Just In: KANU Dealt a Blow as Nick Salat Leads Mass Exodus to UDA

Evidently, the ruling UDA party's unrelenting quest to weaken their Azimio rivals by winning ardent members to dump their coalition is proving to be successful going by the fate that has befallen the independence party, KANU.

The independence party is now on the risk of becoming a shell party after falling victim of mass defections to UDA.

Dozens of its members drawn from the women league led by former secretary general Nick Salat have today shifted allegiance to the ruling party in a televised event at Hustler Centre along Makindi Road in Nairobi.

The defectors argued that UDA has proved beyond reasonable doubt that it takes care of the welfare of women leaders as compared to Azimio, hence their decision to shift camps.

They also slammed Azimio coalition for spearheading mass action with his a bid of frustrating president William Ruto's administration.

It should be remembered that long serving Kanu secretary general Nick Salat resigned from the party barely a month ago after he fell out with party leader Gideon Moi.

His resignation came a week after the party expelled him following a disciplinary process instituted by the National disciplinary committee.

Before finally bowing out, Salat put a fight as he termed his expulsion by the party unlawful.

"It is in my position that my purported dismissal from the position of Secretary General as communicated through the press was unlawful and against the rules of natural justice". He said.
