The leadership of the Kenyan African National Union (KANU) has announced that it will run a candidate for the presidency in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
At a meeting with delegates in Mombasa on Thursday, September 23, the party’s general secretary Nick Salat said they would introduce their presidential candidate at the upcoming annual general meeting.
“KANU will be a party to be reckoned with in the upcoming elections and we are ready to fight. Let’s go back to the peace we had during our tenure, ”said Salat.
The party will meet its delegates from across the country on Thursday September 30th in Bomas, Kenya, where they will introduce their preferred candidates.
However, while speaking to the more than 400 delegates on the coast, Salat indicated that the party leader would run for the presidency under the KANU ticket.
“We don’t need an aggressive leader. We need a person who is ready to serve the country, not in the way that some have proven aggressive, and they want to do so by force, ”said Salat.
Salat’s remarks come hours after delegates met the party’s national chairman Gideon Moi at a meeting in Diani, Kwale County, Wednesday, April 23.
Delegates said Gideon was a sober leader and best placed to bring fresh blood to government in the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
