Kanu needs to change before mergers

KANU: Reform before Mergers.

Since the release of the recent IRI poll showing that a majority of Kenyans support coalition governments, there has been a lot of pressure on the KANU chairman Uhuru Kenyatta to rejoin ODM [EA Standard 13th July]

However, before running to form a pre-electoral coalition, Mr. Kenyatta and the KANU leadership need rebuild and reform the party. KANU needs a structural and philosophical rebirth, which would overhaul her dysfunctional grass roots’ system and reconcile her national leadership. The party also needs to differentiate herself from other parties by developing a strong ideological identity and consistent policy prescriptions to solve Kenya’s problems.

Once the party resolves her internal dysfunctions, she would be in a much stronger position to negotiate coalition partnerships. Or if necessary go it alone.
