KANU leader Gideon Moi was hosted by Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho on Thursday night at his Nyali residence. The Baringo senator is on his third-day tour of the region which kicked off in Kwale on Wednesday.
According to a source from the county of Mombasa, Senator Moi was accompanied by his party’s Secretary-General Nick Salat whereas MP Abdulswamad Sharrif Nassir of Mvita was with Joho.
”He flew in from Kilifi and met KANU delegates. Their meeting happened thereafter and it was politics. Mvita MP and Nick Salat were also around,” the source confides to this publication.
The KANU leader has been meeting delegates of the independence party from the four counties.
”For far too long, coast region has been on the sidelines of national conversations about the future of our country. It’s time we do different by mainstreaming their voices through public participation in the economic development agenda,” the senator tweeted on Friday.
Speaking in Mombasa, Gideon said the independent party will do things differently as it seeks to return to power after 19 years, promising an earth-shattering announcement next week.
“The journey began from the Coast and it will end on September 30 when the delegates will make ‘extremely shocking pronouncement’. This is exactly what we need,” the Baringo senator said.
KANU delegates will converge at the Bomas of Kenya on Thursday next week where they will unveil their presidential candidate.
