Nairobi, April 6- The NASA technical committee has announced the flag-bearer- the man who will go against Uhuru Kenyatta in 2017.
The 12-member team met in a closed door meeting where they recommended Raila for president with Kalonzo as his running mate.
A local daily reported that Kalonzo and Mudavadi walked out of the meeting after disagreeing with the recommendations.
For starters, Kalonzo said that he had at no point indicated that he was willing to settle for anything lesser than the presidential ticket.
Mudavadi claimed that Raila had agreed to have him as the running mate only for the tables to be turned at the very last minute.
Following the interim announcement, Kalonzo will not be attending the NASA retreat scheduled for the weekend.
He will be campaigning in Taveta and Ukambani.
A week ago, Wiper had given NASA an ultimatum to name Kalonzo as the flag bearer.
They had announced that they would leave the coalition if NASA did not heed to their demands.
