Baringo Senator Gideon Moi-led party KANU has signed post-election instead of pre-election agreement with Jubilee party leader Uhuru Kenyatta that was to be deposited to the political party registrar before the 2017 elections.

The Move comes barely a day before the first parliamentary meeting in the jubilee party since the second term office begun.

KANU has been voting with the ruling party as a bloc and has its members seconded to House committees by virtue of the Jubilee Party strength.

Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju said that the pre-election agreement had not been deposited with the Registrar of Political Parties as required by law.

"It was supposed to be deposited as soon as the pre-election deal was done, but some people just did not do their jobs,” Mr Tuju said.

"So to avoid any challenge and any ambiguity, the two parties have chosen the path of a post-election agreement to formalise the relationship they already have,” he added.

Kanu has 10 MPs in the National Assembly while Mr Moi, West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio and nominated senator Abshiro Soka Halake fly the Kanu flag in the Senate.

The agreement between the two parties was confirmed by the Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu on May 8.

"This is to certify that Jubilee Party and Kanu, fully registered political parties under the Political Parties Act, 2011, deposited a coalition agreement. Form PP 19 was filed on May 4, 2020 by the chairmen and secretary generals of the two parties,” said Ms Nderitu
