Amani National Congress (ANC) party Secretary General Simon Gikuru has refuted claims by Mathira Member of parliament Rigathi Gachagua that William Ruto is the presidential candidate for Kenya Kwanza Coalition.

According to ANC, Kenya Kwanza Coalition was meant to erase ethnic animosity through mature politics devoid of toxic divisive narratives.


“it is, therefore, our considered opinion that Hon.Rigathi Gachagua should transition from UDA mindset to enhance the broader picture of Kenya Kwanza Philosophy,” The Statement by ANC read.

ANC Party insisted that Kenya Kwanza has not decided on its presidential and running mate candidates.

“In this regard, Hon. Rigathi Gachagua has no authority to speak for Kenya Kwanza on the matter hence his sentiments are premature, untimely, and unwarranted.”

In an interview with Citizen TV, Gachagua said that the Mount Kenya region will produce William Ruto’s running mate.

“When they came for discussion we were very fort-right because we are honest people. They were told that we agreed that running mate is from the mountain (Mt Kenya region),” Gachagua said.
