NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 22 – The Amani National Congress (ANC) National Executive Council has endorsed the formation of a Super-Alliance between its leader Musalia Mudavadi, the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) and other Opposition parties to face off with the Jubilee Party in next year’s General Election.
Party Secretary-General Godfrey Osotsi, announced the formation of the proposed ‘National Super Alliance (NASA) or the ‘Muungano Maalum’ as the vehicle to unite the Opposition chiefs and ensure a win in the next election.
“The meeting unequivocally supports our party leader for his noble effort to unify Opposition forces against the Jubilee regime. We have mandated the party leader to reach out to other leaders to enhance NASA. And to hasten the party leaders’ outreach activities of NASA, the NEC resolved to set up an ANC Technical Team of Experts to explore Muungano Maalum with other Kenyan patriots,” said Osotsi.
He said the party will have a team leading the talks on the issue.
“The National Super Alliance (NASA) or ‘Muungano Maalum’ is a serious debate; we would like to engage in particularly with those in the Opposition. The whole idea is to have a more inclusive and robust political dispensation,” he told news briefing after the Party NEC in Machakos.
Osotsi reiterated the party’s support for its leader as he starts a journey to unify the Opposition against Jubilee, saying such an alliance will create a space for all those against misrule by the ruling coalition.
The party is now urging those who want to join it to do so before February 2017 as the law requires.
