ODM boss Raila Odinga tells ODM NEC  to prepare for a new political alliance ahead of the 2022 polls as he ditches NASA.

There have been clear indications of ditching NASA after the handshake but now the former prime minister is determined to dump the incurable NASA coalition.


It is clear now that he is arranging political guns ahead of 2022. Raila on Friday informed that a partnership with President Uhuru Kenyatta could be in the queue ready to change the political climate in the country.

Previously, NASA which comprised of Wiper, ANC, Ford-Kenya, ODM and CCM had an upper hand but now it is technically dead with each of the political bodies shaping different ways forward.

Raila told members of ODM's National Executive Committee(NEC) that the destiny looks bright for the party following his alliance with Uhuru's wing of Jubilee party.

Deputy President William Ruto is leading the other team of Jubilee baptised as Tangatanga.

“Our existing alliance with the pro-reform wing of Jubilee led by the President has seen the country move forward in critical areas like fighting corruption and initiating key development projects evenly to more parts of the country,” Raila said.

Raila expressed during a conference of NEC members held in Machakos on Friday.

The opposition leader announced to his party members to be ready for different formations going forward but cautioned against burning bridges.

“We must forge new alliances and strengthen existing ones with the aim of getting the country to move forward,” Raila said.

The remarks come weeks after Jubilee vice-chairman David Murathe, a close friend of the President, asked Kenyans to prepare for a Raila presidency in 2022.

Raila's own brother Oburu Oginga declared Raila winning the 2022 polls because he now has the support of the President, Deep State and the System.

Jubilee Vice-Chairman comments were upheld by COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli who also said 2022 will be Raila's time to lead the country.

Both Murathe and Atwoli are prominent figures in the Building Bridges Initiative, a process Raila and Uhuru are pushing to alter the country's governance composition.
