Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula’s party FORD-Kenya has vowed to sue Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) over the sharing of funds in the National Super Alliance (NASA) opposition coalition.
This was revealed during a meeting with Ford Kenya party officials on Sunday, where party leader Wetangula accused ODM of excluding the other three NASA affiliate parties in the sharing of funds allocated to the opposition.
“ODM is appropriating all the political parties funds being paid from the exchequer to the exclusion of ANC, Wiper and Ford Kenya,” said Wetangula.
Ford-Kenya will be enjoining the Musalia Mudavadi-led ANC Party in the case.
The NASA affiliate parties — ODM, Wiper, Ford-Kenya and Amani National Congress (ANC) — have in the recent past been feuding over sharing of funds.
Recently, the Wiper Party directed their members from making contributions to the Nasa coalition on grounds that there was no accountability at the Nasa secretariat.
“I did write a letter to the Clerk from instruction of our party’s NEC that our members’ contributions are needed in the party first. As a party, we didn’t feel the accountability aspect of the Nasa secretariat on how the money was being used,” said Wiper executive director Jared Siso as quoted by the Star.
Next to follow suit was ODM, who aborted their contributions to Nasa. National Assembly Minority leader and ODM chairman John Mbadi wrote to National Assembly Clerk Michael Sialiai directing the Clerk to channel lawmakers’ contributions to their parties.
