Aspirants flocking to ANC urged to stay in the party and brace for nominations

ANC party will not hand any direct nominations to aspirants seeking different seats in the next elections, a leader allied to the party has said.

Khwisero MP Christopher Aseka dismissed claims that the party had its favourite candidates. Aseka said the party would hold free and fair nominations in Kakamega County to ensure justice to all the aspirants.

He said the increasing number of aspirants flocking to the party was a confirmation that it was growing stronger. "ANC is a democratic and peaceful party that can not engage in practices that would taint its image and ideals that it stands for. So nobody should claim that we have any favourite candidates," he said.

Speaking in his constituency when he inspected various development projects including roads and schools, Aseka said he and his fellow sitting legislators were also ready to face any opposition in the party primaries come next year.

He said ANC's main agenda was to ensure its leader Musalia Mudavadi succeeded President Uhuru Kenyatta. The party has attracted the highest number of aspirants eyeing governorship, the Senate and all other elective positions.

Aseka urged Luhyas to back Mudavadi unconditionally and allow him to galvanise for support in all parts of the country. "Luhyas are on the brink of history because they have a formidable presidential candidate who is acceptable across the country. They should rally behind him without any second thoughts," he added.
