KANU members challenge party leaders to accept Kericho mini-poll results


KANU members challenge party leaders to accept Kericho mini-poll results

The Kenya African National Union (KANU)  members from Isiolo county  have called upon its leadership to accept the results of the Kericho Senatorial by-election and move on.

The members want the party chairman Gideon Moi and the Secretary General Nick Salat to accept the by-election results to forge forward for the future benefit of the party.

Led by Isiolo South KANU secretary Hussein Abduba, the leaders said that they have faith in the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) as it is the only acceptable body on matters election.

The leaders stated that those challenging the results of the Kericho Senatorial election were confusing Kenyans.

They claimed that Moi and Salat were going against the rules and Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between KANU and the Jubilee coalition during the last General Election.

Abduba challenged the duo to convene the National Delegates conference for the members to deliberate on the issue as most members would not wish to be in the opposition.

They threatened to ditch the party should the national leaders fail to convene the National Delegates meeting.

The statement came hours after the Elections Observation Group (ELOG) gave a clean bill of health to the Kericho and Malindi by-elections. While dismissing KANU’s claims that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) rigged the Kericho mini-poll in favour of Jubilee, the group, however, pointed out that several cases of voter bribery were reported.
