Nairobi — Kanu held a stormy Parliamentary Group meeting ahead of the National Delegates Conference (NDC) next week to endorse its corporate membership in ODM-Kenya.
Vice-chairman Mr Chris Okemo told off his colleagues opposed to Thursday's party officials' seminar and the NDC which was proposed by the party National Executive Committee (NEC) last Monday.
The PG meeting was also briefed of today's meeting of four Kanu officials from each branch to discuss matters related to the activities of the forthcoming NDC.
On Wednesday, Secretary general Mr William Ruto said after the meeting that the PG was convened to brief the MPs on the NEC decision on corporate membership.
Ruto said at a news conference at Parliament Buildings that the decision would be tabled at the NDC on November 23 for ratification and endorsement.
Okemo, Ruto, treasurer Mr Billow Kerrow and MPs Musa Sirma, Gideon Moi, Yusuf Haji among others, attended.
The Kanu MPs allied to Keiyo South MP Mr Nicholas Biwott' group did not attend the PG. Chairman Mr Uhuru Kenyatta chaired the NEC that agreed on corporate membership on Monday.
A section of Kanu delegates recently held a National Governing Council meeting and banned Uhuru, Ruto, Okemo and other Kanu leaders from transacting any business with ODM-Kenya on behalf of the party.
The Biwott group has called another NDC on November 24.
Kanu secretariat has begun updating the list of delegates for the next weeks' NDC.
But Ruto was busy last night handling the registers for the delegates.
