Days after a section of members from the Orange Democratic Movement, ODM led by Secretary General Edwin Sifuna dismissed claims that NASA forwarded a name to Governor Sonko for consideration for the position of Nairobi Deputy Governor, NASA has again forwarded another name to Sonko for consideration.
Ms Rahab Wangui Ndambuki (Wiper) was first to be nominated and on Monday, Nasa chief executive Norman Magaya notified Governor Sonko of nominee Jane Muringi Wangui (ODM).
In the letter, Mr Magaya acknowledged their first one to Mr Sonko on January 10.
“I know the mindset of our principals. As far as I am concerned, Nasa is alive and is there to stay for as long as it takes,” he said. “This morning (Monday), Mr Odinga instructed me to do another letter to Mr Sonko, which I did.”
Mr Magaya said the comments by Mr Sifuna and the others were “very unfortunate” and that anybody doubting the existence of the coalition should go to the Registrar of Political Parties to check its status.
The Political Parties Act recognises coalitions whose agreements were deposited at the registrar’s office immediately after being signed.
The law states that any member who wishes to withdraw from the groups must write an official letter to the registrar stating the reasons why as serve the partners.
So far this has not happened, at least according to Mr Magaya.
“Those doubting can check the records at the registrar’s office on any working day,” he said.
