Why Gideon Moi Joined Jubilee
Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has finally explained what led him and his party KANU to join Jubilee. Gideon spoke in Kenmosa, Eldoret where he had hosted North-lift leaders in an Interdenominational prayer service.
“Our people, especially those who are in KANU, should courageously support me as people who are seeing ahead,” he urged.
According to Gideon, he had entered into a partnership with Jubilee in order to strengthen development across the country ahead of the 2022 presidential elections.
He went ahead and noted that the move was not meant to intimidate any leader from the Kalenjin community, but to put an end to divisive politics.
“We have so many friends and we will continue working with them for the sake of the future of our people and this country at large,” explained Gideon Moi
Gideon was later on blessed by the church leaders and was backed by the political leaders who attended the meeting to proceed President Uhuru Kenyatta come 2022.
Since entering the coalition agreement, KANU has already reaped the benefits with West Pokot Senator Samuel Pogisho replacing his Elgeyo Marakwet counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen as the Senate Majority Leader.
Other leaders in attendance included Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos and MPs Silas Tiren (Moiben) and William Chepkut (Ainabkoi).
For some time now, Gideon Moi has been a threat to deputy president William Ruto in the Kalenjin community, especially in matters succession come 2022.
