Kalonzo Musyoka’s WIPER party has broken toes with NASA.
Wiper has signed an agreement with Jubilee and KANU in line with the emerging political realignments in the country.
“The Wiper takes this step following the realization that the NASA Coalition has become totally dysfunctional. Wiper moves ahead with speed to enter into a coalition agreement with the ruling party, Jubilee, in line with the emerging political realignments in the country,” Wiper Secretary General Judith Sijeny said in a statement.
ANC had earlier said that all NASA affiliated partiesnmust respect the agreement or follow the law in quitting the coalition.
The SG sent the statement following a virtual meeting of the National Executive Council(NEC) of the Wiper Democratic Movement.
The NEC also adopted the report of the Wiper Disciplinary Committee that recommended the expulsion of former Machakos Senator, Johnston Muthama.
Muthama was accused of making political statements not in line with the party, including his recent sentiments supporting Deputy President’s presidential bid.
During the signing of the Cooperation Agreement, Musyoka said that the NASA summit,the topmost decision making organ of the opposition alliance, has never met since 2017 elections giving credence to reports of a looming collapse of the opposition.
Jubilee has also signed Cooperation Agreements with KANU which saw West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio named the Senate Majority Leader.
