A National Super Alliance (NASA) governor has revealed that he regrets supporting ODM Party leader Raila Odinga.

Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana hit out at Raila, following his meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, last week.

Kibwana criticised Raila for failing to inform his NASA co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula about the scheduled meeting between him and the Head of State, terming the move as selfish.

The county boss accused Raila of stabbing Kalonzo and the entire Wiper Party in the back, adding that they regret rallying behind the former Prime Minister for 10 years.


We regret that we have sacrificed 10 years for Raila. Was Kalonzo wrong to back Raila in 2013? Would the Kalonzo-Musalia ticket in 2017 have offered Kenyans a better chance?" asked Kibwana.

Kibwana, who is also the Wiper Party chairman, questioned why Raila took oath as the people’s president on January 30, only to enter into a pact with Uhuru later.

"So what is the value of the famous oath and pretended treason then and now? Why didn't Raila recognise Uhuru after August 8, 2017, or October 26, 2017? Why did he subject the country to a depressed economy for seven months?" he asked.

Kibwana further noted that Raila was unpredictable, and wondered whether he would honour the MoU signed by NASA affiliate parties which identified Kalonzo as the 2022 candidate.

He said there was need for the country to engage in an all-inclusive dialogue, rather than indulging in 'personal, narrow interests'.
