KANU has promised to hold the government to account while offering constructive criticisms and alternative policy propositions, as an opposition party in Parliament.

In his new year's message to Kenyans, KANU National Chairman Gideon Moi said the party is keen on enhancing its operational efficiency and revitalizing itself through spearheading people-centred political initiatives.

"The new year, 2023 therefore, must be a radically different year for us. We look forward to a year of economic prosperity for the majority who are in the poverty level to the middle-income level. We must remind the government consistently of its many promises to the people," Gideon's statement read in part.

At the same time, the KANU chairman has challenged the Kenya Kwanza government to remove burdens that exclude the majority from economic prosperity adding that Kenyans are still grappling with high cost of living, punitive taxes among other challenges.
