ODM leader Raila Odinga has ruled out supporting any of his former National Super Alliance (NASA) colleagues for the presidency even as he hinted at a new coalition ahead of next year’s General Election.

Raila accused the former NASA leaders of abandoning him at the hour of need during his swearing-in as the People’s President after the disputed 2017 repeat presidential elections.

“When we were going for the swearing-in, in Nairobi they refused. They switched off their phones and they were shivering due to fear. They now want me to give them the mantle by supporting them,” he said.

He added: “Can I give them the mantle? I won’t give them because they demonstrated their cowardice.”

None of the NASA co-principals turned up to witness Raila ‘taking an oath’ at Uhuru Park in the event that attracted a mammoth crowd.

Speaking yesterday during a burial in Ndiwa, Homa Bay County, Raila dismissed the push by Musalia, Kalonzo and Wetang’ula for his blessings to vie for the presidency.

Raila has said he won’t be endorsing any of his NASA co-principals.

Raila, who together with President Uhuru Kenyatta are the architects of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), said they were currently preoccupied with constitutional review agenda and that presidential politics should be shelved until 2022.

He at the same time asked those opposed to BBI to stick to that and face the yes team in the ballot.
