Independent party Kenya African National Union (Kanu) will have a presidential candidate in 2022.

Bungoma county Kanu interim officials said that the current Baringo Senator and Kanu party leader is their presidential candidate.

Kanu has been in hibernation for 18 years and has never had a presidential candidate since the late president Daniel Moi was defeated by Mwai Kibaki in 2002.

The party which has been rebranded to Kanu Fresh will kickstart its recruitment drive to fill all electable seats in the county.

Addressing the press in Bungoma town on September 16, the party county interim Chairman Leonard Muyelele and the acting secretary General Benedict Emacar said that they will drum up support for their party 2022.

“Our people should understand that Kanu fresh is back, we intend to move around the county to sell our party and ensure that Senator Moi wins the presidency in 2022,” said Muyelele.

He stated that they will have candidates in all electable positions in 2022 to ensure they compete with other parties.

“Kanu has been missing in Bungoma county for the last 18 years, we need to make an impact through filling all the electable positions,” he said.

Emacar said that they have build structures of the party up to the apex.

“We support our presidential candidate Gideon Moi and we will campaign for him until he ascends to power in 2022,” he said.

He said that Kanu has been in hibernation for 18 years and they have come out of slumber and will now reclaim their place.

“We welcome all aspirants in different categories and encouraged youths and women to vie for various seats,” said Muyelele.

He added, “We support our party leader because he is a non controversial leader who will steer the country to a better future,”.

The interim officials also stated clearly that they will support the BBI to help come up with a constitution that will accommodate all Kenyans.

Emacar said that they will support and convince every Kenyan to propel the party with the slogan Peace, Love and Unity to enjoy a sizeable support in the coming years.

Grace Opati the Kanu woman representative candidate in 2022 asked all women and youths to support the newly rebranded party that can propel them to better things.

“Am calling on my fellow women and youths to support Kanu because it is a party of diversity and inclusiveness, we don’t segregate any person,” she advised.
