 Thirdway Alliance is trying to reach out for KADU Asili in an attempt to form a pre election coalition.

Thirdway alliance presidential candidate running mate Emmanuel Kombe Nzai says the plan is to form partnership with small parties that have no presidential candidates.

Speaking to the Coast Newspaper over the phone on Wednesday, the deputy presidential candidate said their party has already reached out for several small political parties to actualize the same.

“As we speak Talks are going on at Tononoka in Mombasa between my people and those from KADU Asili to see how we can team up and form a coalition. We have also approached Hon Gunga Mwinga’s Devolution Party which does not have a presidential candidate as well and I can report to you that we are doing so well” Nzai said.

He said their party is also targeting independent candidates who could be interested to team up with them.

“We have initiated some discussions with several independent candidates and most of them have shown positive response towards our request” he added.

Nzai was however quick to dismiss allegations that KADU Asili is a sister party of Jubilee.

“I know the gubernatorial candidate for Kilifi could be supporting president Uhuru Kenyatta as a person but not the party and that’s why they’ve agreed to commence the talks on the coalition with my party”Nzai insisted.

KADU Asili has been calling for its supporters to vote a five piece system and decide on whom to vote for as the president in the August polls.

Meanwhile former Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazngu Kambi bagged in 60 million at a fundraiser held in Malindi over the weekend

Relatives, friends, business people and aspirants allied to Coast based Kadu-asili party congregated at Malindi's Billionaire Club and raised the money to help Kambi's campaigns kitty ahead of a tough battle against ODM's incumbent Amason Kingi and Jubilee's Kilifi North MP  Gideon Mung'aro.

At a rally in Malindi after the fundraiser Kambi lured voters to reject Kingi accusing him of failing to deliver residents from grinding poverty.

Kambi and Kingi have been engaged in a war of words with the incumbent urging voters to reject the former Kaloleni MP accusing him of failing as a CS and being allied to Jubilee.

However Kambi has been defending himself against the accusations of abuse of office owing to the fact that he was cleared of the charges by the director of public prosecution.

"That I was exonerated by the DPP of abuse of office allegations shows am innocent. That I chose to vie on a Kadu-asili party ticket shows am not in Jubilee but I know Kingi is desperate after sensing defeat" said Kambi at Malindi amid cheers.

As Kambi goes to constituencies after the other, Kingi has of late been touring projects and addressing residents while Mung'aro engages in door to door campaigns each trying to get a share of the 510,000 Kilifi County votes.
