National Assembly Minority Leader Francis Nyenze has again said Wiper Party will only support NASA if Kalonzo Musyoka is named the presidential flag bearer. Nyenze clarified that the decision to walk away unless Kalonzo is not the flag bearer was not his or that of Wiper alone, but has been made by the people of Ukambani.
“This is no longer a request. We are not begging, it is a demand we are making. It is either Kalonzo or there will be no NASA, at least not including the Wiper party…When you hear me saying this, do not think it is the position of Nyenze, or even that of Kalonzo. This is what the Kamba nation has decided,” said Nyenze.
Nyenze urged Raila Odinga to honor the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the ODM leader and Kalonzo, which stipulates that Kalonzo will be the flag bearer in 2017. “We cannot keep trusting people who are running away from the agreement they made, just so that we can appear to be gentlemen…“The agreement was as simple as Wiper supporting Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila (Odinga) in 2013, and a similar gesture being made in 2017 to Kalonzo, irrespective of the outcome of the last polls,” Nyenze added.
