Gaucho gave Karua an alternative in Azimio after the Narc Kenya leader rejected the NADCO report.

Diehard supporter of Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga Calvins Okoth alias Gaucho is at loggerheads with Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua for dissenting from the coalition over the National Dialogue Committee (NADCO) report. 

Karua has from the onset expressed her reservations about the report which she implied is suspicious.

While calling on Kenyans to reject the report, Karua observed that it failed to address the issue of the cost of living.

“The NADCO report has nothing to alleviate the suffering of citizens but it offers goodies to the leadership. This is totally unacceptable, it is a fraud upon Kenyans and it should be frowned upon and rejected. It is a distracting national smokescreen,” she said.

Responding to her statement, Gaucho faulted Karua for dissenting from the larger coalition whose principals had endorsed the report.

According to him, by virtue of Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka being part of the talks, the recommendations in the report were in the best interest of Kenyans.

"Kalonzo has been party to many peace talks, including the ones in South Sudan. So these Kenyan talks cannot be a thing to him. By rejecting the report, does she mean Kalonzo was not aware of what was expected of his presence on the dialogue table? posed Gaucho.

The political activist counselled Karua to mobilise her support within Azimio and go out to the streets if she was dissatisfied with the report.

"If you think you are not satisfied, please call your supporters to the streets. We can't accept Raila's supporters to be misused every time," said Gaucho.
