What you need to know:

  • 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 signing of the post-election agreement now means that Kanu has become the first party to formalise its agreement with Jubilee, shoring up President Kenyatta's numbers in both Houses .

Independence party Kanu has been operating without a formal pre-election agreement with President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee Party as required by law since 2017.
