Baringo Senator Gideon Moi’s party, Kanu, aims to take control of the second phase of the talks on the Building Bridges Initiative report in the Rift Valley.
This comes as the outfit seeks to stamp its authority in a region at a crossroads over the next course of political action after the report was released last November.
Kanu, led by Mr Moi, was quick to express its support for the ‘handshake’ between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga in March 2018.
The independence party also backed the BBI team when it faced a barrage of accusations from Deputy President William Ruto and his allies for over a year.
The party now wants to be the face of the BBI in the region in a bid to fend off the DP, who has recently changed tune and welcomed the report.
