Nakuru - Rongai Member of Parliament, Raymond Moi has insisted that KANU will have its own Presidential candidate in the 2017 general election and said that they will not join any other outfit.
Speaking at Solai village on Sunday when he issued Uwezo cheques to youth groups, Moi said KANU was a unique party with a solid identity and dissolving it will be like killing national heritage.
He added that KANU was a national party with formidable structures and it was capable of mounting a Presidential campaign on its own.

“After the 2013 general elections, KANU agreed to work with the Jubilee coalition but now they have started talking about a new outfit of which we are not aware of and it must be understood that as KANU we are preparing to have our candidate on the presidential ballot in 2017. We will marshal enough resources which will enable us mount a serious campaign that will see us take back what belonged to us and that is power. We will do it on our own and we will not need any coalition,” said Moi.
Rongai KANU branch chairman, John Karasinga said soon KANU will start countrywide campaigns to register new members in preparation for 2017.
“We are not a small party and we will prove this in 2017 because the great power and might of KANU will be reborn in 2017 and those who think KANU is dead will come running back,” said Karasinga.
