The Kenya African National Union (KANU) has suspended its Secretary-General Nick Salat over alleged violation of the Party's Constitution.

KANU Chairperson Gideon Moi, in a notice on Thursday, December 15, said the suspension followed a decision by the National Executive Council (NEC) after several complaints against Salat were made.

"You (Salat) are hereby suspended forthwith from carrying out and/or performing your duties as the Party's Secretary-General pending the determination of the disciplinary proceedings," said Gideon Moi.

Salat is accused of misconduct and breach of the Party's Constitution.

His fate now lies with the disciplinary committee, which will summon, listen to the accused and submit a report to KANU within 30 days.
