Ford Kenya party is set to make some key changes to strengthen it ahead of the 2022 general elections.
The party management committee agreed that there is an urgent need for key changes as there are officials who have resigned in the run-up to the Matungu and Kabuchai by-elections.
The Management Committee meeting held at KICC was chaired by Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang'ula.
The meeting was also attended by more than half of the members where they discussed a number of issues, including the Kabuchai by-elections.
Chris Mandu Mandu, the Ford Kenya National Organizing Secretary said that the changes will help fill the gaps left out by the resigned members.
"There is no vacuum in the party, all posts must be refilled to enable the party run its business as agreed upon," he said.
Mr Bernard Wakoli who until his resignation was the leader of the National Youth League will be replaced by Chekai Musa alias Kanali.
Wakoli resigned from FK to vie for the Matungu parliamentary seat following the demise of area Mp Justus Murunga.
Chekai will oversee the post until the National Delegates Conference is held. Mr Peter Kapanga Until his resignation, was the NEC member for county coordination where the post will be held by Mr Steve Apopo until the party's NDC.
Kapanga is vying for the Kabuchai parliamentary seat as an independent candidate following the death of James Lusweti.
"We take this opportunity to congratulate those who have had the opportunity to take to the helm and wish them all the best in their service," said Mandu Mandu.
Ford Kenya has faced a lot of challenges following the coup that was undertaken by a group allied to Kanduyi Mp Wafula Wamunyinyi.
The matter is currently pending in court.
