The Kimilili member of parliament Chris Wamalwa has today revealed the cause of confusion at Hemingways hotel in Nairobi. The shuffling occured hours before the Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi's event began.
Speaking on Citizen TV daybreak, the Ford Kenya secretary general noted that the issue was caused by Wiper party members over invitation cards.
"Some members were there and yet they didn't have invitation cards. It was said that Mps do not require to have the cards. The cards should be given to other NEC members who are not known."
Speaking in details, Kathiani member of parliament and Wiper party member, Robert Mbui, accused Wamalwa for getting the short end of the stick. Mbui said Wiper party got only 15 invitation cards while United Democratic Alliance party got over 300 invitation cards. This made him to call the meeting as UDA meeting rather than OKA meeting.
Defending himself, Wamalwa claimed that the cards were being given out as per the availability basis.
"As the secretary general, we were given number of cards depending on availability of people who will accompany party leader. As Ford Kenya, I requested for 30 cards and we got exactly that."
The confusion between OKA members occurred at Bomas event when wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and NANU counterpart Gideon Moi stormed out minutes after the arrival of UDA members.
