Elec­tion hope­fuls should ditch ‘over­pop­u­lated’ Cord and Ju­bilee, join Amani for fair polls – ANC of­fi­cial

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Amani Na­tional Congress lead­ers want politi­cians to ditch “over­pop­u­lated” Cord and Ju­bilee coali­tions to join their party.

“Amani Na­tional Congress is a peace­ful coali­tion. Cord and Ju­bilee are over­pop­u­lated,” Amani Coast sec­re­tary gen­eral Jimmy Azangu said on Thursday.

He spoke at the Malindi Air­port . Azangu was in the area to fi­nalise prepa­ra­tions for party leader Musalia Mu­davadi’s visit.

Mu­davadi is ex­pected at the Coast to hunt votes from Sun­day and he will wel­come 50 as­pi­rants who have ex­ited Cord and UDF.

Se­nior party of­fi­cials said they wel­come the de­ci­sion of Lamu Gov­er­nor Issa Ti­mamy to join ANC.

Azangu told jour­nal­ists ANC is the only party that has no com­pe­ti­tion and will give as­pi­rants a fair chance dur­ing nom­i­na­tions.

When ques­tioned about spec­u­la­tion ANC had plans to join Cord, Azangu said they will cross that bridge when time comes.

He said, how­ever, that Mu­davadi will be on the pres­i­den­tial bal­lot in 2017.
