Jubilee tried ‘to hijack NASA’
Mudavadi says name preserved for all Kenyans of goodwill who want to see a corruption-free country
ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi yesterday said the National Super Alliance was registered to safeguard the name from Jubilee political brokers.
In a statement sent to the Star, he said NASA is in safe custody. The development comes following reports some Jubilee officials tried to pull a fast one on the opposition but were time-barred.
“We beat them to the game. The name has been preserved on behalf of all Kenyans of goodwill who want to see democratic and accountable management of the country, free from Jubilee corruption,” Mudavadi said.
He said some people attempted to hijack the name by purporting to preserve it at the Registrar of Political Parties.
“Registrar of Political Parties Lucy Ndung’u had confirmed various applications had been made to own NASA and she was looking at them,” Mudavadi said. “They are so scared of NASA that the mischief is meant to stifle its birth. But they should have known NASA belongs to the people and their intrigues would be known. It is the people who reported to us and hence the caveat we have put.”
He said NASA’s immediate aim is to forge unity among Kenyans in removing Jubilee from power so it can bring back sanity in the country’s management.
“Kenya has been experimenting and second-guessing governance since the introduction of multipartism through political parties and coalitions of convenience. The Jubilee experiment has been the worst disaster,” Mudavadi said.
He said NASA is a policy and issue-based partnership that will form a democratic and inclusive government, accountable to Kenyans and offer a remedy to the run-down economy.
“Look at the looting spree. Where will the country be with another five years of the same? Do we allow them to engage in blame games on who stole what? If two people blame each other for stealing, both are key witnesses against each other and ought to be in jail,” he said.
Mudavadi was referring to the exchange between former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru and DP William Ruto.
