The Amani National Congress Party, ANC is set to begin its countrywide recruitment of new members beginning April this year.
The move is aimed at strengthening the party ahead of a major transition that is expected to take place within the party in restructuring the party both at the grass root and at the national level.
Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has hinted at a major shake-up that is going to take place within the ANC Party in a view of consolidating its base as it seeks to command the support of all regions in the country with an aim of propelling ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi to the top seat in the country.
“We will seriously embark on a nationwide recruitment drive next month. We want to make sure we reach out to all Kenyans in all regions and sell our agenda with an aim of getting on board as many members as possible. We want to ensure that all communities in all regions of our country are walking with Musalia Mudavadi.” Said Malala.
Malala says in order to gain the support of other communities apart from the Western for Musalia Mudavadi’s presidential ambitions, much has to be done and this is the solemn reason the recruitment drive is happening early enough as the ANC Party continues to position itself as the party of choice come 2022.
Malala was quick to point out that after he reconciled with the ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi after differing on a few ideological stands, time has now come for the Amani Party to also consider making key changes at its national secretariat and offices in order to accommodate as many like-minded leaders as possible and also to give the party’s leadership the true face of Kenya.
“You will notice that we are currently having various vacant positions within ANC Party. We don’t have a substantive Secretary General for example. What I am appealing to the party is to ensure that we have a national outlook when filling these positions and soon Kenyans will see this happening.” Said Malala.
Malala who has been touted to have been on the fore front during the Matungu Mini polls where Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC party clinched the seat, has recently been vocal on issues pertaining the party and Mudavadi’s Presidential ambitions after closing ranks with the party leader late last year after months of disquiet between them.
Malala has now come out as a strong defdner of Mudavadi’s 2022 presidentail ambitions.
“Soon you will see me walking with Mheshimiwa Zedekia Bundotich Buzeki, I have already reached out to him and he is willing to join our team. I have also approached Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina he is among those ones in the transfer window and all those who share in our vision we will welcome them. The Musalia Mudavadi agenda is what we are focusing on and Kenyans are realising this is the way to go.” Said Malala.
The latest engagements by the Kakamega Senator are said to be part of the major fixes that ANC Party will be considering even as it seeks to form new alliances or coalitions with like-minded political friends like KANU, FORD K and Wiper.
Already, a hint on a new emerging formation in the offing is on high gear after the four principles, Musalia Mudavadi of ANC, Moses Wetangula of FORD K, Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper Party and Gideon Moi of KANU joined hands and efforts in the just concluded by elections in Matungu, Kabuchai and Machakos where ANC, FORD K and Wiper won the seat respectively.
