In two monthsâ time, the party will conduct grassroots elections as it seeks to rebrand ahead of the next General Election.
The DPM accused Salat of being an impediment as the party seeks to comply with the laws by failing to withdraw a court case he had filed stopping membership recruitment drive.
But Salat in a quick rejoinder said the case he filed related to the alleged withdrawal of Sh8 million from the partyâs bank accounts which was used to print membership cards by a company owned by some party officers in total disregard to procurement rules.
"I reported the matter at Kilimani Police Station, the Criminal Investigations Department, the Nairobi Provincial Police Officer, Kenya Anti-Corruption Authority and the Auditor General because the money was from the exchequer," claimed Salat.
However, he said the case had been overtaken by events as the orders he secured expired after three weeks. He maintained the procurement was done through single sourcing.
Salat refuted claims that Kanu was on its death bed. "We have fast-tracked the compliance efforts and we have registered 1,000 members in 29 Counties and opened 38 offices. We started the compliance process late as the former chairman remained aloof and did not answer phone calls and correspondence on pertinent issues which would have propelled us forward," Salat said.
Uhuru said in a statement last Thursday that he would not be seeking any elective post in Kanu owing to the fact that he was a state officer.
"I made it clear to the Kanu NEC that it is my desire to seek elective office in the coming general election (read Presidency). As a result, and in compliance with the new Constitution and the Political Parties Act that no State officer can hold a party position, I will, therefore, not seek any position in Kanu," he stated.
Uhuru said the party has had challenges which he wanted resolved to prevent it from demise and that he was happy to see the people who had been an impediment had taken pro-active steps.
