    THE National Alliance party yesterday reiterated it would not welcome former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga into its fold. The party told Njenga to continue supporting Prime Minister Raila Odinga. “Maina Njenga is not welcome to TNA.

    TNA stands for certain things; hope, opportunities for all, generational rejuvenation and unity of all communities. Maina Njenga does not represent these things. He should stay with Raila in ODM where there was a better fit,” said the party’s chairman Johnson Sakaja. “There is little, if any, compatibility between us and him. Maina Njenga has stated repeatedly where he belongs and stands politically.

    He has been working with ODM and his party Mkenya Solidarity Movement and that is where he should remain,” added Sakaja. Njenga has organised a meeting tomorrow at his Kitengela home where he wants to dissolve Mkenya Solidarity Movement and lead 3,000 members to support the TNA of Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta.

    According to Njenga, the meeting will also be used to push for the unity of the Kikuyu community. He said he wants to use the meeting to plead with the youth not to panic as a result of the crimes against humanity case Uhuru is facing at the International Criminal Court at the Hague.

    Uhuru, Eldoret North MP William Ruto, former head of the civil service Francis Muthaura and radio journalist Joshua arap Sang are also facing charges in the same court.

    Yesterday TNA questioned the motive of Njenga’s meeting saying its timing is suspect as it coincided with the official visit to Kenya of ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda.

    Bensouda arrived in the country on Sunday night and has met with President Kibaki, Prime Minister Raila Odinga as well as visiting some areas affected by the 2007-08 post-election violence.

    TNA stated that it has been negotiating with like-minded parties but Mkenya Solidarity is not one of them. Before the September 17 Kangema by-election, Njenga declared that he would back Raila’s presidential bid and joined forces to campaign for the Mkenya Solidarity candidate John Gathogo. However Gathogo performed dismally in the by-election that was won by TNA’s Tirus Ngahu.
