Nairobi - KANU Secretary General, Nick Salat has been accused of trying to sell the independence party to CORD leader, Raila Odinga.
KANU Nakuru branch officials accused Salat of painting the party in bad light by purporting to represent the party at CORD's anti-IEBC protests.
Led by branch chairman John Ngunjiri, the officials threatened to call for a special delegates meeting to vote out Salat as the Secretary General of the party.
Speaking Sunday in Nakuru town, Ngunjiri said that Salat was paid by Raila to participate in the protests.

"Salat is betraying the party by engaging in the protests and by associating KANU with the protests, he is selling the party to CORD and we will not allow that to happen," said Ngunjiri.
"Even as much as we support the calls for change at the IEBC, we are not in support of the protests and Salat must know that if he continues dragging the name of KANU into the protests, we will be forced to summon delegates to remove him from his position," he added.
Salat has attended the last two anti-IEBC protests organised by the CORD. KANU has also been calling for change at the polls body following what it termed as a bungled Kericho senatorial by election where they claimed their candidate was rigged out by Jubilee.
