The Leader of Minority in the National Assembly Francis Nyenze said today that Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has to convince the Kamba community leadership to support the NASA line-up as they were not part of the deal. Mr Nyenze said the NASA line-up unveiled yesterday was a raw deal for the community who expected Mr Musyoka to be the coalition's flag-bearer.
The Kitui West MP said he declined to attend the Uhuru Park rally as well as Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama who were negotiators in the NASA flag bearer because did not support the ideal of Kalonzo being Raila Odinga’s running mate. "In my own opinion, the Kamba nation got a raw deal and we do not want anybody to take Kambas for a ride," Mr Nyenze said at Parliament Buildings.
"It would be a very difficult task to convince the Kamba nation to be the second fiddle in 2017," he said at a press conference where he was accompanied by Kitui Senator David Musila and MPs Bernard Munywoki Kitungi (Mwingi West), and Marcus Mutua Muluvi (kitui East). Mr Nyenze said unless Mr Musyoka talked with the Kamba leaders, "all would not be the same again".
He said Kamba leaders will also boycott NASA rallies.
