"Watu Wasishtuke" Gov. Lonyangapuo Begins Popularising New Party After Ditching KANU

West Pokot governor John Lonyangapuo has commenced activities to popularize his new Kenya Union Party, which he says is an alternative house for pastoralist communities in the region.

During a meeting with other leaders from Tiaty, Baringo County, Lonyangapuo and like-minded individuals deliberated on activities the party can involve itself in, in an effort to popularise the party in the region and rival KANU.

They also spoke on forming the possibility of partnering with other parties to form a coalition as we head to the 2022 general elections.

"Miaka zijazo hakuna chama moja itakuja kushinda pekee yake, itakuwa 'coalition of friendly parties' sasa watu wasishtuke" Lonyangapuo said.

KUP seeks to address and negotiate powerful pastoral ommunities and other like-minded communities who have been marginalized for long in the sharing of the national cake. 

Lonyangapuo recently left KANU, citing frustrations from the leadership. According to the county boss, there was a plot to sabotage his administration through the county assembly.

He was the only governor in the party.
