Moi apparently appeared to be a ‘traitor’ and Odinga sympathizer.
According to insider details accessed by the Daily Nation, ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi is greatly opposed to the inclusion of Raila in their political path. Mudavadi is said to have developed fear on grounds that Raila’s entry will hurt his chances for clinching either president or deputy presidency.
On the other hand, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has maintained his stand that it is time for Raila to back other presidential candidates in the state house contest. A similar stand to the one held by Ford Kenya boss Moses Wetangula.
On the contrary, KANU chairman Gideon Moi wants Mr. Odinga to be brought on board, for better for worse, ahead of next year’s race.
While the three NASA divorcees appeared to take radical stands against Raila, Gideon Moi’s soft perception about Odinga has exposed him as a great sympathizer of the latter.
Nation also reports that after president Uhuru Kenyatta held closed-door talks with the country’s top political leaders in Mombasa where Raila was allegedly given an upper hand in the meeting, the OKA principals have now declared that if they must support the former prime minister, then he also has to meet his end of the bargain.
The domination of Raila’s name in the Naivasha meeting now resuscitates the contentious subject of working with him after there bitter fallout in the defunct NASA coalition.
