Even as wrangles threaten to tear apart the ruling Jubilee Party, the Kenya African National Union (Kanu) which is led by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, has intensified a grassroots campaign in the South Rift in a bid to solidify its popularity in the region.
The Nation has established that after public gatherings were banned last month due to the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, Kanu has rolled out a series of online campaigns seeking to revamp itself ahead of the 2022 General Elections.
Leading the drive is a group of youth allied to the party under the banner Youth for Kanu, akin to Youth for Kanu ‘92.
Nakuru Kanu Branch Chairman Kimani Wa Kimani, who is leading the drive, revealed that the move is meant to revitalise the party which ruled for 39 years between 1963 and 2002 and give it fresh blood that can propel it back to power in 2022.
“We have gone full cycle and we have laid down strategies to propel our leader Senator Gideon Moi to take power in 2022. We have rolled out online campaigns to popularise the party and outshine our rivals in the region, even as we observe social distancing to tame the spread of the coronavirus as advised by the Ministry of Health,” said Mr Kimani.
