Raila Agrees to Share NASA Billions, a Day After Wiper Left Coalition

Raila Odinga with Kalonzo Musyoka.
ODM leader Raila Odinga has agreed to a round table with NASA coalition partners over the contested political parties’ funding in a last-minute effort to woo back his estranged partners in the opposition coalition.

Yesterday the former Premier wrote to the four partner parties in NASA, agreeing to share funds attributed to Members of Parliament.

This was after months of haggling with the ODM previously insisting that he did not owe his coalition partners even a cent.

“The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) is appreciative of the constructive consultations that have taken place among the leaders of our respective parties,” Raila wrote in the said letter.

“Consequently thereto, our party has deliberated internally and resolved that, without prejudice, we share with our coalition partners ODM’s share of the Political Parties Fund attributed to parliamentary (and excluding presidential, gubernatorial, and county assemblies) votes for the financial years 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/2020,” added Raila.

This move comes hot in the heals of Wiper Democratic Party on Monday, July 26, announcing its withdrawal from the troubled National Super Alliance (NASA).

Speaking to the media at the Wiper Party headquarters in Karen, the party leader Kalonzo Musyoka stated that the party made the decision after lengthy deliberations.

Kalonzo revealed that his party would now be concentrating its efforts on the One Kenya Alliance (OKA). He further stated that Wiper was working in cooperation with Jubilee.

The former Vice President also welcomed the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM)  to join Wiper in forming a new formidable alliance that will form the next government

“We are not killing NASA and killing ODM at the same time. We are welcoming to a bigger new family. NASA and Cord had their time,” Kalonzo reiterated.
