The National Super Alliance (NASA) Co-principals Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula are planning to sue the Raila Odinga-led Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party over political parties’ funding.
The trio is also planning to officially withdraw from NASA after a fallout with the Orange party.
According to Mudavadi, the three coalition partners, Amani National Congress (ANC), Wiper and Ford Kenya are already formulating paperwork that will see the end to NASA coalition. The coalition agreement stipulates that NASA can only cease to exist if three partners decide to pull out.
The trio want to sue Raila Odinga’s party over political parties’ funds that have been disbursed to ODM since 2017.
Bungoma Senator and the Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula said public resources have been channeled to one of the coalition’s partners who has completely refused to account, which he says may lead to legal challenges.
As NASA affiliates, Wetang’ula says they shall seek remedies legally starting with arbitration, tribunal and “maybe eventually the High Court”.
Wetang’ula further noted that Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka was mandated to address the issue with the ODM party leader but Odinga and ODM are said to have snubbed any negotiations with Kalonzo for the last six months.
A meeting that was meant to happen on May 7 failed to happen, after ODM deputy party leader Wycliffe Oparanya failed to show up, further complicating the matter.
ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna has however rubbished the matter, claiming that ODM does not owe anything to the three parties.
