“Mr Wetang’ula will formally write to the speakers today morning so that when the House starts its normal operations, we have leadership in place,” said the source who attended the meeting.


The meeting took place after the opposition stormed out of a meeting with the electoral agency commissioners at the Anniversary Towers earlier Tuesday.

The meeting according to the source was attended by Vihiga Senator George Khaniri, John Mbadi (Suba South), Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini), Robert Mbui (Kathiani) and Sakwa Bunyasi (Nambale)

The opposition has however not settled on the chairpersons of parliamentary committees.

“We did not want to be seen to be rushing to fill in all the position, other positions will be discussed later and appropriate candidates will be floated,” said a source who attended the meeting.

Contacted, Mr Mbadi said he was not aware of the said meeting at Mr Wetang'ula’s office though he confirmed that consultations have been going among the Nasa principals on the House leadership positions.

“There are matters that I cannot authoritatively comment about as they are a preserve of the principals. What I can confirm to you is that the principals have been consulting about the positions,” Mr Mbadi said.

The ODM chairman said he will confirm the list today after consultation with Mr Wetang'ula whom he said is the only person authorised to speak on behalf of Nasa in Parliament.
