Mudavadi snubs CORD for KANU?
25 January 2016, 18:36
Nairobi - Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi is not new to controversial moves. The latest is an apparent attempt to link up with former party KANU.
The ANC said Monday that it would back a KANU candidate for the Kericho by elections instead of fronting its own for the position.
Why that is the case, Mudavadi's party says, is because the two parties have a similar agenda, that of dethroning the Jubilee Party from Power.
The party will back Paul Sang for the March 13 by election which will be looking to replace former Senator Charles Keter who was recently appointed Energy CS.
" We are working with KANU and we are also looking at other partnerships as well," ANC Secretary Geoffrey Osotsi told News24 Monday.

" Our mission is to dethrone the Jubilee Coalition which has truly let down Kenyans," he added.
Mudavadi has previously been linked with the Jubilee Party as well as the opposition CORD coalition but he has denied making both moves in the past, saying that he is looking forward to running for the Presidency in 2017.
" I will be a candidate on my own. I believe on my own I can change Kenya's trajectory," he stated.
Mudavadi came third in the 2013 General Elections and will join up with a KANU outfit trying to re-invent itself after years on the decline.
KANU was the ruling party in Kenya al through former President Daniel Moi's 24 year reign.
