Amani National Congress (ANC) has vowed not to work with fellow (National Super Alliance (Nasa) member Orange Democratic Move-ment (ODM) in any political engagement.

On Monday, March 8, ANC said ODM’s electoral malpractices exhibited during the just concluded by-elections exposed the party as undemocratic.

“Thank you, but no thank you for your invitation for ANC to join in your mourning spree. Unlike you, ANC is a party of electoral integrity. ODM must learn to graciously accept election losses. Kindly outgrow the undemocratic habit of never conceding de-feat even where it’s so obvious like in Matungu by-election where ANC walloped you,” wrote ANC national chairman Kelvin Lunani in a statement.

Lunani said Kenya needs to grow in terms of electoral justice but it’s unlikely given the kind of some of the players in the political field.

“They are kind that upon meeting Angel Gabriel, will not hesitate to blame Jesus for the call of their Maker,” Lunani said.

He said ANC was the victim of a planned and coordinated massive voter fraud by ODM in Matungu where Incidents of members being caught bribing voters and IEBC of-ficials were captured by ob-servers
