KANU leaders reveal next move after being left out of Uhuru’s Cabinet

Nick Salat reveals what KANU will do to Jubilee after missing cabinet slots

KANU secretary general Nick Salat noted that the party was forgotten in the recently announced Cabinet even as other Jubilee affiliate parties got slots in the cabinet.

“As Kanu we are and shall continue being loyal to Jubilee even if we were forgotten in the Cabinet slots. We saw CCM, PNU get something and we are yet to get anything but we hope we shall get something in the remaining positions,” Salat said.

KANU entered a pre-election pact with Jubilee which saw the two parties work together for President Kenyatta’s reelection.

However, the rivalry between the two parties surfaced on several occasions with their supporters clashing.

The shacky relationship between Jubilee and KANU surfaced again with Emurua Dikirr legislator Johana Ng’eno hitting out at a section of Jubilee leaders for sponsoring petitions against his win.

Ng’eno noted that he aggressively campaigned for President Kenyatta who got 22000 votes in his constituency but was surprised realized that “a petition against me (Ng'eno) had been filed by Jubilee competitor (David Keter)”.

The leaders who were speaking at Emurua Dikirr at a fete to celebrate Ng'eno's win urged President Kenyatta to consider the South Rift and Kipsigis community in future cabinet appointments.

KANU had submitted a list of nominees to be considered for Cabinet slots, a move that was reportedly opposed by Deputy President William Ruto’s allies.
