In Summary
  • Speaking in Mombasa over the weekend, Mr Muluka said Nasa should fold up and allow affiliate parties to chart their own political future.

  • Mr Osotsi defended Mr Mudavadi’s position on the coalition, and wondered “where Mr Muluka is getting the instructions to antagonise his own party boss.”

The call by acting Amani National Congress (ANC) Secretary-General Barrack Muluka to dissolve Nasa has escalated the war within the party.

ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi on Monday dismissed the call, saying Nasa is strong and that it will remain intact because it is an idea he conceived ahead of the 2017 general election.

“Nasa is intact and strong. It is ours and we should be talking about reclaiming it, but not throwing away the baby with the bath water,” Mr Mudavadi said.

COALITION

He added: “We are engaging coalition partners and others to see how we can make it stronger.”

But speaking in Mombasa over the weekend, Mr Muluka said Nasa should fold up and allow affiliate parties to chart their own political future.

His remarks have escalated the war between him and nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi, who he replaced as secretary-general. Mr Osotsi, however, contested Mr Muluka’s appointment. The case is pending in court.

On Monday, Mr Osotsi defended Mr Mudavadi’s position on the coalition, and wondered “where Mr Muluka is getting the instructions to antagonise his own party boss.”

“It is wrong for an individual whose role is not clear in Nasa to come and attempt to speak on its behalf, contradicting our party boss in the process,” Mr Osotsi said.
