The Kenya African National Union(KANU) party is the longest-loving political party in the country. It is the first party to take Kenya to independence and ruled the country for more than 30 years. It however went dormant when section 2A of the constitution was reappeared allowing for multi-party democracy.
And now, Kenyans have been left speculating after the party leadership led by its leader Hon Gideon Moi who doubles as the Baringo County Senator unveiled a new strategy to make the party rule the country for another 50 years.
The outspoken Senator while speaking during an interview with the STANDARD media today, has claimed that the party has not fielded a presidential candidate for more than 20 years and things were about to change. According to him, KANU delegates will convene at the Bomas of Kenya this week to chart the direction the party will take ahead of the 2022 general election.
"Our goal is to make KANU retain its lost glory by reaching out to the people on the grassroots level by making mass recruitments. We are hoping to have at least a candidate in every political seat across the country," Senator Moi Said.
His sentiments were supported by Fafi Constituency member of parliament Hon Abdulkarim Osman who claimed that KANU will rule the country for another 50 years with Gideon Moi as the president.
" We are going to endorse Gideon Moi as our preferred 2022 presidential candidate as we debunk on a serious journey to make KANU rule for another 50 years," Hon Osman said.
