This is what transpired in NASA’s closed- door summit

By ALLAN TAWAI

All is evidently not well in the Kenya’s opposition coalition after a crisis meeting called to resolve a simmering disquiet in the opposition ended in a stalemate.

The National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition’s summit held on Monday, January 15, took a dramatic turn after the four co-principals failed to agree on swearing-in plan.

The meeting that was called to address concerns raised by associate parties over sharing of parliamentary slots and other issues which included the swearing in plans of NASA leader Raila Odinga.

Two co-principals allegedly conspired against Mr. Odinga to scatter the oath taking plan.

Prior reports indicated that the leaders had reached an agreement over the planned inauguration, but it has now become apparent that the closed-door meeting ended in impasse.

According to a report published by Citizen News revealed that prior to the summit, As Musyoka, Wetangula and Mudavadi met, Odinga was waiting for the confirmation of the venue that was shifted to two different places before settling on the Karen Country Club.

Sources further revealed that the principals discussed the merits and demerits of a Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka inauguration. Musyoka and Wetangula allegedly agreed to reject the January 30 event. Mudavadi remained neutral.

With Odinga having reassured his supporters that he will be sworn in on January 30, his team is reported to be wary of a possible backlash from supporters should they call off the inauguration for a second time.  The Odinga camp is also yet to settle on an alternative route that would appease supporters and sustain the anti-jubilee rhetoric.

The three NASA co-principals later met Odinga and proceeded to the main meeting. Musyoka and Wetangula maintained their position on parallel oath-taking. The co-principals also reportedly pushed Odinga to relinquish one of the parliamentary leadership slots to Wiper in protest against dominance by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.

Kalonzo Musyoka Musyoka’s Wiper party and Mudavadi’s ANC had raised concerns following appointment of two members of ODM party to crucial parliamentary leadership positions.

All the four co-principals met again today to continue deliberating on the weighty issues that now threaten to split the coalition. Reports indicate the meeting, once more ended in stalemate.

In a long Facebook post seen by TUKO.co.ke, Ruth who until now as a pastor defended her latest move by saying that God is not a Christian, nor is he religious.

”Am so done with fake people!! Done with religion!! Thank God, that God is not a Christian. He is not religious. Oh! If it had not been for the Lord, who was always on my side. The enemy would have swallowed me. I would have drowned in the waters. But my soul has found an escape. I have escaped like a bird from the snare of the Fowler. How is the volume? Are the subwoofers working well?, Ruth wrote.

Ruth told off people who accused her of all manners of evils and took her through hell when she was deep into many scandals, including her latest one involving the death of her beloved hubby.

According to the singer, everyone deserted her including pastors, friends and even some family members when things got thicker on her side.

The lass said she was hurt by the accusations especially from people who did not have proof of what they were saying about her.

”Can we talk? I know this will land me in trouble with the Religious people but hey! So now, some of you have some weird audacity. You have never liked me from the word go and that’s alright. When I was going through hell and high waters and scandal was my name, you turned and kept your distance. You only want to associate with me when am the star and being celebrated. But when the rubber meets the road, hamnijui. Wah! One thing that hurt me the most was that time is when pastors I have ministered in their churches left me. Like no call. In fact some of them came up with prophecies during their live broadcasts saying that God showed them I’ll go to jail and that I was guilty. Chaiii!!! ,” she exclaimed.

Ruth wondered why the same people who ditched her were now coming back to her ”begging” to be friends again.

”Then now, God has vindicated me. I have had to pick my own broken pieces and try to move on, you’re back! Wow!! Calling me. Texting me. Telling me you were praying for me. Mercy Lord!! Was it so hard for you to just call or text and tell me that? You avoided me like a plague. You didn’t want people to know that I serve in your church or I have ever served in your church. Indeed the heart of man is wicked. Some talked and talked and I have proof. But now you’re my number one fan since I came back on social media. You comment on all my posts. Like everything I post. ‘Yes Pastor!’ ‘We love you’. Hehehehehe.” Ruth wrote.

She wrapped up by urging everyone who ran away during the times of her struggles to just keep off and let her be the ”evil woman” she was.
