Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi has delved into the intrigues around the boycott of repeat elections by the National Super Alliance in 2017. 

After the Supreme Court nullified the election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, the NASA team led by Raila Odinga resorted to boycotting the polls citing the IEBC had not met the fundamental minimals. 

However, according to Mudavadi, by the time Odinga was calling for the boycott, he had already agreed on the handshake deal with President Uhuru Kenyatta. 

Mudavadi made the revelations after Odinga accused him of cowardice over failure to attend his mock swearing-in 2018. 

"But there is more cowardice to pull out of a repeat election, disguised as a protest of the pre-rigged outcome when in actual fact it's only because the act is part of a pre-arranged settlement for yourself," Musalia said through his spokesman Kibisu Kabatesi.

This is after former NASA co-principals, including Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, and Moses Wetangula called on Raila to endorse one of them. 

However, Raila has maintained that he will not endorse any of them because they abandoned him at his hour of need. 

Mudavadi revelations come as a surprise considering that the handshake deal was unveiled on March 18, 2018, after President Uhuru held talks with Odinga, at the Harambee House offices. 

ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna termed the new alliance bringing together Musalia, Kalonzo, and Wetang'ula as "Raila niachie Alliance".

The official has accused the three of being cry babies

"We advice the three that if they want the presidency, Raila does not keep the ballots at his home. They must stop dancing around their village huts and travel the breadth of the country seeking that mandate. Raila is focused on helping the President deliver on the unity agenda for all Kenyans, and building the bridges to a prosperous future," Sifuna said.

ODM has maintained that Raila has no interest in 2022 talk.
