The party secretary-general Nick Salat on Saturday announced plans to revive it by reopening its offices across the country to reactivate and restore its national connections.

Speaking at the Alps Hotel in Nakuru, Salat also announced pending party elections, adding that there is need for the party to restructure its structures and organs ahead of the polls.

"The party needs to rebuild itself and reactivate its branch networks across the country with the intention of strengthening in order for it to participate in the next general election,” he was quoted by the Standard.

He added that the Baringo Senator Gideon Moi-led bloc remains in support of the President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga truce, and will work with them in their union.

Salat noted that KANU is also in full support of President Uhuru Kenyatta's Big 4 legacy agenda, and will work with like minded persons also in support of the same.

He spoke during the close of a two day meeting attended by elected and nominated leaders from across the country and other national officials, in a forum that was presided over by Moi.
