Ngilu tells NASA to unite or forget about winning 2022 presidential polls

 In what appears to be a political fishing expedition in Ukambani, three NASA principals excluding Raila Odinga met at Stoni Athi resort in Machakos County  on Wednesday.

They were Wiper party leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya leader and Bungoma senator Moses Masika Wetang’ula and ANC party chief Musalia Mudavadi.

Kitui Governor Kaluki Ngilu, while addressing the three in the presence of other delegates said that the three should remain united and open their doors to more partners if they are to win the 2022 presidential campaign.

Should the team go separate ways, they risk losing the presidency to Deputy President William Ruto who has been going across the country in whirlwind tour popularising his Hustler Movement.

“The country is in a state of hopelessness not knowing what to do next. All eyes of this country are looking at you to deliver the country to the next level of development.  Kenyans want a united leadership and therefore you have no choice but to remain united,” Ngilu said.


Mrs Ngilu cautioned the NASA principals against divisions in their coalition saying that it will cost them the 2022 presidential polls. She equated being a divided house to living a lie. “If any of you think they can deliver alone, it is a lie. You must remain together until we see a white smoke,” she advised.

The Kitui Governor said political party coalitions are buses that never get full and NASA shouldn’t shut doors to Narc party which she leads. She said she will not be coming alone but with others who will increase the chances of NASA winning the next presidential elections.

Conspicuously absent from the Machakos retreat was ODM Party Leader Raila Amolo Odinga.

While voicing her support for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), Ngilu said that unity was paramount in development and BBI champions for unity of the county.

Ngilu took a swipe at Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua for rushing to launch a senatorial candidate using his Maendeleo Chap Chap party. “Let the neck (of senator Kabaka) rest first. We don’t do things that fast. We let the one who went to rest and start our activities again”, she said.

Dr Mutua unlevelled former Water and Irrigation Minister Mutua Katuku as the party’s senatorial candidate for Machakos County after the seat fell vacant following the death of Mr Boniface Mutinda Kabaka.
