There is speculations that there is opening cracks within the National Super Alliance (NASA), that shouldn’t surprise anyone, since the central leadership of NASA didn’t show-up when Raila Odinga and the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) had their People’s President Swearing-In on the 30th January 2018. The leadership of Amani National Congress (ANC) Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper Democratic Movement Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and FORD Kenya Moses Wetan’gula. Who all wasn’t at the venue in Uhuru Park.
Therefore, that the cracks are coming now is expected, just like all of them are scratching for their futures, while the Jubilee is planning their next loot. Because it is like the leadership within Jubilee are planning for the running-mates for Deputy President William Ruto and if Gideon Moi will exceed him. It is in the same regard, that the NASA leadership are planning their road ahead of 2022. What is sad is they are accepting defeat and the illegitimate government of President Kenyatta. Just as the Cabinet Secretaries are sworn-in and the start of extended loans of the regime is appearing. A hot minute after the NASA was ordered by the CS Fred Matiangi to be a “criminal gang”. Many of the leaders has gotten suspended licenses of arms, passports and deals. They have lost their security detail and also could lose more of private finances, as the state will use their position to harass and destroy NASA.
Seemingly it seems to work, because Kalonzo, Wetangula and Mudavadi isn’t really pushing resistance, they wasn’t even trying to make a proper ghost government. They just was afraid in their homes and hasn’t tried to push any professed agenda together. Seemingly, the NASA leadership are crumbling. Not that is unlikely. I have been waiting for Kalonzo to push himself to Jubilee or anywhere else, where the grass is greener. That is because that would fit his ways, since he has moved-on before.
Mudavadi who came in quickly before the elections and did his thing. But he hasn’t moved anywhere or seemed like in direct contact. Wetangula is the silent one of these three. But the ANC, WDM and Ford-Kenya, are the smaller parties inside the NASA. It is the ODM and Odinga who has the biggest following, all three of them knows this. Even as if they go away and continue on their own. They need to have alliance with some sort of kingmaker or kingpin. Jubilee has had it and used that to make the alliance of the parties into one single unit before the election in 2017.
We know that this has already cost for Wiper and Kalonzo, as the Ukambi Youth Forum has dismissed him twice after 30th January 2018. They have now said that they don’t trust him. We can await what other Youth Groups to do ANC and Ford-Kenya. As they haven’t shown loyalty to the agenda of stopping Jubilee either. Kalonzo was supposed to be running-mate and first deputy under Odinga. He has clearly not have the motivation for following that. Since he backed-off and trying to take the secure way out.
If these are bailing out now, to secure the present and make something new for 2022. Then they are clearly, showing that they only thought CORD/NASA was a flagship to use, but not to stop the Jubilee. Kalonzo has really started to show his dismay and therefore youths are addressing him. Soon, the same might happen with Mudavadi and Wetangula. They might end up with favors and pleasures on the level of Ekuru Aukot of the Thirdway Alliance. If they play it wrong, the public will have much favors and care about him. They will be in the same division of relevance Thirdway, is that the aims of the fellas?
Will they give away and risk losing the public crowds around the ODM and Odinga, over possible quick-fix money elsewhere? Are they having so little integrity, that they trade that off for a possible favor in 2022?
I wouldn’t be surprised if the public turned on them and shunned them. They was supposed to support the People’s Assembly, be in resistance of the modern day KANU government. Be in opposing place and show the way of a real change towards the Kenyatta Presidency. Instead, they will prolong and makes sure the government get their way. We can really question if they where there just to gain of popularity of Odinga and not really offering themselves for the cause. They would not risk themselves or their position. Not able to take he cost, even as supporters of them was detained, hurt and even died in demonstrations. If they went under the banner and because of one of these leaders. Then they were played by them and used, just like the government has used the ferried supporters during the elections.
If these leaders doesn’t understand that sentiment and giving in now, as they have started a hardline, a way that cost now, but benefit in the long run. Then they don’t understand the fight against the cartels that are running the republic. Peace.
