NASA risks losing its tittle after the Northern Advocacy for Sustainable Agriculture (NASA) filed a legal suit, demanding that the Registrar of Political Parties, Lucy Ndung’u be stopped from registering the National Super Alliance as a political party.
News about the suit comes at a time the political alliance is at the peak of popularizing itself ahead of the August 8 elections. NASA,the agricultural organization argue that its title has existed in the files of the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Co-ordination Board for decades now and was registered way before NASA ,the political party coined a similar moniker.
The agricultural organization now wants a declaration that it has enough legal rights over the name and acronym, NASA.
“This Honourable Court be pleased to issue an interim injunction against the first defendants (National Super Alliance), their agents or servants to restrain them from the use of the word or acronym ‘NASA’ as the official or unofficial names of the political party or intended political party for any reason whatsoever pending hearing and determination of the application inter partes,” read part of Northern Advocacy for Sustainable Agriculture petition
