Kanu to field can­di­date for Pres­i­dent in 2022

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Kanu will field a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date in 2022, nom­i­nated Se­na­tor Zip­po­rah Kit­tony has said.

She said the party will back Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta’s re­elec­tion in 2017, but is groom­ing its can­di­date for 2022. Kit­tony spoke dur­ing a fundraiser at Ki­turo in Baringo Cen­tral. She said the party is strong and has pre­pared it­self to win many Sen­ate and gover­nor seats. “Kanu is vi­brant. We have put strate­gies in place that will see us grab more political po­si­tions,” Kit­tony said, adding the party has be­come more pop­u­lar.

She warned those who think the In­de­pen­dence party is dead will be shocked to see it re­gain its for­mer glory. Kit­tony said Kanu is more pop­u­lar in Baringo than the Ju­bilee Party. She ac­cused the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion of ram­pant cor­rup­tion. Kit­tony urged Baringo lead­ers to join Kanu or else pre­pare to be voted out. She asked, “Why should you aban­don your home­grown party and run af­ter alien par­ties, which will leave you des­o­late?”
