The National Super Alliance (NASA) now stands formally dissolved after the Registrar of political parties, Ann Nderitu, confirmed the official dissolution of the coalition, today.
In a letter seen by the press, copied to ODM leader Raila Odinga, ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper, FORD-Kenya’s Moses Wetangula and Isaac Ruto of Chama Cha Mashinani, Nderitu noted that the resolutions of parties were executed as per set requirements.
“This Office shall, in line with Regulation 22 (2) of the Political Parties (Registration) Regulations, 2019, publish a notice of the dissolution in two newspapers,” Nderitu said in part.
According to Article 15 (1) of the Coalition Agreement, the coalition shall stand dissolved where any three of the coalition parties decide to leave the coalition.
NASA Coalition, remained dissolved after Wiper, ANC, Ford Kenya and Chama Cha Mashinani wrote to her office announcing their withdrawal from the coalition.
Earlier, this month, three NASA principals – Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula signed a formal exit pact from the opposition coalition and announced countrywide rallies to market their One Kenya Alliance (OKA).
“Political party coalitions are built on trust. Once that trust is eroded, the partnership cannot survive. Mindful of this trust deficit, our three parties transparently informed the Kenyan people of their individual decision to leave the NASA Coalition,” ANC, Wiper and Ford Kenya leaders said while announcing their resolve.
