National Rainbow Coalition Party will field a presidential candidate in next year’s General elections, party leader Charity Ngilu has said.
Mrs Ngilu said party delegates will meet later this year to pick their presidential candidate, though she was non-committal on whether she will vie for the seat.
“I have done it before and I could do it again next year,” said Mrs Ngilu, who dismissed leaders seeking to unite for the sake of defeating a particular individual.
Mrs Ngilu clarified that though she is a Cabinet minister through ODM, she is not a member of the party.
Sh added that as long as she is in cabinet, she will continue working with ODM.
“As you know am a member of Narc. I am the party leader. But I have been working closely with ODM, so we are different parties,” said Mrs Ngilu.
She said the two parties share a common understanding on various issues which precipitated their partnership.
The Minister derided recent alliances struck by politicians allied to Uhuru Kenyatta.
She said unity for the purpose of defeating an individual is not leadership. She said those interested in the presidency should tell the public what they will offer.
Mrs Ngilu made the remarks on Thursday when she officiated the opening of Narc branch office in Magongo area, Mombasa.
The Minister, who was accompanied by Mutito MP Kiema Kilonzo, said she is in the coast region for the next one week to get views from people and to also to tell them about the party's plans.
