In Summary

  • The meeting has been billed as a make or break session for the Nasa principals, with each of them fighting for a chance to face Jubilee’s Uhuru Kenyatta in the August elections.
  • Nasa co-principals have denied claims that the coalition was facing a crisis arising from the failure by the national coordinating committee to agree on the method of nominating the Nasa presidential candidate.

National Super Alliance (Nasa) leaders are expected to meet on Tuesday to give fresh impetus to the coalition’s coordinating committee tasked with working out a method of identifying its presidential candidate.

The meeting, which will be attended by ODM leader Raila Odinga, who arrived last evening from the US, has been billed as a make or break session for the Nasa principals, with each of them fighting for a chance to face Jubilee’s Uhuru Kenyatta in the August elections.

On Monday, Nasa co-principal Musalia Mudavadi, however, downplayed the significance of the meeting, insisting that there was no crisis in the opposition coalition.

“What people are speculating about are normal issues within a coalition that is seeking a presidential candidate,” he said on phone.

Mr Mudavadi (ANC) and his co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford-Kenya) have denied claims that the coalition was facing a crisis arising from the failure by the national coordinating committee to agree on the method of nominating the Nasa presidential candidate.
