The opposition has played down disquiet within its ranks about MPs contributing towards funding the National Super Alliance presidential campaigns.

During the opposition parliamentary group meeting on Wednesday, MPs, senators, woman representatives and governors were asked to contribute towards the campaign kitty.

Lawmakers were also told to pay party agents deployed in their constituencies.

While it is normal for members of a political party or coalition to contribute towards the activities of their outfits, first-time MPs were not pleased with being asked to contribute Sh200,000.

Top on the list of concerns was accountability in the use of the funds.

Questions were raised on how money raised for the August polls was utilised by the coalition.

GENERAL CONCENSUS

Orange Democratic Movement chairman John Mbadi downplayed the concerns.

Mr Mbadi said there was general consensus among MPs to contribute “something” to the campaign kitty.

“There was no acrimony. MPs only differed on the amount to contribute. Some wanted to give Sh250,000, others proposed Sh200,000 while some first-time lawmakers were willing to give out Sh300,000,” Mr Mbadi told the Nation.

Naswa never learns, they never come up with any well thought out and reasoned strategy. All they do is make on the spur of the moment announcements then act surprised when they fail to take off. Along the way they raise and dash the hopes of thousands of their gullible followers who are unable to see through all the bullcrap.

My sentiments exactly. And not only NASA, but Jakuon himself. He is too disorganized to lead anything. If you have been following his politics over a long time, his teams are all over the place and there lacks any coherent strategy, the only thing they know is he's going to state house. As to the how, nobody knows.

I'm more saddened by the level of brainwashing among the gullible followers.
Once again, Raila will lose fair and square, and once again, he will tell his followers that kimeibiwo.
They will believe him again.

There is a huge recurring industry that revolves around collecting money for and with Baba, then chopping it furiously as the old geezer dozes away his many hangovers.
