Why NASA has suspended People’s Assembly agenda
SEE ALSO :Raila runs into protest against taxThe People’s Assembly was launched late last year by the opposition NASA to steer forward the people’s agenda and force electoral reform ahead of Raila’s “swearing-in” that took place on January 30. Ninenteen counties had already passed legislation to put the assemblies in motion. Dr Ndii's announcement comes three days after NASA leader Raila Odinga reconciliation with President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday that is being seen as the end of their decades-old vendetta. Raila has since joined three NASA co-principals among them Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi and Senator Moses Wetangu'la for a meeting at Stoni Athi Resort in Machakos County today, to chart the coalition’s political future. Speaking exclusively to KTN NEWS, Ndii said the sole purpose of the suspension was so “they could reason together and give unity an opportunity,” acknowledging the country had suffered ethnic polarisation since the August General Election. However, NASA will not stop fighting for electoral reforms and forging ahead with the people’s agenda as was made clear by the coalition’s principals, said Dr Ndii.
