Speaking during a meeting with KANU delegates from Kakamega held on Sunday, January 10, Moi noted that the loss, orchestrated by land grabbers, had slowed down plans for expanding the party networks across the country.
The statement was also confirmed by the Kakamega branch chair Chacha Weche who pointed out that party properties in Kakamega and Busia counties had either been grabbed or risk being grabbed.
According to Weche, about 16 business structures on the plot of land owned by the party, were demolished by the county government in October 2018.
He also noted that another plot worth over ksh40 million was in danger of being grabbed.
Senator Moi, however, noted that the party had made strides to recover its property.
“We managed to recover property worth ksh4 million and our party lawyer will take over all cases involving the party,” Moi stated.
During the meeting, the senator revealed that plans were put in place to strengthen KANU and make it a political force in the upcoming 2022 elections.
This, he pointed out, would be achieved by launching a drive that would recruit members, primarily youth and women.
The senator further announced that he would be visiting KANU delegates from across the country as they discuss strategies for the party’s growth.
“We have a committed and capable team ready to work with you (KANU delegates) in expanding our party network all over Kenya because there is a bright future for KANU,” Moi stated.
The delegates also advocated for the opening of party offices in 12 sub-counties to enhance the growth of the party within the grassroots.
Moi has been ramping up his political activities ahead of the 2022 General elections. Speculations are strife that Moi might be eyeing the Presidential seat in the elections.
This has seen the senator tour various counties as he drummed up support for the Building Bridges Initative (BBI) as well as revive old KANU networks.
