National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders visited Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka in Germany on Tuesday.

Led by Senator Moses Wetang’ula (Bungoma), Governors Josphat Nanok (Turkana) and Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) visted Mr Musyoka at an unidentified hospital.

According to ODM communication director Philip Etale, Opposition leader Raila Odinga is also expected to visit the Wiper leader and jet back to Kenya on Friday this week.

Senator Moses Wetang’ula, Governor Josphat Nanok & Governor Kivutha Kibwana today visited Kalonzo Musyoka in Germany. Raila Odinga will also visit him and travel back home Friday this week,” posted Etale on Twitter.


For over two years now Kalonzo’s wife, Pauline Musyoka, who was last admitted in Nairobi Hospital, has been in undergoing treatment in Germany.

A banker by profession, Pauline has been working with Central Bank and is said to be in a medical leave.

NASA announced on Monday its welcome plan for Raila, who is expected to jet back in the country on Friday, November 17, 2017.

The coalition invited supporters to a major rally at the Kamukunji Grounds in Kamukunji Constituency on Thursday, November 16.

According to Siaya Senator James Orengo, former senators Boni Khalwale and Johnstone Muthama, the rally will be a dress rehearsal for the Friday grand welcome.

“We welcome all Kenyans to this grand Thursday rally and the arrival party on Friday. All these are part of our continuing journey of ensuring electoral justice and putting an end to the evil culture of sham elections with pre-determined outcomes,” the NASA leaders said in a joint statement.

Raila, who left the county on Tuesday last week, held a series of meetings in the US to explain the political stalemate in the country.

On Thursday, the Opposition chief addressed hundreds of attendants at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington where he hit out at foreign envoys in Kenya for supporting the election of President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.

The former Prime Minister blamed the envoys for contributing towards the election crisis in the country.

“The envoys efforts up to now have not succeeded in diffusing the crisis. Let me be blunt again. They sometimes have contributed to the problem.

“I have come to Washington to convey a simple message: We need a fuller engagement from the many arms of governance that your country possesses to assist envoys based in Nairobi,” said Raila.
