Accept and Move On, Kalonzo Tells Kamba Leaders Opposed to Raila as NASA Flag Bearer
National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential running mate Kalonzo Musyoka has responded to a section of Kamba leaders opposed to the new NASA power sharing lineup that named ODM leader Raila Odinga as the presidential flag bearer, telling them to 'accept the decision and move on'.
Kalonzo was responding to a section of Kamba leaders led by minority leader in the National Assembly Francis Nyenze and former Wiper chairman David Musila, who claimed that Kambas were given a law deal in the new lineup.
"A decision was made, we need to accept and move as Kenyans," Kalonzo was quoted by the Star.
The leaders said that it was going to be hard to sell Raila Odinga to Kambas who were waiting for their son to be named the NASA presidential flag bearer.
“ Musyoka had assured us that he will not take anything less than the presidency and that is the message we passed to our people in Ukambani. How then do we go back and tell them that he will be deputy President?” Nyenze asked.
The legislators said that an MOU entered between Wiper and ODM stating that Kalonzo was to be named as the 2017 Presidential flag bearer ought to have been honored.
“We have to be told what changed and I will not shy away from highlighting these issues as the Kamba got a raw deal,” Nyenze insisted.
