Amani National Congress (ANC) is still in NASA and not looking to join the Jubilee Coalition, this is according to party leader Musalia Mudavadi.
Speaking during a Sunday, May 17 night interview with KTN News, Mudavadi said that ANC is part of the National Super Alliance (NASA) and that its role is the opposition, a role they are keen to play responsibly and constructively.
According to Mudavadi, his party cannot be in two different coalitions at the same time, insisting that he has had no talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta whatsoever.
“ANC is part of the NASA coalition, a coalition that brought together ODM, Wiper, Ford Kenya and Chama Cha Mashinani. We registered a coalition document, which we put through the registrar of political parties. That document is valid unless the constituent member parties decide it is no longer useful and they exit through laid down protocols,” said Mudavadi.
The former vice president refuted reports that ANC is set to hold a parliamentary group meeting, to explore ways of entering into a coalition with the ruling party.
There have been media reports that after securing KANU’s Gideon Moi, President Uhuru is looking to woo Mudavadi, so as to form a new alliance.
Mudavadi, however, refused to delve into the manner in which Jubilee has handled their matters off late and the post-election coalition with the independence party KANU, insisting that it is not an ANC affair to meddle or interfere into the ruling party’s business.
