The Amani National Congress (ANC), Wiper and Ford-Kenya parties have submitted their joint letter to the registrar of political parties, informing the agency of their decision to ditch the National Super Alliance (NASA).
After submitting the letter to the registrar, the three parties which together with KANU form the One Kenya Alliance held a press conference to brief the nation on the event.
Many were expecting KANU party leader Gideon Moi to be present at the press conference, but he decided to skip it, causing speculation over his commitment to the alliance.

However, while addressing the media, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi noted that Gideon was aware of the presser, and opted to miss it because it addressed matters in relation to NASA; which KANU was not a part of.
He urged Kenyans not to read too much into Gideon’s absence, adding that the latter is fully committed to One Kenya Alliance.
“Gideon Moi is not here today because this was an issue of the parties that were formally leaving NASA and he is fully aware. Let not any speculations arise from absence today,” Mudavadi said.
Mudavadi noted that once the letter is approved by the registrar of political parties, NASA will cease to exist, adding that they are now charting a new way forward.
“It will no longer be news if you are coming to ask us about NASA. It's behind us. Let us now look at new formations and reorganizations,” he said.
