Gideon Moi: KANU Is Strong Within Azimio La Umoja

KANU party leader Gideon Moi said the party was strong enough to form Azimio La Umoja Movement.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Moi said the party was determined to include all of them to ensure that the coalition’s presidential candidate Raila Odinga is elected Kenya’s fifth president.

Moi made the remarks a few days after attending a briefing on Raila’s inauguration where the Azimio coalition presidential candidate was naming his running mate before leaving for the SKM station on Karen Street where Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka announced his resignation from a coalition of the Declaration and also to announce its intention to run for the presidency.

However, KANU general secretary Nick Salat, speaking after Raila announced Martha Karua as his running mate in the KICC hall on Monday, said the party had no plans to leave the coalition to join other parties or stand on its own two feet.

On Monday Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka boycotted the Union One Kenya Kenya Declaration ceremony to nominate a co-candidate at the KICC hall.

Instead Kalonzo convened a parallel meeting at his Karen-based residence and announced his withdrawal from the coalition of the United One One in Kenya and that he would run for the presidency in the next general election.
