Barely a month after the repeat presidential election, which Mr Odinga boycotted, internal dissent has erupted over sharing of key parliamentary positions and the nominees to the East African Legislative Assembly.
Rivalry between the two leaders is also expected to take centrestage at the international community-backed national dialogue, which will be midwifed in January by the business community, trade unions, civil society and clerics.
According to Nasa, the agenda of the proposed dialogue does not address their concerns, which is mainly political and socio-economic as the group had suggested.
