Nairobi - The National Alliance (TNA) party Chairman, Hon. Johnson Sakaja has dismissed recent media reports alleging that there are rebels in the party aiming to oust him and split the party.
Sakaja affirmed that TNA remains a formidable and united party and cited that the witnessed issues raised by some of its members are in line with the party's constitutional freedom of speech and democracy.
"TNA party believes in internal democracy and everybody in TNA has the right to raise issues. Those excited that TNA will be divided will be surprised since we have ways of settling such issues," said Sakaja.
Sakaja stated that as TNA's Chairman, he is obligated to listen to members' concerns.
"TNA is going to convene a parliamentary group meeting on Thursday for both the Senate and National Assembly to discuss the raised issues for amicable resolution," noted Sakaja.
He added that they are working to ensure that the party attains national grassroots support for long-term existence.
Sakaja was speaking at a press conference among the alleged TNA rebel MPs: Anthony Kimani for Kikuyu constituency, James Kega for Kieni and Moses Ole Sakuda for Kajiado West. The legislators also dismissed reports that they were planning to oust Sakaja and vowed to work hand in hand with him to strengthen the party for 2017 elections and for its entire existence.
