The National Super Alliance (NASA) and the Jubilee Party will now face a third coalition force come August 2017.
Former presidential candidate Abduba Dida has formed a third coalition force that will challenge the Jubilee Party and NASA.
In a visit to Turkana county Wednesday january 25, Dida announced that he will be running for president on a Tunza Coalition ticket.
According to Dida, Tunza is made up of Alliance of Real Change Party, Roots Party of Kenya and several other small parties.
It is reported that Tunza will be a coalition for democracy and real change unlike NASA which he claimed was his idea stolen by Musalia Mudavadi.
“Many Kenyans associate NASA with Mudavadi but NASA is my brainchild. I suggested NASA to honorable Mudavadi but the subsequent meetings that were to follow, he made away with it,” said Dida.
NASA is a coalition between the Amani National Congress led by Musalia Mudavadi and the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) and is fronted by Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula and Kalonzo Musyoka.
NASA aims to form a united opposition that will defeat the Jubilee Party in August 2017 by fronting single candidate to face Uhuru Kenyatta.
