Amani National Congress (ANC) party has dispelled rumours doing rounds that there will be zoning in Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
Addressing the press, Bungoma County ANC Chairman Martin Waliaula made it clear that they will only support a presidential candidate but all parties are free to field any candidate anywhere in the country.
“I have heard of the rumours doing rounds that may be Bungoma County is reserved for Ford Kenya party, let me assure my aspirants that let them prepare to vie for various seats,” he said.
Waliaula accused Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula of misleading his supporters that they are already candidates and asked him to be candid enough and tell them that they will face ANC candidates in the ballot.
“There will be no zoning in Kenya Kwanza Alliance, every party has a free hand to field any candidate from the senator, governor, woman Rep, members of Parliament and MCAs, we will only support one presidential candidate,” said the region’s Chairman.
He observed that each party will fight for elective slots arguing that let the partner parties brace for a tough duel.
He asked aspirants planning to vie for different elective posts to to clear with ANC offices because time is running out.
“We have limited time, if you wish to vie on ANC make sure that you clear with our offices so that you are legible to vie on August 9,” said Waliaula.
He was also perturbed by Uhuru’ s sentiments during the Sagana 3 retreat where he used his local dialect while addressing the masses.
“The President is a symbol of unity and dignity, he should not turn into a tribal King because he was elected by all of Kenyans,” he stated.
Waliaula also noted that Kenya kwanza Alliance leaders will defeat opposition leader Raila Odinga in the next polls arguing that he has frustrated Luhyas leaders in the past.
“Raila has proved to be a failure, and he is going to be defeated by Kenya Kwanza leaders, we will make sure he goes back to political Oblivion,” he said.
He observed that Kenya Kwanza leaders are yet to name a presidential candidate and all the principals have equal opportunities.
“Our Presidential candidate will be unveiled at an opportune time, at the moment talks are underway and you will know who will square out with Raila,” he said.
