The National Executive Council (NEC) of KANU has completed the process of kicking out its former Secretary General Nick Salat by replacing him with George Wainaina.
Salat resigned from the party last month after being kicked out through a unanimous decision by the party’s National Executive Council (NEC). His fortunes at the independence party fell after he attended a Kenya Kwanza rally in Bomet in December last year.
“It is in my position that my purported dismissal from the position of secretary-general as communicated through the press was unlawful and against the rules of natural justice. However, and pursuant to section 14 of the Political Parties Act, I hereby with heavy heart but with a clear conscience, tender my resignation from the Kanu party effective the date specified hereunder,” said Salat in his resignation letter.
He added: “Take notice, therefore, that I, Nicholas Salat, have resigned from the Kanu party and therefore disassociate myself with the party except in situations where the law permits after this notice.”
