There was confusion on Thursday after KANU nominated its Chairman Gideon Moi just hours after the senator nominated former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka.
“Kanu hereby proposes and submits the name of H.E Hon. Stephen Kalonzo as its preferred candidate for the position of Deputy President in the forthcoming general elections,” Moi stated in the letter to the selection panel.
However, KANU Sec Gen Nick Salat followed up with another letter saying holds an impeccable record in public service.
“Gideon Moi is also an astute businessman with extensive local and international networks that will be employed and deployed by the Azimio government to attract the much needed investment in Kenya in order to grow the economy,” Salat told the selection panel.
