Opposition meets at Bomas to unveil super alliance
The opposition is currently meeting at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi to chart the way forward and unveil the newest political vehicle – the National Super Alliance (NASA) which brings together more than five political parties.
NASA, an idea first floated by the Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi, has brought together political leaders from the opposition Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) and ANC.

Mudavadi, the recently crowned Luhya Community Spokesman has been vocal in drumming up support for the alliance and calling on Kenyans to vote for change.
The recently passed amendments to the election laws are also set to come up for debate by the opposition.
In December last year, Kakamega County Governor Wycliffe Oparanya extended an invite to Kenya African National Union (KANU) leader and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi to the proposed National Super Alliance (NASA) Coalition.
With KANU being a crucial addition to the NASA Coalition because of its followership in the vote-rich Rift Valley, which is viewed as a Jubilee Party stronghold, Oparanya urged Moi terming NASA as the only vessel capable of dislodging Jubilee from power.
Jubilee party on the other hand has since dismissed NASA as a lame coalition of self-seeking leaders.
In an earlier address, President Uhuru Kenyatta dismissed the much hyped National Super Alliance (NASA) saying it is a group of power hungry leaders who only care about their selfish interests.
Kenyatta who was addressing wananchi in Kericho’s Kipchimchim Grounds, Brooke and Chepseon areas in December 2016 said the greed for power by opposition leaders is betrayed by the manner in which they are obsessed with creating more positions for themselves in disregard of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.
