KANU divided over anti-IEBC protests

21 May 2016, 18:59 Samuel arap Yego

Nairobi - Kanu leaders continue to back the stand of nominated Senator Zipporah Kittony concerning the involvement of the independence party in the ongoing Opposition demonstrations.

Senator Zipporah Kittony on Thursday dismissed her party's involvement in the anti-Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission protests (IEBC) led by CORD, saying it was not a collective agreement.

Kanu officials from Trans-Nzoia County led by Chairman Pius Arap Kauka on Saturday said they are in agreement with Kittony's sentiments and distanced themselves from their national Secretary General Nick Salat.

Salat was on Monday among the leaders that were teargased by police alongside CORD chief Raila Odinga in Nairobi. The official in subsequent interviews maintained that Kanu will join subsequent protests called by opposition leaders.

"Our party since inception has not been involved in chaos. We follow the law and as Kanu members we believe dialogue is the only way to end the stalemate," he said.

Kauka, who is also a former Kitale Mayor appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to heed to calls for dialogue, noting that the current grandstanding from both the government and opposition is not good for the country.

Senator Kittony while disassociating Kanu from the opposition protests insisted that the presence Salat in the Monday protests should not be generalized to mean the whole party had joined in the demos.

"If our party leader was seen together with CORD leaders, then it is just by default. What happened in the demo was purely on personal grounds," she said during a funds drive at the Kenya Girl Guides Association offices in Nairobi.

While defending his decision to join the demos, Salat clarified that his move does not mean his party had joined Cord.

"Joining our Cord colleagues who started the protests earlier doesn't mean we are joining the coalition; we are joining them in demanding that the IEBC officials should step aside," explained Salat on Monday during an interview on KTN.

He warned that with the 2017 general election drawing close, the country risks sliding back to the 2007/2008 Post Election Violence (PEV), pointing out heading to the elections with the current body is likely to result into chaos.

"For the sake of the country, we are asking the IEBC team to step aside. Kenyans are not ready to go into another election with a body whose credibility is questionable. An election that will be flawed is bound to set the country aflame," cautioned Mr Salat.
