Opposition party National Super Alliance (NASA) will reveal the party flagbearer on 27th April at Uhuru Park, Nairobi. The announcement was made during the party meeting at the Bomas of Kenya today, and party principal Moses Wetangula said all details have been dealt with, and the last agreement to be dealt with is Isaac Ruto’s induction into the team. FORD-Kenya leader Moses Wetangula, who officially made the announcement, said the principals had achieved substantial progress when it comes to selecting the flagbearer. “On the 27th of this year, this month April 2017, we have a date with you at Uhuru Park,” said Wetangula, as supporters present cheered on.
Wetangula urged Kenyans to turn up in large numbers, “That day you’ll be told the team which will lead Kenya.” He insisted that all leaders of the party are equal, even those who will be selected to carry the party’s banner in the general election, “They’ll be the first among equals, but we shall all be equal.” He said that supporters who incline themselves to specific party principals and don’t want to support other principals are allied with Jubilee. The NASA principal said all issues dealing with agreements have been concluded, “Don’t listen to what the deputy president said about power sharing,” he said, “Leadership is about power, and power must be shared and disbursed horizontally to lead the country properly. So the agreement about power-sharing is done and dusted.”
ODM leader Raila Odinga said with Bomet Governor and CCM leader Isaac Ruto joining the party, the ‘Pentagon’ has been relaunched. Ruto said it doesn’t matter who takes the position of flagbearer, insisting that tribe inclination isn’t the preferred mode of operation.
