NASA deal a threat to Wetangula’s political future
Wetangula has no capacity to run NASA’s presidential flag, claims analyst
Moses Wetangula’s political career hangs in the balance following the entry of Amani National Congress (ANC) leader, Musalia Mudavadi into NASA.
The newly formed opposition coalition NASA brings together Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi, all of whom are eyeing the Presidency.
According to The Star, Wetangula’s lack of goodwill from Kenyans and lack of experience will work to his downfall.
The other three chiefs have served in senior government positions before. Raila has served as a Prime Minister, Kalonzo Vice President, and Mudavadi Deputy Prime Minister after years of experience in government.
Wetangula has opposed the formation of NASA before, claiming that the opposition would be running as CORD.
Wetangula signed the NASA power-sharing deal
On Thursday, however, he met with the other chiefs during the signing of the NASA pact detailing how they will share power if they win the August Presidential election.
According to the NASA power-sharing agreement, the coalition’s Presidential ticket will go to the most popular candidate who will be selected by a 12-member team for that purpose.
NASA chiefs to be awarded top government positions
After nominations, the first runner-up will automatically qualify as the running mate. The second runner-up will be awarded the position of Chief Minister, which is equivalent to the Prime Minister while the remaining chief will be awarded the position of Speaker.
Raila likely to be NASA’s presidential flag bearer
It is highly likely that Raila Odinga will run for Presidency, with Musalia as his running mate.
