No Jubilee deal, Moi says
22 March 2016, 19:15
Nairobi - KANU boss Gideon Moi says any talk of him joining the Jubilee Coalition is hogwash.
There has been talk that the son of Kenya's former President will join the Coalition to boost their mood ahead of the 2017 General elections.
KANU was a part of the Jubilee Coalition in the 2013 polls but there has since been a falling out between the two sides.
And despite efforts by President Uhuru Kenyatta to help heal the wounds by organizing talks, he is not going anywhere.
" There is no end to KANU. They (Jubilee) are either in KANU or out of KANU," he told News24 of his said exit.
" This is Kenya's oldest political platform and that will not change with it being dissolved by a recent one. That is not going to happen," he added.
KANU is gaining popularity in the rift in the wake of continued issues pounding the ruling coalition and Moi is happy to oversee the revival of fortunes.
" They said KANU was dead but as we can see, that is nowhere near the case," he added.
KANU is not certain to host a Presidential candidate come the 2017 polls though and Moi says that consultations are ongoing.
" The talks are ongoing," he added.
KANU did not field a Presidential candidate in the 2017 elections.
