Nakuru - The Kenya African National union party (KANU) has denied entering into any pre-election pact with Raila Odinga's party ODM.
KANU Nakuru branch chairman John Ngunjiri dismissed the reports that appeared in a section of the media alleging that the party had entered into an MoU with ODM.
Speaking Sunday at Nakuru town, Ngunjiri said that KANU is still part of the Jubilee coalition and does not have any plans to work with CORD.
Ngunjiri said that the party Secretary General Nick Salat has no powers to negotiate and talk about the party, something he said can only be done by the party's NDC and the NGC.

"There are reports that KANU has entered a pre-election pact with ODM and I want to state here that there is nothing of the sort and I don't think it will happen anytime soon," said Ngunjiri.
"KANU is still part of the Jubilee coalition and that will stand until the 2017 elections are called but as for now, we shall continue supporting Jubilee," he said.
At the same time, KANU lashed at Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri for leading rowdy youth in storming and disrupting CORD leader Raila Odinga's meeting in Nakuru on Saturday.
"What happened on Saturday was shameful and we are disappointed that a respected member of Parliament can lead youths to disrupt a peaceful meeting and we want to condemn that act as a party," he said.
