NASA Principals told to take up role left behind by Odinga

Nominated Member of Parliament (MP), Godfrey Osotsi has urged National Super Alliance (NASA) Principals, Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka and

Moses Wetangula to take charge of the opposition instead of lamenting over the Uhuru Kenyatta-Raila Odinga handshake.

The remaining NASA leaders should stop accusing Raila Odinga of betrayal following his decision to work with the President. They should instead grab the opportunity and fill the gap left behind by the former Prime Minister, argued Osotsi.

The Amani National Congress (ANC) legislator said Mudavadi should seize the opportunity and salvage what he described as his dwindling political career. Mudavadi has the best chance to distinguish himself as a national opposition leader, remarked Osotsi.

According to Ososti, the ANC leader had the political goodwill of many Kenyans across the country. Mudavadi should take advantage of the present political moment and use it to repackage himself as a formidable candidate ahead of the 2022 Presidential polls, he added.

Osotsi was speaking at a funeral service at Givogi village, Hamisi Sub County in Vihiga County on Saturday.

He expressed regret that Mudavadi, Wetangula and Musyoka’s unceasing tantrums towards Odinga were making Kenyans believe the latter as the only fiercest opposition leader in the country’s history.

He however, said he will continue to support the Building Bridges initiative by Uhuru and Odinga, which he lauded as being the only way to unite the country that he noted had experienced years of political tension and conflicts since independence due to tribalism.

The legislator further drummed support for elusive unity of Luhya politicians, saying such would enable leaders from former Western province collectively agitate for economic growth and development on behalf of the locals.
