Wednesday May 6, 2020 – Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has intensified a grassroots campaigns in a bid to solidify his popularity ahead of 2022.
This comes at a time the ruling Jubilee Party is facing a big rebellion that is threatening to split Jubilee into two and ostensibly spoil Deputy President William Ruto’s chances of ascending to the Presidency.
Gideon has launched an online drive after public gatherings were banned last month due to the Covid19 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.
“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, the Nakuru Kanu chairman.
He revealed that after the coronavirus pandemic is contained, the youth will hit the ground and visit every constituency in the region to drum up support for their party leader.
“Once the country is declared free of the coronavirus disease, the party will embark on a massive re-branding ahead of 2022,” added Mr Kimani.
Kanu members familiar with the rejuvenation drive also confirmed that the planned activities will culminate in the renaming of the party to Kanu-Fresh in a bid to make the Jogoo party great again.
“Kanu grows stronger every day and it is the only party that has been producing representatives in Parliament since independence.”
“We will continue marshalling support for the independence party,” stated Mr Wanjohi Muhoho.
The youth are conducting the drive on various social media platforms such as WhatsApp and Facebook groups and Twitter, which have become popular with people.
A WhatsApp group dubbed ‘Friends of Gideon’ and another one dubbed ‘Gideon Moi Foot Soldiers’ have been launched to popularise Kanu and its leader, Senator Moi.
